Andy decided to launch Foster Green + Brown in 2019 to allow him to focus his time on the parts of the development process where he believes he can really add value; identifying appropriate development sites and managing projects through the planning process, and additionally utilising technology to help developers work more effectively.
During this time Andy has developed significant expertise in site identification and development appraisal work, Having worked within three very different organisations he has been fortunate to be able to become involved in a range of different project types including private sale housing, affordable housing, retirement living and supported housing, on well over 50 different project. The procurement of this varied portfolio differs significantly and has involved land acquisition and direct build out, land acquisition and third party build out along with third party led package deals.
