Shawbrook appoints Naismiths to monitor £16.95m development loan

Property consultancy and surveyors Naismiths has been appointed by Shawbrook Bank to monitor one of the latter’s largest development facilities to date.

The £16.95m loan will be used for a project comprising 36 flats spread across three blocks on the south coast of Kent.

Naismiths recently announced that it has now monitored over £2bn of development funding on behalf of institutional investors and finance providers across the UK.

The consultancy’s project monitoring team is currently overseeing more than 400 residential and commercial projects across England, Scotland and Wales.

The projects range in value from £750,000 to £150m and above.

“We are pleased to be supporting development in the regions and this landmark new-build scheme on the Kent coast is a strong reflection of Shawbrook Bank’s appetite and ability to help regional sized developers grow their businesses,” said Philip Kirkwood, senior relationship manager of development funding at Shawbrook Bank.

“At the same time, it’s important that we obtain the right level of due diligence on a scheme this size and we are pleased to confirm that Naismiths has been appointed as our independent monitoring surveyors.

“Their knowledge and experience will be vital to managing the development risk and bringing the scheme to a successful completion.”

Blane Perrotton, managing director at Naismiths (pictured above), added: “This is a fantastic, forward-looking development that we are thrilled to be involved with.

“To have been appointed on one of Shawbrook Bank’s largest developments to date is a huge accolade for our project monitoring team and hopefully underlines the quality of our proposition.

“We look forward to playing a key role in helping it succeed.”
