Gary is an expert developer of bespoke financial and data collection models that underpin a broad spectrum of major public and private redevelopment, regeneration and portfolio analysis projects.Gary's modelling provides specific solutions to enable clients to address issues and make the most of opportunities that arise.

He specialises in viability and affordability analysis of development and regeneration schemes by developing purpose built financial models to test different options under multiple delivery structures utilising complex cash flow methods. He uses his strong understanding and background in financial statistics to run sensitivities on core assumptions and accurately quantify the level of risk associated with different schemes.

In addition to development and regeneration schemes, he also has extensive experience in modelling portfolio analysis, business rates schemes, revolving funds, and non-development-related viability. Some notable projects Gary has worked on include the Brent Cross Cricklewood Regeneration, the Winstanley & York Road Estate Regeneration, South West region Enterprise Zone modelling and the Brighton I360 where his work underpinned the effort to secure £36m in funding from the council.
