Supporting clients through the planning and approvals process is a key strength of Sedgman Yeats. We advise clients on appropriate strategies for securing approvals, and offer guidance as to what may or may not be feasible on a particular site. We know from experience that significant time and costs can be incurred as a result of a lack of coordination or understanding of planning and environmental approvals. Sedgman Yeats employs a dedicated team responsible for streamlining this process, assembling the required information and ensuring stakeholders are kept fully informed, providing more efficient and cost-effective results.

Providing an integrated consulting service including feasibility analyses, due diligence, surveying and environmental assessment services, means Sedgman Yeats can reduce the number of consultant interfaces and the resultant delays at the early stages of a project. Through our experienced multidisciplinary team Sedgman Yeats delivers the range of services required to bring a project from concept to operation. One of our key differentiators is the ability to bring together the right people and skills mix to deliver a seamless project solution for clients. As experienced consultants, Sedgman Yeats ensures all project options and plans are kept in perspective in terms of economic, commercial and logistical realities, maximising the return on investment for our clients.

Sedgman Yeats ensures clients receive functional, cost-effective and sustainable solutions by applying in-depth knowledge of approval processes to our in-house engineering capabilities.
