About Us

Black Cat Building Consultancy was formed in October 2015. The business is made up of 11 very experienced individuals who have all held respected positions in firms such as CBRE, Savills, DTZ (Cushman and Wakefield) JLL and Deloitte. Collectively the team have 180 years of market expertise with an impressive track record.

The business was formed to provide clear, commercially focused advice and support to our clients within short timescales, often on sensitive transactions. Confidentiality is incredibly important to many of our clients.

Our team can respond and mobilise rapidly and adapt our service offering to meet our clients’ specific requirements or reporting procedures. The team frequently operate outside of normal hours and over weekend periods to minimise the impact of surveyors going about inspections on sensitive sites. We work very closely with our clients, their agents and hand selected specialist consultant teams. Our reports are carefully audited, commercially aligned, well-rounded and presented with your objectives in mind.

We provide world class reporting standards and employ only the most experienced individuals at the very top of their game.

We spend the time on instructions to allow us to develop a detailed knowledge and understanding in order to provide our clients with a commercial advantage. We offer professional indemnity insurance cover and limit of liability in line with our corporate competitors at £5 million.

As part of Black Cat Building Consultancy we don’t just want to be proud of what we do, we also want to celebrate how we do it and that we are different from our corporate competitors. That’s why we all share a set of values, the same values shared by everyone at Black Cat:

Give our all

We’re always restless, always curious. We want to know what makes our clients tick and we constantly ask ‘what if?’ and ‘why the hell not?’ We are not settlers nor steady and we always question the norm. We leap at the chance to try new ways of doing things better – for our clients, our colleagues and the wider business. Quality is everything. We go about our business in an amazing way and provide a memorable service for our clients who will want to tell their colleagues. We want to defy their expectations, develop fresh ways of doing things and deliver those memorable little touches which make a deal happen and our clients business plan succeed.

Get it all

We ask our clients what they want, because we’ll always want to know what makes them tick. We never tell our clients what they need and we are not bound by standard documents. Every client is unique, their requirements are specific and our service and output is tailored for them. Black Cat will give you everything you need to keep on being your best, and we strive to perform better than our clients expect. We stay on our toes, in a good way, we challenge, inspire and empower our team to punch above our weight. All things being equal we are just that much better.

Straight up

We play it straight, we are honest and decent. We do the right thing for our clients and believe that what is good for our clients and their businesses is good for our business and the markets we work within. You will always know what Black Cat expect from you, and what you can expect in return. Transparency is our strength and everything we do says ‘we give a damn’.

Awesome brand

We have created a strong brand which stands out from the norm, we are passionate about it, our brand is everything and we use it everywhere. Our brand is backed up by our people who deliver an awesome, refreshing experience with unrivalled personal and sensational service.

Smart Disruption

We love to outsmart the competition. Challenging the status quo we sidestep predictable thinking to punch above our weight. We love it when our clients challenge too, because when they are thinking differently, collectively we have the edge we need to outsmart the competition and the market.
