What do we do?

Our clients often comment, "we didn't know you did that."

Our consultancy work spans a wide spectrum, from conducting Socio and Economic Impact Assessments for transformative projects like the Granton Waterfront Regeneration to examining the ripple effects of policies such as the rent freeze on Scotland's housing market in collaboration with the British Property Federation (BPF).

Some examples

Ever wondered about the economic impact of pedestrianising a bustling street like George Street? As a Rettie researcher, you'd have the chance to contribute to projects like these. Our recent work includes Economic Impact Assessments for the George Street Pedestrianisation and the Granton Waterfront Regeneration, where our insights enabled £16.4m in funding to unlock a £1.3bn regeneration.
