Developing commercial real estate can be a very challenging business which needs a complete understanding of building regulation stipulations, commercial tenants’ requirements as well as significant financial investment.
Following the spectacular boom and subsequent bust of the sector during the financial crisis between June 2007 and July 2009, there has been a slow and steady positive upturn for this market. Where previously the commercial sector had gained a reputation for instability, now, against a vastly improving economic backdrop, commercial property is back and one of the best selling investments on the UK market.
This is good news for frameXpress customers, who can benefit from the company’s full grasp on building legislation requirements as well as zoning laws. Furthermore, the company has the ability to assist with project management if needed.
Since joining framexpress in 2013, Sarah Price has firmly established the Commercial Division at the company as a market leader nationally. The frameXpress team can provide customers with valuable insights and advice on commercial real estate development, having expertise in negotiating with local authorities, representatives of local residents as well as business owners.
A recent installation project for the Bromford Housing Trust in Shrewsbury, reflects the high standards offered, with the highest specification products recently installed in two commercial buildings.

London has recovered much of the value lost post financial crisis, where property values had nosedived by more than 44% between 2007 and 2009. Today, many see that there is great scope within the sector and consider that a broad cyclical recovery can be made in commercial property development outside of the Capital; and the general feeling towards the UK commercial property market is becoming increasingly more and more positive.”
