MELT Property, is a group of property development and investment companies formed in 2002.
In the last 20 years, MELT has built over 100 properties in London, Gloucestershire, and Kent.
Our current development projects have end values of over £100m and a project pipeline worth over £200m.
At the core of MELT’s business are three philosophies called Design-led Development,
Systematic Construction, and Sustainable Sustainability.
With a particular focus on the residential, hotel, and aparthotel sectors, MELT incorporate high levels of sustainability
in their projects, aiming to deliver net-zero carbon/carbon offsetting buildings which are energy self-sufficient.
While MELT’s primary focus is on property development, they have also have built up a residential and commercial property portfolio
of over 50 properties. This includes Danby Lodge, a Grade II listed former hunting lodge set in a commanding position
within thousands of acres of statutory forest in the Royal Forest of Dean which is let on a short-term basis.
MELT Property actively targets sites which have strong potential for value enhancement through planning, but with an existing use or extant consent that puts a floor on minimum project returns. By targeting developments which meet these criteria, we ensure that our projects always make a minimum acceptable level of return, while including significant potential for upside profit.
In order to deliver cost and programme certainty, we also target projects which can be delivered using modular or another form of off-site construction. As modular technologies and delivery methods have started to mature and gain economies of scale, the projects to which they can viably be applied has broadened.
Building using modular construction enables the amount of waste generated by our projects to be reduced and the carbon embodied within developments to be minimised. Climate change will be far more costly to deal with in the future if it is neglected now and so we take the responsibility of being as environmentally sustainable as possible very seriously.
We also seek out projects which demonstrate expertise in combining technologies like ground source heating, solar/hydroelectric power generation and battery storage mature to produce carbon offsetting, energy positive developments. The key for us is that the cost of implementing these technologies must pay for themselves. We call this Sustainable Sustainability – environmentally friendly developments that are delivered in an economically viable manner.
MELT Property aims to achieve optimum mixes of complementary use and innovative design that delivers exceptional spaces, individually tailored to those who use them. I believe that the places people live, work and use should reflect who they are and what they believe.
MELT’s mission is to create inspiring contemporary buildings that enhance and complement the places they are set in. Our developments stand out for their quality of design, sustainability and sensitivity to their surroundings.
Our developments win awards for their quality of design and sensitivity to their environment and surroundings. We regularly break the price ceiling in the markets we develop. We believe that, whatever the price of a property, it should be well designed.
