A perfect cultural fit

Both Ardmore and First Base share a culture based on integrity and transparency, and both have the operational and decision-making agility of family-run businesses and a successful track record in managing risk.

The prioritisation of design quality, regeneration and place making is common to both organisations, and is combined with a commitment to high management standards and long-term ownership structures.

Our ethos chimes with public sector partners in every way - our experienced leadership team has a strong record of public sector collaboration, and our focus is on building long-term relationships with an emphasis on non-contractual and delivery based project management.

At a time when the availability of finance is a constraining factor, and cost considerations continue to deter bids through traditional procurement systems, our experience of pioneering different business models opens up genuine attractive new options for our public sector partners.
