New Regen Delivery Service Launched by Walker Sime

Date: 26/02/2024
Company: Walker Slime Ltd


GMCC members Walker Sime, the Manchester based multi-disciplinary construction consultancy, has announced the launch of a dedicated Regen Delivery service

The launch comes in response to the increasing demands for regeneration initiatives, driven by government funding for Levelling Up, Town Deal, Future High Street and Sustainable Transport Settlement Funds. 

Aimed at assisting Local Authorities and Private Developers in driving forward regeneration projects to improve towns, cities, and neighbourhoods across the UK, the new service will be led by the highly experienced Cathy Palmer as Director of Regeneration Delivery. 

Cathy, who has a rich background in delivering regen projects that positively impact communities, joins as the former Head of Regeneration Delivery at Wirral Council where she led Birkenhead's once-in-a-generation transformation programme. She is passionate about place-based regeneration and ensuring communities are at the heart of delivery. 

This experience combined with Walker Sime’s recent regen work in Rochdale Town Centre, Stockport 8, Liverpool Waters, Eureka!, and Wirral Waterfront brings a wealth of specialist regen knowledge and a strong track record in delivering regeneration projects. 


The service will offer a wide range of support including project mobilisation, investment plans, delivery strategies, business case development, grant funding advice, governance, bid support, procurement strategy, project planning and risk management, making it a significant offer in the industry. 

It will draw on the skilled specialist teams at Walker Sime including Quantity Surveying, Project Management, Cost Management, Employers Agent, and Bills of Quantities at the consultancy. This comprehensive approach is designed to provide wide-ranging support to clients as they navigate the complexities of regeneration projects. 


Cathy will lead the service, providing expertise in creating major mixed used developments helping energise areas making them more vibrant places to live, work and visit.  She said. "I am excited to lead Walker Sime’s Regeneration Delivery service and look forward to collaborating with Local Authorities and Private Developers to bring about transformative change in communities. 

We are already seeing significant interest from a number of authorities, and I am confident that our expertise and comprehensive approach will help drive successful regeneration initiatives in our communities."
