Specialists in Shopping Centre Strategy and Value Engineering


About us




Hawksworth was founded in 2010 by Bob Stevenson and Mike Holt, combining over 50 years’ experience in the shopping centre market.

From our base in London, we operate across Europe, advising the leading funds, property companies, developers and banks. We provide strategic advice and business planning, both on a one off basis to be used by the client, or on a longer term basis where we deliver the key components of the strategy.

We advise on all categories of shopping centre, where we are often tasked with squeezing additional value from the very best centres, or turning around under-performing centres, even preparing centres for sale. We also source off market purchase opportunities, as well as identifying value add solutions for potential purchases.

Our style is personal and hands on, working closely and in tandem with our clients. Our strategies are tailored to individual shopping centre and client needs, but our goal is universal – to create and add value.
