Akkeron Group was founded by James Brent in 2009 and the team has led on a number of pivotal property projects across the South West.
KTA Architects from Exeter has designed the Royal Clarence for Akkeron, bringing 35 years of experience in delivering innovative and award-winning projects to the scheme, along with expertise in conservation and heritage projects.
The project team also includes several partner organisations, many of which are based in Exeter so are therefore well aware of the importance of the site to the city.
Team members include Coreus, TWP, X-Consulting Engineers, JLL, Knight Frank and Foot Anstey.
The project team intends to provide local employment opportunities and use local building suppliers wherever possible, and support the local supply chain.
Akkeron plans to engage with Building Greater Exeter, Exeter University, Exeter College, and local secondary schools to offer skills development opportunities.
