Leaders in Property & Construction

As comfortable on a building site as we are behind a desk, our team is perhaps best known for its strong foundations and thought leadership in property and construction PR and communications – working with a full spectrum of clients from developers and agents, to engineers and contractors.

We know how to tap into the industry’s hot button issues, raise profiles through the strategic use of content on and offline, and generate excitement and footfall at events. We offer in-depth PR, marketing and digital communications strategies for property and construction businesses of all shapes and sizes. By taking a consultative approach, we will work alongside your team to create a bespoke content strategy for your business, putting you in front of your target audience.


We recognise the importance of networking to the property and construction industry. Having built a little black book of contacts over the many years we have serviced this sector, we felt there was a gap in the networking scene for a more informal and relaxed event that truly brings people together. And so, People in Property  – also known as PIP – was invented back in 2017. Since then, they have grown larger than we could ever have anticipated, with thousands flocking to our events across the country. What originated in Nottingham has now extended to Birmingham, Derby, Lincoln, Sheffield, Leicester and London – with more cities on the horizon.



As construction communications specialists, we create dynamic placemaking and consultation strategies to engage with your stakeholders. From local communities and planning committees, to business leaders and politicians, we have the influence to lobby a range of audiences on your behalf and build the fundamental foundations needed for a successful scheme. We pride ourselves on our ability to ensure our clients hear and be heard – regardless of whether it’s a small residential community or a large-scale, mixed-use development. Our dedicated team will raise the profile of your project for all the right reasons before you even step on site.


We offer bespoke packages using our CC Live format to bring your audiences something really unique. Our in-house videographers and trained television presenters develop video content that helps to showcase major developments, sell homes or highlight your technical expertise, as well as build a trusted and credible reputation for your brand. We also offer other forms of broadcast content creation for virtual events including roundtables and podcasts.

We pride ourselves on building strong links between our clients and contacts.

Our team regularly attends MIPIM, the world’s largest property event hosted annually in Cannes. We work with local authorities to promote destinations for investment and support our clients with their business development objectives.

Berry Hill

The Lindhurst Group has been working to bring Berry Hill Mansfield – a mixed-use development scheme set over some 480 acres in north Nottinghamshire – to market for more than 25 years.

The scheme has a controversial history peppered with legal challenges and vocal opposing local residents which, twinned with issues with dust and vibration affecting those living nearby once work started on site, required a proactive PR, crisis and community engagement strategy.

We started working with Cartwright Communications when the Carrington Gardens development was in its construction phase. We are delighted with the work delivered by the team and their PR efforts definitely assisted in increasing the footfall to site and ultimately the reservations that have been secured.
