In 2017, driven by a mutual desire to help local authorities deliver  their housing programmes, Airey Miller set up a consultancy to achieve this objective.

They recognised that their skills and experience (technical and client-side), whilst different, were geared  towards  achieving the same objective, and therefore created a unique partnership approach.

As many local authorities had not undertaken any meaningful housebuilding for decades, they faced this challenge of skill shortages and lack of support.

As a result of this we established the COUNCILS BUILDING HOMES forum for local authorities.

Airey Miller provides professional management and client-side service which, unlike other consultancies, is contained under 'one roof'. We have teams of professionals dedicated to meeting the capacity needs of each of our clients on a project-by-project basis.


We act as your in-house outsourced resource, applying the full scope of our experience and expertise to supporting your teams. Our approach allows you to retain total control of your projects with the significant back-up of the Airey Miller professional team and services, building a greater capacity within your organisation. 

Our teams are able to guide in-house teams through the project development process and stages, providing step-by-step guidance and advice, as they negotiate each stage of work.  This enables them to learn on the job and acquire a more entrepreneurial and commercial way of thinking.
