Founder and CEO,
Evan Maindonald has over 25 years of experience in Property Development and Investment.
In the last 18 years, his company MELT Property has built over 100 properties in London, Gloucestershire and Kent with total end values of over £22m. The projects they are currently working on have end values of over £60m. Over time, their attention has shifted from residential development to mixed use projects and commercial development with a particular focus on the hotel and serviced accommodation market. They have raised over £8m in equity for their current property development projects, over £2m of which was crowdfunded.
MELT Property aim to achieve optimum mixes of complementary use and innovative design that deliver exceptional spaces, individually tailored to those who use them. They believe that the spaces people use should reflect who they are and what they believe. Their mission is to create inspiring contemporary buildings that enhance and compliment the places they are set in. Their developments win awards for their quality of design and sensitivity to their environment and surroundings and regularly break the price ceiling in the markets for which they are developed.
Evan has a degree in Computer Science and an MBA from IMD in Lausanne. He regularly presents at property events around the UK, appears on a number of different programmes on Property TV and is currently writing a book about how to get started in property development.
