About us

Following the sale in July 2007 of Carlyle Skelton Development Group to its joint venture partner private equity house The Carlyle Group, Capital Holdings was formed to continue dealing with land assembly, planning, development and investment in both the commercial and residential areas.

The two founding directors, Kurt Little and Steve Bowring have a long track record at senior level resulting in a wide range of contacts, skills and experience.

A hands-on approach and experience in running development teams has meant excellent value for money and realistic expectations being achieved.  Design professionals such as architects, structural and service engineers are selected from both small and large firms, as appropriate to the indvidual schemes.

Construction procurement has ranged from design & build to construction management. 

Our philosophy is that above average returns are made by assuming risk, but only once it is well understood and capable of management.
