Whether you are rethinking your home for a growing family, reinventing your office to accommodate a thriving business, or reimagining an empty lot as a community contributor, we use creative thinking and problem solving to realize your goals.
Rarely does development fall into someone’s lap. Deliberate, targeted efforts to identify project types and goals lead to successful projects. By partnering early in the process, we can help you find the building you’re looking for or explore the myriad of options for the lot you already own.
- Property identification
- Property analysis
- Zoning requirements
- Feasibility studies
- Pro forma
Once the basis of the project is established, a series of overlapping processes begin. In addition to financial modeling, we concurrently evaluate varying schemes, including options for design based on zoning, marketability, and community impact. As soon as the direction is determined, we manage the execution of each step from design completion and permitting to construction and leasing.
- Finance coordination
- Lender negotiation
- Contractor selection
- Bid review
- Project management
- Construction management
- Contract negotiation
- Project scheduling
- Design review
- Value engineering
General contracting begins well before crews arrive onsite. We prefer to be involved early on with the client and the designer to provide useful feedback about project cost and sequencing. In addition, our early involvement facilitates a stronger understanding of the project goals once construction begins.
- Residential: additions & new construction
- Commercial: tenant improvements & small new construction
Our team implements and maintains the budget and schedule through coordinated management of subcontractors and suppliers, while carefully supervising progress to control quality. Throughout the process, we work with the client and architect to ensure that challenges are quickly resolved and expectations are consistently met.
Our skills in both managing the development process and executing the construction of a building allow us to provide streamlined results and educated feedback at each phase of the project.
Construction is the largest line item in a project budget, frequently making up 75% of the cost. Our experience allows us to manage the project with those costs in mind, whether we actually construct the building or not. However, when we do fulfill the role of developer and contractor, the efficiencies gained allow us to shrink the cost of construction, making a significant impact on the development budget and facilitating better economic returns, or allowing that money to go into other project features. Conversely, our background in development allows us to understand the constraints and limitations, and systems of the project delivery in order to provide a superior construction experience.
