Site Selection –
from the vantage point of a licensed real estate professional, we can walk sites with you and make suggestions as to the compatibility with your intended use.
Development – during
the development process, we interface with the engineers,
architect and client. This is crucial towards the success
of arriving at a detailed project scope and budget, for
our client's specific needs.
working with the architects during the design phase, we
supply them the specifications to strengthen overall design
and detail for a state of the art finished building product.
We are ever ready to respond to requests for information,
recommending time and money saving alternatives for our
Engineering – the means and method of construction can have a direct effect on the budget. The earlier we can be involved in the process, the great the effect we can have for our client.
Budgeting – this is at the heart of what we can do for you. We will give you a detailed budget for the plans as drawn. If this does not stay within your budget, we can Value Engineer. Value Engineering challenges us to provide you with the same look and quality of construction at a lower price.
Plan Coordination –
plans are logged into our system with diligence.
Revisions are recorded and distributed accordingly. Dispatching
to the Building Department is done in a timely manner
with no one left out of the loop.
Permitting – each building project is watched over with a full time on site supervisor. He works in conjunction with the Project Manager to troubleshoot on site challenges and to foresee and eliminate bottlenecks that may hinder the scheduled completion date.
Supervision – each
building project is supported with a qualified commercial
superintendent who supervisory skills thrust the project
milestones forward each day. Each superintendent is in communication
with the Project Manager 24/7, troubleshooting and eliminating
bottlenecks that may hinder the scheduled completion date,
tracking progress, tracking shipments, enhancing communication
and thus reducing liability.

clients looking to repeat business. Our project management
staff uses state of the art reporting software for scheduling
and reporting, liaisons with the client and interfaces
