Property owners

Our group works closely with the developer or owner to ensure the project meets their goals and objectives and is completed on time, within budget, and to the highest quality standards.

We have assisted our clients through a wide array of transactions and helped them to create concrete asset value growth.

  • Physical Site Assessment: Evaluate the site’s physical characteristics to ensure it aligns with the intended use, considering factors like topography, drainage, and access.
  • Permit and Code Compliance: Review regulatory documents to confirm the property complies with building codes, zoning regulations, and other legal requirements.
  • Financial Analysis: Assess the property’s financial performance by analyzing rental income, expenses, and potential for value appreciation using financial statements, rent rolls, and operating expenses.
  • Market Analysis: Analyze market trends, comparable sales, and rental rates in the area to understand the property’s investment potential and market value.
  • Insurance Coverage Review: Evaluate the property’s insurance coverage to ensure it protects against potential risks and liabilities, such as property damage or liability claims.

  • Preliminary Development Site or Building Plan: Develop preliminary plans outlining the proposed layout, structure, and design elements for the development site or building.
  • Prepare a Master Project Schedule: Create a comprehensive project schedule that outlines the timeline for various stages of the development process, from planning and design to construction and completion, to ensure timely and efficient project execution.
  • Serve as a single point of contact between the Owner, Tenants, and Design Team: Act as the central communication hub, facilitating smooth information flow between the project owner, tenants, and the design team. This ensures everyone is on the same page and reduces potential misunderstandings.
  • Overall Design Team Selection and Management: Oversee the selection process for the design team (architects, engineers, etc.) and manage their activities throughout the project lifecycle. This involves coordinating their work, meeting deadlines, and maintaining quality standards.

  • Attend Jurisdictional meetings / public hearings: Represent the project at meetings with local authorities (jurisdictional meetings) and public hearings where necessary. 
  • Quality Control: Review permit drawings and specifications to ensure they meet regulatory requirements and quality standards. This involves identifying any discrepancies or issues that must be addressed before submission.
  • Jurisdictional coordination and permit processing: Liaise with relevant authorities and agencies to coordinate the permitting process. This includes preparing permit applications, responding to requests for additional information, and tracking the progress of permits until they are approved.
  • Management of Real-Time Cost/ Invoice Management: Track project costs in real-time, including soft costs such as design fees, permit fees, and other expenses not directly related to construction. To keep stakeholders informed, provide regular reports on soft costs and cash flow projections.
  • Monitor Project Pro Forma: Monitor the project’s financial performance against the pro forma (projected financial statements). This involves comparing actual costs and revenues with the projected figures, identifying discrepancies, and taking corrective actions to ensure the project remains financially viable.
  • Serve as a single point of contact between Owner, Contractor, Design Team, and Lender: Act as the central communication hub, facilitating effective communication and coordination among all stakeholders involved in the project, including the project owner, contractor, design team, and lender.

This involves ensuring that the bidding process is fair and competitive and that the chosen contractor meets the project’s requirements.
  • Constructability reviews and Value engineering: Conduct reviews to assess the feasibility and efficiency of construction plans and identify opportunities for value engineering, which involves finding cost-effective solutions without sacrificing quality or performance.
  • Manage General Contractor: Provide on-site oversight and monitor the progress of construction activities daily to ensure compliance with plans, specifications, and quality standards. This may involve resolving any issues or conflicts that arise during construction.

This involves coordinating with contractors, subcontractors, and other stakeholders to sequence activities and manage dependencies.

  • Monitor Project Pro Forma and Cash Flow Projections: Continuously monitor the project’s financial performance against the pro forma and cash flow projections to ensure it remains financially viable. This involves comparing actual costs and revenues with projected figures and identifying any discrepancies or potential risks.
