Project Development Services

Mission:
We champion a behavioral change from the traditional mindset to achieve value and certainty through collaboration.

The real estate development sector expertise frequently functions separately in silos. Real Estate Developers focus on new development visions, business models, financing, land acquisitions and property management. Designers turn that vision into design documentation. Contractors use the design documentation to build a project. Business and Facility Operators use the business model and the completed project to trade in the market. There is rarely consistent supervision supporting the vision from inception to operation and ensuring all stakeholders key requirements are coordinated, prioritized and achieved. Many times, there is a lack of organization to strategically explore, evaluate and optimize development opportunities. We help our clients overcome these problems by applying lean construction principles to all stages of the development process. With the use of these principles, we achieve certainty by breaking down the traditional industry barriers through collaboration. This mindset drives value to the client.

VALUE PROVIDED

Manage, Facilitate and Deliver completed development projects on behalf of stakeholders. This role will provide Stakeholders the freedom to productively explore all the potential future developments and growth opportunities. We will actively study development opportunities with the stakeholders to determine which development projects will be successful financially and which projects should be avoided. We will then support the identification of the opportunities that achieve the greatest return on investment for the stakeholders.

Reduce Risk through methodical planning, preparation and proper documentation. Risk will be minimized by providing a more comprehensive informed platform for strategic decisions. We will be securing needed details and direction to support an efficient development delivery process. This process will then guarantee the timely delivery of a quality product that meets or exceeds the financial returns.

Provide a High Level of Experience through tested and accomplished personnel that are experts in design management, construction management and cost management of a development project.

Utilize Innovative Approaches, ideas and methods to all stages of the development process. Lean Design and Lean Construction principles will be used to support an efficient approach. We will provide fresh eyes from a different perspective. This culture will eliminate the limitations of repeatedly delivering through the traditional approach of design, bid and construct. We will capitalize on value added competencies through techniques such as Target Value Delivery.

Support Increased Efficiency in the Stakeholder’s development process.
Stage 1. Our approach is to review and support the enhancement of the client’s methods of development delivery. In addition, we will organize and quantify the initial development opportunity for the client’s review and direction – setting the stage for a methodical, measured approach to the development process.

Stage 2. Through collaboration in the early stages of development, certainty will be established by completing feasibility studies, back planning, creating a development brief to match the requirements of the financial model and researching alternatives to optimize the development (structure, height, materials and prefabrication methods of delivery). These actions will further define the development strategy and support the creation of a business plan. The focus is to ensure the client is able to control the direction, progress and approvals of the development prior to resources and capital being committed.

Stage 3. The development brief and design brief will be used to provide clear direction for the initiation of the detailed design and support the development of critical components such as the procurement, funding and exit strategies.

Stage 4. The strategic business and development objectives will not be lost or hindered through the design, contracting and construction stages of the development process. With the pre-planning captured in the development and design brief, we can look to optimize the design and construction to capitalize on further opportunities in the delivery process.

Stage 5. After the construction is completed, we help manage the client deliverables, takeover and support the launch into the intended businesses operations.
