How We Can Help
Strategic planning and consultation
Our Project Management team will prepare an analysis of pertinent issues to define costs, schedules, and a transition strategy if required. The result is reduced operating expenses and personnel costs, increased efficiency and productivity, and operational flexibility.
For tenant improvements, our Project Manager will be your advocate and advisor, charged with coordinating work letters and related lease provisions, managing construction costs, communicating base building definitions, ensuring schedules and commencement dates are met, and identifying landlord obligations and commitments during design and construction.
Construction management and supervision
We will oversee every step of your construction project, including site review and supervision, organization and logistics, reporting, design and construction management, change orders, submittal process, project cost management and value engineering, quality assurance, performance measurement, billing administration and planning management with contractors and local authorities to ensure coordinated and seamless handover, commissioning and acceptance process.
We will help you identify goals for the space and then develop all required construction documents and detailed written specifications for all building systems and components. Our team will create and oversee schedules, budgets, and contracting so that your space is built according to plan—on time and within budget.
Our structured project management methodology of organizing, managing, and coordinating the movement of people, equipment, contents, and furnishings between or within physical facilities ensures minimal disruptions to operations. We assume responsibility for the entire process, from coordinating budgets and schedules and managing change communications, right down to the physical move.
By integrating projects into transactions we draw upon all relevant expertise throughout our organization to analyze a real estate opportunity and to deliver a holistic solution that encompasses all characteristics of a client's space occupancy.
Technical due diligence
We have the capacity, professionals and technical knowhow to carry out detailed technical inspections, surveys and assessments of any type of real estate asset in any portfolio. This is particularly relevant for Transaction Consulting as it provides a detailed analysis of the property and an insight into probable improvement costs and any necessary planning, statutory or regulatory issues that need to be resolved in order to optimize the value of the asset.
Using our proprietary change management model, we will diagnose challenges, such as employee resistance, and create a customized plan to transition employees through the change process.
Health and safety coordination
We provide full Health and Safety coordination services so that the clients legal obligations to the regulating authorities are guaranteed throughout the project and during construction.
