DEVELOPMENT MANAGEMENT

As a development manager, Cowley Real Estate Partners has the deep interdisciplinary and leadership skills necessary to produce the desired results. From the beginning of the process, we collaborate with the selected team, including architect, engineers, and general contractor, effectively 'quarterbacking' the project to the desired goal. Our comprehensive services allow our clients to feel certain that their project is completed on time and to budget. These services broadly include:

 

Pre-Development Services

Identification of land/building for lease/purchase, that meets client's size, timing, schedule, and budget objective; due diligence management; feasibility analysis; initial development management; land use planning analysis; conceptual design management; consultant selection and management; management of working drawing development; budget and schedule development; government permitting and clearance management; value engineering; and consultant peer review management. 

 

Entitlement Services       

By leveraging our local relationships and a thorough understanding of community and land-use procedures, Cowley Real Estate Partners will guide the project through the entitlement and permitting process by developing strategies for the project. 

Entitlement Strategies       

Identifying neighboring stakeholders; assembling a project team including architects, engineers, contractors and consultants; interface with local, state, and private interest groups; processing the project's necessary entitlements with the designated lead agency; guiding the project through the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”) and the project's impacts and mitigations with a rigorous management of the required focused studies; and negotiating with various agencies for the required approvals.

 

Construction Management

Cowley Real Estate Partners manages every step of the construction delivery process, from contract negotiations, site clearing, confirming competitive bidding, oversight of the day-to-day construction process and close-out to assure delivery of projects on time, on budget, and free of liens. 

 

Cowley Real Estate Partners' construction management services have included group up construction, rehabilitation, adaptive re-use, code compliance retrofits, environmental remediation, capital improvements, and tenant improvements. Services include management of the general contrator's RFP process, sub-contractor bid process, value engineering of all aspects of the project, project scheduling, project cost tracking, construction administration and evaluation of draw packages, the timing/delivery of the project and close-out of construction contracts.

 

In all respects, we act as though it is our money at risk. We are committing to completing the project on time and within budget.
