CORE is a proven partner, acting as your own in-house construction manager delivering projects on time and on budget. We have managed design / builds on everything from office buildings, outlet retail and restaurants, healthcare facilities, warehouses and distribution facilities, to urban mixed-use development projects and historic preservation renovations.
Our goal is to consistently provide you a higher project value than the traditional design- bid-build method. CORE will manage every aspect of your build from concept to well past your grand opening. Our experienced team has proven processes and systems in place that keep your project moving forward smoothly ensuring maximum efficiency. CORE will manage the schedule and costs while delivering your build on time and within your budget to the highest standard of quality.
CORE helps its partners figure out the most economical way to develop a project for the best return on your investment. Many developers make the mistake of proceeding with a project before they have completed the proper feasibility studies, then wonder why the project lost money. CORE can help avoid this pitfall by figuring the best use for the property while it is under contract and before closing so there is very little money lost if there are issues that produce poor ROI. By analyzing a project early on, we help you save both time and money.
CORE can help you develop a project if you have the capital but need development expertise and adequate time to devote to the management.
We have relationships with Economic Development Agencies and other quasi-governmental agencies and know how to work with them to help find tax abatements or “free-money” opportunities for infrastructure to hit the returns you need for investors and financing.
Have questions about whether it is it best to lease, own or develop a site build – to – suit? A good feasibility study will help illustrate which option is best so you can make an educated decision. We will help you figure out the most economical financing alternative that fits your needs and budget.
In today’s tight credit environment, securing financing takes time, preparation, and clear communication. Rarely does a lending institution have a staff with the experience and expertise necessary to evaluate all stages of a development (due diligence, design, permitting and construction) to ensure a project is being completed on budget, time and to specifications. At CORE, our years of construction-related work experience, lends us the ability to work closely with the entire development team; lender, owners, designers and contractors, to meet the unique needs of each lending institution providing the critical facts financial officers need throughout all phases of a development.
CORE will customize services to fulfill your individual needs. Considered the “lite” version to our Program Management and Reporting services, CORE’s years of experience providing construction services to assist financial institutions with projects of any size. We will create an individual plan to satisfy all requirements needed in a thoughtful and timely manner.
When the right team is involved lenders perceive less risk. CORE’s work starts before construction even begins reviewing all constructions plans, specifications, contracts, schedules, licenses, zoning, permits, and the budget. We offer line item verification and provide comprehensive invoice verification throughout the entire construction process.
CORE’s passion is ensuring you, our client’s, success through monthly site visits. With our customized reporting system we will provide details on the status of the project, quality of workmanship, and adherence to budget and schedules.
Our goal is to continue to provide timely data and to proactively mitigate any risk in an effort to safeguard the lender and from any possible costly mistakes, schedule delays and legal battles.
To ensure your project is completed prior to the release of final funding, CORE will review final project close-out documentation including:
CORE provides construction exhibit feedback directly to the leasing team and legal consultants. During this period, we build a solid foundation between all parties, establishing a cohesive and collaborative working rapport. Our efforts focus on establishing contact with each tenant design team and outlining project timelines, especially relative to tight submission deadlines. CORE’s work doesn’t stop when the lease is signed. Our standard design review includes preliminary and final review phases, providing tenants with guidance and direction on how to expedite their required governing-agency approvals and permits.
Creating the resources necessary to educate and inform tenants is paramount to a successful grand opening. To ensure the success of your project from inception to completion, CORE provides a customized Tenant Introduction Package (TIP), a Tenant Coordination Report (TCR) and a Design, Construction, Rules and Regulations Manual. Tenants are provided every resource imaginable in order to make sure their creative vision falls in line with the overall guidelines set forth by the Owner.
We are proud of our proactive role in streamlining the permit process. We cultivate relationships early-on with Building Departments, Plans Examiners and Field Inspectors, which allows us to quickly and efficiently get permits approved.
As the grand opening nears, we provide an on-site team of professionals. This process includes oversight of the construction progress of all tenant stores and facilitates and confirms compliance with approved tenant plans. Our team conducts a walk-thru of each space and reports any milestones, construction deficiencies, schedule deviations and other significant field observations. In addition, we handle all punch-list and closeout procedures, freeing up your time to handle other business matters.
