You've used your vision and grit to create a thriving business and a great reputation, even a legacy. You know the world, our industry, and your life is evolving rapidly and you're thinking about what's next. What growth initiatives should you pursue?

Project Advisory Services - Achieving Success by Navigating Complexity, Managing Risks, and Supporting Turn-Arounds
GMP Development · Labor Strategies · Risk Mitigation · Regulatory Hurdles · Contingencies · Recapitalization
Advisory services for real estate developers considering high rise and complex construction projects requires a more robust evaluation than at any other time in our history. Revisiting the basic industry questions as to who can BID, BUY, BUILD and BILL these projects is now subject to a paradigm shift in our industry. In the not too distant past, selecting the right construction management firm took you the majority of the way to schedule and cost certainty. You relied on was an established track record, primarily based on the company’s past performance, purchasing power, trade contractor relationships, command and control of a labor force, experience and team. Value adds were sophisticated insurance programs, logistics and regulatory expertise with trade contractors who were open shop or union. Projects of a certain size, the requirements to use a tower crane, the much sought after 3 day cycle and there was a dividing line. This is no longer the case. Every project has the same priorities. Quality, Budget and Schedule. It’s uncanny how frequently there is a divergence from this criteria without a clear understanding of where things when awry. The drive to be first in class to utilize predictive analytics to manage outcomes is a differentiator for our customers.
Technology & Innovation - Implementing New Tools and New Systems To Change How Our Industry Works
Data & Analytics · Automation & Visualization · Communication & Transparency · Creativity & Implementation
Our industry is notorious for living in the past, being slow to adapt new solutions, without leveraging technology. Entrepreneurial and tech driven companies have long tried to "disrupt" how we work and "help us into the 21st century". Yet, they typically lack the deep domain expertise and industry knowledge necessary to solve today's challenges in a cost effective and scalable way. We believe that innovation and technology adoption will be driven from within our industry, with established leaders driving the progress. Therefore, we incorporate technology as the foundation of everything that we do. We create custom technology solutions to solve specific challenges, such as our SHE Knows Opportunity Database. We also partner with the most impactful technology providers to introduce key technologies to our clients, such as EYRUS' Trade Recording and Reporting Platform. Be on the lookout for an invite to the Construction Innovation Association that we are spearheading.
