“Teamwork is a critical aspect for the success of any major real estate development.”

Teamwork is a vital aspect for the success of any real estate development. Sadly general contractor often do not always concern themselves with the viability/profitability of the project. The traditional general contractor considers the commercial aspect of the project as someone else’s problem. Another commonly held belief by some general contractors is that their responsibility is limited to building what is on the plans period, regardless whether or not it is right for the owner/developer.

“At Exeter we are sensitive to the feasibility of a project and we never compromise on economic issues.”

At Exeter we strive to maintain the focus on the profitability and the financial performance of the development in order to obtain the maximum yield from the development with a maximum protection for the owners from possible liability.

  • Reach a peak efficacy to obtain an economical quality product.
  • Consideration of all available alternatives is essential in order to maximize the return on stake holder’s investments. In most choices and decisions, to which we are confronted we will analyze the risk factor.
  • Constant communication with all the specialists and professionals to help bring together the best possible solutions at each step of the construction and in turn, we will provide you with reports allowing for the best possible progressive monitoring process and fast decision making.
  • Support and help the consultants and the trades at the high level construction planning which will show the big picture, all the way to the portioning of the work. We will verify and issue the proper checklist that will guide the trades in order to avoid delivery delays and post delivery problems.
  • Implement a relationship between all the participants that will get everyone on the same page so that we all respond to the project feedback seamlessly.
  • Initial project organization begins with a realistic work schedule and it has to be verified regularly and we must ensure a proper implementation of corrective action at all construction progress meetings.
  • To protect the interest of the owners, we will ensure the creation of a complete paper trail and photo survey of the construction site to report the activities of the trades and the verifications of all the consultants.
  • Provide flexibility guidelines due to a tight timetable, some projects will require a delicate balancing act to shrink the construction process and save time and money. Therefore, in a portion of the project we might be obliged to adopt a “design built” approach to “fast track” a portion of the work: fast tracking compresses the project schedule by running design and construction phases simultaneously.
