Project Management:

The Colston Company can serve as the project manager. Project management is a discipline with in the real estate construction and development field that was created to manage the complex components of a project. Few companies can dedicate the resources required to attend to every aspect of the project, yet these components are critical to the project's success. An experienced project manager augments the owner's in-house staff with development, pre-construction, design, entitlements, engineering, construction, and management expertise.
Pre-construction Planning / Land acquisition due-diligence and assemblage:

Think of us as your “outsourced Director of Land Acquisition.” We will investigate purchases and perform due-diligence by visiting the site and reviewing the zoning implications. We can represent the smaller developer who may not have the capacity to hire a full-time land acquisition person. We fill this void by either negotiating new purchases or by assisting with an assemblage or relocation that may be stalling your current project. We also provide preliminary cost estimates.
