Project Development

Project Development is the step-by-step process to get a project ready to build. Some of theses steps include property acquisition, defining zoning regulations, zoning approvals, civil engineering, geotechnical pre-work, the hiring of an architect, development of plans and bid specifications or Subcontractor negotiations.
 

Acquisition

McLauchlin & Company and our team of licensed real estate professionals can help locate potential building sites, verify zoning requirements, concurrency and other site specific issues, all leading to successful site acquisition. McLauchlin & Company can also act as an agent of the client in the negotiations, if directed.

 

Site Selection & Evaluation

Choosing a building site isn’t a simple task. There are many factors to be examined, such as natural, man-made, social and economic. McLauchlin & Company excels in Site Selection and Evaluation. We consider where to build, how to build and the impact on local and global environments. We also look at ongoing costs such as utility bills and regular and routine maintenance costs.

 
Whether selecting a site or working with an existing site, and whether the site is urban, suburban or rural, there are many aspects that can be examined with respect to how to proceed with construction.

 

Permitting

From the beginning of the relationship, McLauchlin & Company will coordinate with the building department and other government agencies to obtain site approval, building permits and other jurisdictional requirements.

 

Feasibility

Throughout its organization, McLauchlin & Company has the staff experience and available consultants to help clients make sound business decisions to maximize revenue and efficiencies. We have the talent to work with each client to build a level of trust and understanding of the project’s feasibility, which allows for a better building process.
