Optimizing Success Through Involvement at Project Inception

Our ability to impact project success and enhance value is greatest at the early stages of a project.

The benefit of our development management services is rooted in bridging the gap in the traditional value chain. From pre-investment stages through construction, completion, occupancy, and the transition to operations, MGAC’s development management team can provide continuity across all stages of development.

In our experience, the time-lapse between financial modeling and approval and then actual commencement of design and construction is most likely to be the weak link. MGAC has the experience and expertise needed to secure the most vulnerable stages of the value chain. We maintain and update models and provide constant forecasting of the market, projected capital expenditures, and time impact schedule scenarios to bridge the vulnerability and build resiliency into the process.

The pre-investment stage of any project is the most critical; it determines the project’s propensity for success. Financing and approval for the development project to move forward into entitlements, design, and construction is where the die is cast. We seamlessly integrate with your team during this crucial phase to understand, protect, and direct your investments, developments, partnerships, and business strategies.
