Navigating from an initial project idea through the complex labyrinth of designing and constructing a project within a budget and schedule, yet meeting the market expectations is an extremely demanding task. Once a project is conceptualized, the establishment and management of a unified design team and other essential consultations, the development of accurate budgets and schedules (more importantly, the maintenance and continual analysis of them) all require a dedicated team with the tested experience and the encompassing knowledge to guide a project through to its successful completion. Colliers has provided Construction and Development Management Services to the private and institutional real estate communities for over 20 years. 


The expertise and unique management that Colliers brings to a project from the initial concept phase through project completion will benefit the client in numerous ways including:

  • Our proven experience in commercial construction and development, including our own development, will provide ownership with the seasoned insight of a strong, experienced, cohesive project team. The "lessons learned" in a demanding environment can readily be transferred to other locations.
  • Ability to analyze preliminary zoning and massing studies to allow for building use and program options.
  • Early hard and soft cost budgeting to allow for insightful decisions relating to project scope.
  • Development of an early conceptual milestone schedule to allow for a thorough understanding of the time sensitive owner decisions required to eliminate unnecessary "false steps" and produce a successful project.
  • Experienced approach to design team management and contractor recommendations and selections.
  • Current knowledge of industry pricing utilizing projects and historical data as well as strong relationships with contractors and specialty tradesmen to obtain current costs, labor demands, and detailed understanding of the marketplace.
