Our services are tailored to the specific needs of our clients and can be offered under a full service delivery model or on an individual assignment basis. We are flexible and provide our expertise to ensure the most comprehensive solutions to our clients’ real estate development objectives.
Project Management Services
Full Spectrum Project Management for Real Estate Development Projects
We project manage the entire development process on behalf of our clients so that they are fully informed and equipped for sound decision-making at every stage. Our expertise in service programming, complex financing strategies and the detailed development and construction process enable us to help clients implement their projects in a responsible, thoughtful and sustainable manner, while they stay focused on the important work of their mission.
Construction Management/Owner’s Representative Services
In conjunction with our project management, we provide a full array of construction management services including coordination of entitlement phase; design development; preconstruction ; general contractor procurement and oversight; coordination of all owner-provided items and cost review/cost control through completion. Embedded in our process is a deep understanding of the importance of owner input during the design process. We strive to ensure our clients are “active owners” of the projects we build.
Often the array of public sector financing tools we work with has complex requirements for compliance. From the very beginning, we work with finance and program staff to set up any systems necessary to fulfill funder requirements and help integrate those into the regular routine of the organization.
Finance Strategy Development
LDP possesses an unparalleled level of expertise across a wide array of complex financing sources – both public and private. Our team brings 25 years of affordable housing and community development finance experience, often combining numerous complex programs to achieve the most financially feasible outcomes for challenging projects. We have the ability to explain complex financing concepts in a way that supports real understanding and implementation by our clients. Because we work across the nonprofit and for-profit development spectrum, we understand the organizational and sustainability needs of our nonprofit clients and the financial risk and return considerations of our for- profit clients as they consider socially impactful real estate development projects.
Program Service Delivery Consultation
We provide program-specific consultation to our clients to map out their strategy for expanding or adding services (particularly homeless and supportive housing) in conjunction with development projects. Our program service consultation looks at the current systems in place, the demand to be addressed, gaps in service across the delivery system and the agency’s ability to meet the demand with in-house and collaborative approaches. We help our clients identify and coordinate various resources to meet the needs of their service delivery programs on an ongoing basis.
