WE HAVE DEVELOPED AND OPERATED A DIVERSE PORTFOLIO OF ASSETS, ENABLING US TO PROVIDE LEADERSHIP AND GUIDANCE TO OUR CLIENTS FROM AN OWNERSHIP PERSPECTIVE.

REPRESENTATIVE ACTIVITIES

Due Diligence / Analytical Services

Our financial-sector clients rely on us to provide a comprehensive evaluation of all critical elements of a proposed development, including: project team, permitting and entitlement, site feasibility, logistics and sequencing, budget and schedule. Our conclusions and recommendations are based on our in-depth experience on hundreds of development projects worldwide.

Ongoing Project Advisory Services

SPD provides project advisory services to over 70 real estate investment firms, developers and institutions. From the commencement of a development project, having an expert on board benefits all stakeholders in the early recognition of potential risks to the budget and schedule.

Mediation / Dispute Resolution

SPD prides itself on resolving differences between stakeholders in a practical, collaborative manner. Our deep understanding and experience in virtually all aspects of real estate, construction and development enables us to thoroughly grasp the issues at hand and render advice and suggestions on how projects can emerge from the paralysis that often stems from lingering disputes.

Fee Development

SPD offers full-scale fee development and development management services to fund clients, institutions and developers who prefer to execute a project without an operating partner. Our alternative approach provides clients with a superior level of transparency and control while also appropriately aligning interests among stakeholders. SPD has the expertise to navigate a project from site selection and entitlements, through the establishments of scope, budget and schedule, to design and construction management.
