Development Consulting

Each building is an Experience

A great space engages each of your five senses. Our team believes that curating an ideal residential setting or crafting a premier commercial offering takes research, feedback, and discussion. Only by listening to the community can you best serve it. To us, development consulting should be part art, part science, and a little bit of magic.

Our consulting work includes everything from strategy to economic analysis to sustainability recommendations. To best deliver on our goals, we identify and define target archetypes early on, so we can understand what matters to them. We research local, regional, national, and even international markets to know what works now as well as what experiential trends are on the horizon. We go over our plans with contractors, developers, and architects because we bring everything we have to the table and we want to hear from everyone.

SUSTAINABILITY

We Value Sustainability

Changing policies, evolving technology, and increasing market demand continue to drive sustainable development in the Pacific Northwest. This means more buildings with complex systems that require new strategies for user education. Sustainability goes beyond environmental stewardship and extends to the way we treat each other. Utilizing a strategy heavy on education and social programming, our goal is to make sustainable decisions easy and logical.

GOING GREEN

LEED Certified

To achieve LEED, early considerations allow for appropriate under- standing of the often complex systems involved within a building and optimization of their ongoing operations. In this market, to be a leader in this space, it’s essential to take an integrated approach to your building, which carries through building development and management. While achieving LEED is something to be celebrated, this alone will not make you a market leader in this space. We have found that incorporating ongoing programs such as resident and vendor education programming, waste management, coordination in capital improvement, and community outreach will help residents maximize the efficiency of your green building and solidify the projects position as a leader in the local community.
