DJR teamed up with a high end custom home builder under a project management deal to develop 20 acres of raw infill land. The project is exemplary of a successful builder with a number of ongoing projects bringing in DJR to assess, manage, and create value out of a property with significant potential issues in the “horizontal” development and construction of 8 2.5-acre lots plus three bioretention basins and trails, in which such a builder has less expertise than DJR. The builder would take it through buildout of 8 beautiful single family homes.
DJR’s effort began with an extensive costing analysis for the land development work including earthwork and potential rock processing analysis, quantities estimates, consultant/contractor bidding, and cost estimates of essentially everything it would take to get to finished lots ready to go vertical. DJR’s analysis and report to the team was in the form of its integrated Land Development Program and Budget.
The next phase involves property acquisition and project management services during construction consisting of coordination and management of consultants, contractors, and public agency issues during completion of the grading and subdivision improvements.
