The core of Real Projectives® (RPL) centers around providing professional management services to plan, control, and execute real estate renovation and construction projects.
So, what’s a project? A project is an organized effort for a limited period of time to accomplish a set of defined goals. In real estate that usually means either a renovation to an existing facility or development of a new building. There is, generally, a business plan of expected scope, schedule and budget/proforma to measure results against.
The industry often intermixes the terms construction manager, project manager, and development manager. In our vernacular a construction manager focuses on the construction phase of a project and can either act as a general contractor or third-party agent. We do not hold contracts with trades so always act as a fiduciary agent of the owner or investor. And for us a project manager is an agent of the owner that is often involved in managing the design and construction or renovation phases of a project. A development manager plays more of a business role negotiating and shepherding deals from concept through occupancy.
