We have outstanding working relationships with many financial institutions. We use our liquidity to obtain the best financing terms available. Lower origination fees, lower interest rates, lower equity requirements, strong permanent loan conversion terms, all help the partnership increase its overall return.
With a licensed architect on staff, we are able to create a desirable design that not only meets the clients specifications, but is cost effective. Our architect has deep field construction knowledge that balances the construction drawing design. This allows us to provide the project architect the critical direction that results in quality buildings at a lower cost.
Our development executives have experience in the entitlement phase as well. Annexations, zoning, use permits, public hearings, HOA or neighborhood meetings, traffic mitigation requirements are all considered normal courses of business at W.M. Grace Companies. Our understanding of the various entitlement issues helps shorten the project schedule and lower the cost of the project.
Our staff not only manages the design phase of the project, they also serve as construction management once the project starts the building process. This helps ensure that the actual construction meets the intent of the design. It also helps to reduce costly change orders from the contractor.
We view these items as vital steps in any development process and we willingly share our knowledge and experience with our joint venture partners.
