With an impressive record of success in providing owner representation services during the development of commercial properties in the Northeast, we offer expertise in a full range of real estate scenarios, including the development of build-to-suit properties. Available services include site selection and acquisition, design management, entitlements, financial analysis, construction management, leasing, and marketing.
Given our wide-ranging skill base, we can offer a wealth of relevant services to guide a client through the entire development and construction process. These services include, but are not limited to: feasibility studies, value management, risk management, budget development, design management, cost control and cost management, procurement strategies, scheduling and programming, value engineering, operations and maintenance manuals, handover strategies, and building sign-offs.
As part of our comprehensive management services, we provide a consultancy service for clients who are developing a project or who do not require a full project management / construction management service. Our consultancy identifies the client’s specific business needs and manages the issues to be resolved before the project can be developed further. This allows the benefits of early planning and management input without the need for long-term commitments.
Whether it is a 150,000 SF build-to-suit with exotic requirements or a 5,000 SF tenant taking a partial floor, we will help you make the coordination and implementation a smooth process.
LEED / GREEN BUILDING CONSULTING SERVICES
At Carlyle we assist our clients in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) assessment, implementation and certification of their project.
LEED Green Building Rating System™ encourages and accelerates the worldwide use of sustainable green building and development practices through outlining and implementation of specific tools and performance criteria. These criterions can be met on new construction or existing buildings to meet the LEED green energy standards.
LEED allows building owners and operators to have an immediate and measurable impact on not only their buildings’ performance but also the environment as well, ultimately saving money in the process.
LEED does not just mean installing green energy products, but rather approaches the design in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
