From 1994 leading up to the Crash, we provided Construction Management oversight for a prominent Builder-Developer. Projects were all garden style multifamily, with 9-foot ceilings, which were an upgraded feature at that time. The genius of this model was that the same four to six unit floor plans were used on all projects, in various combinations. This made for efficient designs and fast schedules, which were greatly appreciated by our subcontractors. They responded by providing us with the best pricing in the industry, since they knew they would be in and out quickly, with their retainage checks in hand, long before their other projects were in the finish stages.
The total portfolio completed was about 2,200 units.
