Analysis of client objectives, government codes, and property characteristics to determine the highest and best use of a site through the creation of a Property Development Analysis Report (PDA). The PDA provides a strategic game plan for governmental submittals and plan preparation.
Entitlements & Discretionary Hearings
Preparation of applications and case findings for projects seeking discretionary approvals for development allowances. Expert presentations are made to hearing authorities including planning commissions, architectural review boards, and city councils.
Working with the design and engineering teams, Crest submits plans for plan check, coordinates corrections, clears conditions with all pertinent departments, and obtains building permits through a maximally efficient procedure. Accelerated permitting timelines are achieved through knowledge of the plan check procedure, relationships with city officials, and a detail-oriented management approach.
Construction Change Orders
Changes often occur after permits are issued. When they do, Crest obtains supplemental approvals from the City as soon as possible so as not to interfere with financially sensitive schedules. Through a direct line of contact with the city, Crest is able to influence priority processing of these field changes.
On certain projects, Crest will act as an owner’s representative or project manager by identifying project needs, selecting consultants and contractors, preparing schedules and budgets, and seeing that they are complied with through oversight of the team, while interfacing with the community, governmental agencies, and client's legal and financial counsel.
