As the project’s “eyes and ears,” we can provide on-site representation to make sure that construction proceeds in accordance with contract documents on time and within budget. Working as an advocate, Park Lane experts enable clients to focus on their core business without distraction.
Our Team of construction professionals have hands-on experience and skills that are applied throughout each phase of a project. We provide clients with this technical knowledge to keep you abreast of events, enabling you to make informed and timely decisions.
PROJECT & COST MANAGEMENT
Our team of Project Managers have extensive experience in project and cost management, coordinating and directing consultants, contractors and budgets during both the planning and construction phases of a project. Our team gains an in-depth understanding of client requirements and expectations and effectively and efficiently manages and communicates these to all parties of the construction project. Experience has taught us to thoroughly understand our clients’ needs and goals and to provide a tailored service specific to each and every project. At Park Lane, we are committed to providing our clients with an excellent level of service which exceeds their expectations.

BUILDING EVALUATION/DUE DILIGENCE
Park Lane has extensive experience in building evaluation surveys and due diligence/condition assessment investigations on numerous types of building structures. At Park Lane, we will ensure all prospects and risks of your potential real estate investment are identified. Our building evaluation surveys typically consist of a review of visibly accessible structural framing elements of a building, building façade components and key mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. Observed deficiencies are documented and a thorough evaluation is provided to our clients, which allows them to make informed decisions by increasing certainty about the genuine value of the real estate.
LENDER REPRESENTATION/FUND MONITORING
Our experience in leading and managing development projects equips us with the expertise to advise on due diligence and fund monitoring. Major investors, such as banking and fund clients, call on this service to provide development funding for construction projects. We act on behalf of major funds, investors and banks in overseeing capital projects when our clients provide external funding.
PROJECT ENTITLEMENT MANAGEMENT
Successful projects are never an accident. They are the result of intention, consistent effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution. They are the culmination of the right choices made from many alternatives. Park Lane offers full entitlement management services to our clients and has the local experience and track record to ensure the desired outcome is achieved. Park Lane will manage the entitlement process from inception to completion. Our services include appointing and coordinating all necessary specialist consultants, including legal, political, traffic, environmental and design, establishing a detailed timeline and strategy, and finally managing the team and process through to a successful completion.
PROCUREMENT & CONTRACTUAL STRATEGY MANAGEMENT
Selecting the correct procurement route is essential to a project's success. At Park Lane, we take the necessary time with clients to review the procurement routes available to them by understanding their key objectives and their positions on risk. We will ensure the manner in which they buy the construction works is appropriate for their business.
SCHEDULING AND PLANNING
The schedule is a key tool within project management as it sets out the intended route through to completion. This is useful not only for establishing the overall timescale, but also in ensuring that the client and all stakeholders have a common understanding of the adopted methodology and the individual requirements. The schedule can then be utilized in identifying and assessing risks and alternative strategies, as well as in monitoring progress and minimizing the impact of events or delays upon the project.
Managing a creative process requires thorough understanding, along with sensible controls that recognize the value of the creative output. Our service is flexible and responds to the particular needs of each client, practice or project that we are involved with.
