The build-to-suit approach offers an efficient means for a user to acquire a free-standing custom facility designed to meet its specific needs. Retail West Properties has established a long record of providing high quality products, relieving our clients from the risk, administrative effort, capital burden and complexity of commercial development.
We manage the entire project cycle:
- Site Selection
- Construction Management
- Tenant Turn-Over
Being a developer rather than a contractor, our services address the entire scope of a build-to-suit project, including the following:
- Preliminary budgeting and feasibility analysis.
- Site selection and acquisition.
- Project scheduling backed by our commitment to timely performance, allowing you to comfortably formulate your related business plans.
- Design and engineering, from preliminary schematics through detailed construction drawings.
- Value engineering during the design process to ensure the most cost-effective solution to your needs.
- Clear, concise and equitable lease documentation.
- Comprehensive final budgeting, ensuring that all costs are considered and eliminating subsequent surprises.
- Selection and qualification of contractors and sub-contractors.
- Competitive sub-contractor bidding and bid analysis.
- Project funding from our solid financial resources, eliminating the risk of financing delays and complications.
- Administration of the governmental approval and permitting process.
- Coordinated selection of finish materials and colors complementary with your objectives and preferences.
- Complete administration of all construction, from preliminary site clearing to final cleaning.
- For full-service leases, we provide in-house property management of your facility rather than relying on third-party management, ensuring responsive and professional service.
By focusing entirely on commercial real estate, we offer the experience and competence necessary to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience for our build-to-suit customers. We ensure that there are no unexpected costs, no permitting issues, no financing hurdles, no delays, no design omissions, no materials shortages, no unqualified contractors – in short, no problems.
We allow you to focus your time, energy and capital on running your business, secure in the knowledge that all of the details comprising the design, permitting, development and funding of your new facility are being professionally managed.
If you foresee ownership of your facility as a future goal, we can accommodate an exclusive purchase option as part of the lease documentation.
If you do not require a free-standing facility, we offer the same level of service as outlined above with respect to construction of custom space in our multi-tenant buildings.
