The turnkey development solution

Always on-time & in-budget

Completing a commercial real estate development project through the planning, design and construction process is the ultimate juggling act. Our team has the expert knowledge and experience required to manage dozens of consultants, contractors, and vendors – ranging from architects and engineers to general contractors to specialty vendors – under the tightest of time constraints and budgets.

Our intimate knowledge of the development, design and construction process allows us to effectively evaluate budgets, schedules and minimize change orders to capitalize on large potential cost savings. In addition, you get to utilize our decades of experience that will help identify potential pit falls, suggest alternate methods or materials, and use our collective bargaining power to save you money.

Having completed hundreds of projects, ranging from ground-up, build-to-suit, core, and shell, to tenant improvement projects, there is no project too complex for our team to handle.

Behind you at every step

Planning to perfection

The pre-design and construction project development phase is the foundation to the success of any project. It is where visions begin to take shape, important decisions are made, and innovative solutions are explored. Our tested team approaches this phase with a keen eye on all aspects of a project and how they interconnect throughout each phase to eliminate surprises, maximize budgets, shorten schedules, and provide truly positive experiences to our clients.

Considering the significant risks that come with opening a new location and the importance of getting the design and construction of the venue right, SCGWest provides valuable insight and partners with owners to ensure a smooth process during the complete project cycle.

Taking the load off your team

Core competencies that streamline your opening

The vast number of tasks to complete before opening is mind-boggling. Securing and designing the space, setting budgets, schedules, and identifying long lead items represent just a few of the time-consuming responsibilities project teams must tackle.

Concept development and operations management may be among the owners’ core competencies, but few have expertise managing the design and construction tasks that come with opening a new location.

SCGWest’s team approach provides the expertise and capability in all of these facets. In fact, we are able to handle the entire design and construction process so corporate or franchise owners can focus on their core business.
