Our Services

Property Condition Assessment (PSA)

PCA's encompass commercial building inspections of the building  structure systems and grounds of a commercial real estate site. Our professionals utilize ASTM 2018-15,"Standard Guide for Property Condition Assessments Baseline Property Condition Assessment Process" standard to evaluate the current construction conditions observed. Others stop once they've met the "standard", but the Neal Development Group is getting started once the ASTM standard is met. Our clients count on us to reveal every physical defect and major issue that could potentially impact an acquisition. We report from the field and there is no time delay in communicating critical information that could effect a transaction. 

Construction Monitoring/Bank Draws

Construction Monitoring/Bank Draws are site inspections that are performed in conjunction with the funding draws on a ground up or remodeled property. The draws are performed after a General Contractor or Developer requests funding at each phase of the project. The site visit inspection is put into place to monitor the project to ensure that the draw amount requested is in line with the construction performed on the site as of the date of the draw request and the construction performed is being performed in a workman like manner

Owner's Representative

An owner's Representative advises and represents an owner/developer in areas of planning, acquisition, pre-construction, construction monitoring and the post construction process. These areas include site preperation, design, cost estimates, bid packaging preparation and evaluation for safety, budget adherence, construction oversight/field supervision and cost control. 

Construction Estimating

A construction estimation begins with a site visit by a team member of our professional staff. The construction estimate entails the analysis of the planned or proposed project to determine an estimation of the construction costs, time line and plan. 

Cost to Competition Analysis

These analyses are warrented when construction is delayed or halted. The Cost to Completion Analysis consists of an inspection of a project,its progress and current conditions. We then determine the remaining costs for completion of the project.
