Properties, Inc. has substantial experience in all phases of construction project
management, and is one of the most comprehensive project management firms in New England. Over slightly more than 15 years, the company and its
principals have been responsible for project management and construction
supervision, both for its own account and for others, of over $1
billion of construction and development work. This work includes
public buildings; office buildings; commercial buildings; institutional
buildings; industrial buildings; medical facilities; mixed-use properties;
residential properties, including apartment buildings, elderly apartments,
condominiums, and luxury single family homes; sub-divisions; recreation
properties; and environmental projects. In 2002, Cofield
was retained as one of the project managers for the high profile
$800 million Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
Geographically, the work has taken the firm from the Mid-Atlantic
States to throughout New England. The firm has been involved in
new construction and substantial renovation work. It has also been
responsible for the construction project scheduling, supervision and installation of heavy equipment,
i.e. the installation of a 300-ton wheel press. On some assignments,
the work has included designing floor plans and presenting various
layout options for commercial properties. Cofield has worked for corporations, non-profit organizations, government
entities, real estate trusts, and individuals. It has pulled building
permits and has obtained approvals from local planning boards, conservation
authorities, and environmental agencies. The firm has hired architects,
lawyers, engineers, consultants, general contractors, and subcontractors
representing virtually every building trade. In a few selected instances,
Cofield has been a general contractor.
On various projects, Cofield has made presentations
to boards of directors, local community groups, and to many varied
committees. The firm has been involved in projects where it has had
virtually no reporting responsibility, except with a directive to
get the job done. In other assignments, the firm has had very structured
reporting responsibilities with strict documentation requirements.
The firm’s project assignments have been equally varied. Cofield
has been involved in assignments from project conception through
lease-up or move-in and in other assignments it has only been involved
in specific supervision tasks, such as construction supervision
for lending purposes. Our services and parnerships include:
• Construction Supervision services geared toward individual investors, real estate trusts, corporations, education and health care institutions, and financial institutions seeking expert advice, supervision, guidance, and management when building or renovating an important structure. Typically, its services commence in the planning stage and continue through lease-up, build-out, or sale. Occasionally, these services are designed for specific purposes, such as construction supervision for lenders.
• Real Estate Development Planning: Cofield assists individual investors, real estate trusts, and corporations which lack the expertise and/or other resources to plan and implement a specific real estate development strategy. More often than not, this work includes obtaining required approvals from local planning boards, conservation commissions, environmental commissions, and independent planning authorities, zoning boards, boards of health, historical commissions, and water related authorities.
