Development Management

Development Management

We provide owner’s representation and construction management services to Owners for the design and construction of their capital projects. As the owner’s representative, EDC manages the total physical development of the project from preconstruction through final occupancy. While EDC provides the manpower to organize and direct the project, the Owner remains the decision-maker. EDC’s Development Management Services include:

• Strategic Planning
• Programming & Feasibility
• Site Analysis
• Development Budgets
• Development Schedules
• Consultant Selection
• Master Planning
• Design Management
• Site Plan Coordination
• Construction Bidding
• Contract Negotiation
• Construction Management
• Cost Accounting
• Occupancy


The success of every project begins at the early planning stages. With an extensive database of costs for a variety of end users and a national network of subcontractors, our preconstruction department can provide detailed budget estimates, schedules, as well as design and construction reviews with the project team. We partner with the Owner and design team to ensure a stable foundation is established before proceeding to construction. EDC’s Preconstruction Services include:

• Site Visits

Predicting and anticipating construction problems is the key to successful construction management. We take a proactive approach in managing the schedule on a daily basis, and addressing potential concerns before they become critical. We continually communicate with the Owner and design team to direct the construction to a successful completion. EDC’s Construction Management Services include:

Project Close-Out

EDC’s dedicated staff ensures that the project close-out is clean, thorough, and completed in a timely manner. EDC’s project team works with every subcontractor and supplier to ensure the proper documentation and information is assembled and distributed in accordance with the Owner’s specific requirements. EDC’s Project Close-Out Services include:
