Project Consulting: Our expertise can ensure that you make the right investment. Through our long involvement with planning and zoning issues and our affiliation with SVN Delaware, LLC, a commercial real estate advisory firm, Whayland has special expertise in site identification, analysis and selection. We can also walk you through land use processes for comprehensive planning, zoning changes, conditional uses, special exceptions and compliance issues. Given the high cost and time involved in creating a new site plan and building project, you may wish to consider an existing building that can be re-purposed to your needs. We encourage you to allow us to search the market for an existing facility that may suit your needs.
Constructability Review: Construction review with Whayland allows for a building design that reflects your requirements, at a price that you can afford. It has been said that "money is saved during design - once construction begins, money can only be spent." While we don't fully agree with the old adage, it certainly is easier, faster and less costly to save money during design than after the project has been started, which is why we encourage ongoing constructability review throughout the design process. Making Whayland part of the project team early in the design process provides the owner and designers with current advice on pricing and availability of construction materials, methods and techniques, a comparative analysis of the alternatives and preliminary cost estimates. We also provide valuable input on permit acquisition and project scheduling and assist the design professionals in solving building problems while they are still on paper. This ensures that you get a building design that reflects your requirements, at a price you can afford.
Owner Advocacy: Whayland can represent your interests to all other parties involved in your project, from Realtors and designers to permit agencies and equipment suppliers. When we act as the owner's advocate, we represent your interests to all other parties involved in your project including: Realtors, designers, permit agencies, general contractors, construction managers, furnishing suppliers and equipment suppliers. This service is especially useful if you are contemplating a build-to-suit project where certain service providers are pre-selected, or any situation where you wish to have a completely independent representative.
