Real Estate Development

GCI sees our role as one of responsibility rather than just a job or assignment, as the real estate development process is difficult to maneuver to make a dream into a reality. Real Estate Development has one of the largest numbers of technical moving parts that require managing seamlessly to deliver affordable housing on-budget and on-schedule.

 

Shelter may be the third in order of the Basic Necessities of Life, behind Food and Clothing, but is the receptacle for Food, Clothing and the People who need it most. GCI provides Real Estate Development Consulting Services to assist owners to build new or reuse multi-family dwelling shelters, with comprehensive industry technologies towards an orderly progression of development tasks.

Construction Management

Construction Management (CM) unlike the General Contractor (GC) method in the construction process is a compartmentalized management concept, whereas all functions are not contracted to one single construction firm as with a GC. Rather, the CM manages Prime General Contractors and Sub-contractors to produce a complete construction project, in many cases for a reduction in overall contractor overhead costs. GCI provides construction management and construction management consulting services to owners / developers to reduce the inherent risk of construction and have owners / developers retain control of each aspect of the project.

 

GCI staff and consulting group of professionals will usher owner / developers thru the maze of bidding, bonding, insurance, material purchases, manufacturing, local authority approvals, construction coordination, occupancy certificates, inspections, punch lists, and warranty period. The following service areas only differ as to specific tasks assigned:

  • Construction Management and Consulting
  • Project Management
  • Owner’s Representative

 

Trouble-Shooting of difficult projects

GCI can works seamlessly to augment our client’s staff as they operate on project sites as well as provide Trouble-Shooting of difficult projects, to shortcut Murphy’s Law, apply Organizational Development Concepts to redefine the scope and bring the project back on-schedule and on-budget.

 

Organizational Development

“the practice of changing people and organizations for positive growth.” It is a deliberately planned, organization-wide effort to increase an organization’s effectiveness or efficiency. GCI Organizational Development Specialist will focus on fine tuning and restructuring of the organization’s people and management principals to create a high performing company with high performing individuals and teams.

 

The process employs the Gestalt Management Concept and starts with:

  • Evaluation of the organization using several methods such as S.W.O.T. for the company,

and DISC Behavioral Profile for the staff and leadership.

  • Next, reshaping and/or fashioning a plan to meet the current challenges and set future goals at all levels of the organization.
  • Introduction of the plan to all stakeholders and confirmation of buy-in commitments.
  • Implementation of the plan and adjustments to meet short and long term goals.
  • Monitoring, compliance and assessment.

 

Organizational Development, typically referred to as OD or O & D is simply a tune-up and oil change, so to speak, for the organization to perform at its full potential.
