A similar project from client’s portfolio as this effort was pre-construction.
Residential Infill Development
Del Mar Mesa 4
DJR was hired by a high-end custom home builder on a raw infill land project consisting of 4 one-acre estate lots in the Del Mar Mesa area of San Diego. The project is another example of a successful builder with a number of ongoing projects bringing in DJR to assess, manage, and create value out of a property with significant potential issues in the “horizontal” development and construction in which such a home builder has less expertise than DJR.
DJR’s effort consisted of a comprehensive Costing Analysis Report for the land development work including earthwork analysis, quantities estimates, and cost estimates, as well as consulting during the grading and improvement plan design process. DJR’s analysis and report to the team was in the form of its integrated Land Development Program and Budget.
The builder took it from here, although the next phase would typically involve project management services during final engineering, grading, and site work consisting of coordination and management of consultants, contractors, and public agency issues during completion of the subdivision improvements.
