Project responsibility has been for projects from $1 million to $500 million, both retail and mixed-use. Estimates include both hard costs and soft costs. Many estimates are from preliminary work letters, lease outline drawings, or sketches to help the Owner/Developer decide how to structure a deal. When projects proceed services include helping to keep the project on schedule and on budget during the design phase. Cary has created estimating software specific to retail and mixed-use that facilitates creating reliable estimates quickly.
