The good news is we've been on both sides of project disbursements. The bad news is that even though we know the process, bad projects still happen. The same techniques we used as contractors and owner's reps helps us pick apart every element of a closing package, identify budget questions and analyze monthly draw requests. In this space, there really are no shortcuts.
Thorough reviews help protect everyone and the last thing anyone needs is a project that struggles financially. By treating investors' money like our own, we scour a project with the other professionals to look for sequencing errors in schedules, quality gaps in execution, performance risk, and financial concerns. And our reports make the important things clear without sacrificing depth.
