Project Feasibility Analysis
Years of experience in the construction industry and extensive and intimate knowledge of the Toronto real estate market allows us to create a robust and detailed feasibility study of said project. Our goal is to help the client make an informed judgment call on whether a project is doable using two specific criteria to judge feasibility: costs required and value to be delivered.
A well-designed study should offer a historical background of the business or project, a description of the product or service, accounting statements, details of operations and management, marketing research and policies, financial data, legal requirements and tax obligations. Generally, such studies precede technical development and project implementation.
Project management at Old Orchard Properties involves the planning, coordination, and control over the various tasks involved in construction projects, with time management and safety of the site being of the utmost of importance to us. Major building projects can and usually do evolve over time, so important skills such as strong communication, knowledge of the building process and problem solving are integral to our process. We work closely with our clients to keep the project on time and on budget, and work to building codes, plans and specs.
Financing for Property Development
Based on our years of experience and market knowledge, we recognize that obtaining a loan from a chartered bank is near to impossible as chartered banks cannot lend to develop land. Our 20 years of experience allows us to mediate the process between financial institution and the clients and includes all services needed to support to facilitate the loan.
Construction Cost Analysis
This type of cost analysis focuses on the physical construction costs and is used to justify a project on economic ground and for planning financing. At Old Orchard Properties, we can offer a comprehensive financial review of the project to determine if the budget accurately reflects the scope of work necessary to complete the project as designed.
At Old Orchard Properties, we offer full architectural services including design, preparation of construction documents and plans. We consider ourselves trusted advisors, blending diverse requirements and disciplines in a creative evolving process.
Planning for Property Development
The process for planning to develop a property can be daunting. At Old Orchard Properties, we can lessen the load. We can research local by-laws, create various options for development, coordinate consultants required in planning (architects, surveyors, engineers, etc), work within the city infrastructure, work with local ratepayers groups, community institutions such as schools and churches and manage the multitude of documents and processes required to fulfill the development.
