There was a time when constructing or renovating a building was generally a straightforward affair. Buy the land, find your equity, get your approval and build. While this outline remains, the simplicity of the good old days seems as dated as the typewriter. Today, even straightforward projects are complicated. Complex ownership entities, lengthy project review and multiple funding sources have become the norm, and connecting these pieces has become paramount to the success of a project. These complex arrangements have enabled many projects to be successful but require significant connecting and understanding amongst project team members.
