What has become the typical engagement between Van Acker and the Client begins with a project's earliest development, which can include property purchase. Van Acker is active in the early assessments and feasibility studies to define whether a property will meet a client’s goals both financially and logistically.
Our thorough process of property due diligence is multifaceted. Deed related study for the purchase agreement clarifies any civil or assessor related issues. Survey determination for property infrastructure affords an understanding of cost and impact for utility services, upgrades or the need for new egress. Early entitlement determinations are reviewed concerning the planning process; this considers the impact of town, city, county, and state planning regulations with a focus on historic evaluation. To establish buildable options based on early design program criteria, we provide a cursory review of local building rules, regulation, and code.
Our efforts — whether we are acting unaided or engaged with an owners rep and/or design professionals — have proved successful in eliminating risk, assisting with purchase negotiations, and creating a good development slate for the Client and Design Development Team.
