Construction Management

Development and construction management services are an essential part of Lincoln’s integrated real estate services. Because Lincoln’s development and construction management services are integrated with our other real estate services, we can create the highest value by involvement in the early stages of the project.

Our project management team has the ability to greatly influence the main drivers of cost, strategy, scope and schedule. The earlier Lincoln’s project management team is involved, the better the effect on the bottom line.

Lincoln has performed with excellence in a wide range of projects including: office buildings; corporate campuses; interior/tenant finish; historic renovations; research and development facilities; capital improvements; and speculative and build-to-suit office, retail and industrial projects and developments. Nationally, development and construction has been our core business for more than 35 years. We continually refine our project delivery methods and benchmarks to ensure our clients receive the highest level and quality of service at the most competitive price.
