Keeping watch over client development for over thirty years...

In 1984, Development Resources, Inc., introduced the concept of independent owners representation in all physical aspects of the real estate process. We call this service real estate development consulting. Since then we have become the major independent development consultant and lender advisor in the industry; managing the lenders or users interests in more than fifteen million square feet of office, retail, parking structures and hotels, as well as hospitals, correctional facilities, resorts, and timeshare properties. We've also helped major corporate and business tenants build out over twelve million square feet of office space. Our project systems group is one of the largest independent consulting engineering groups in the United States providing program and building systems management including faculty support systems such as HVAC, Building Automation, Power Distribution, Lighting, Telephone/Data Networks, Life and Fire Safety, Plumbing, Fire Protection, Data, and Telecommunications Management and Cabling components. The mix of our management expertise and engineering analysis capabilities is unmatched.
