About Us

Partners Development is a full service, diversified real estate firm specializing in comprehensive facilities planning, design, financing, construction and development. With almost forty years experience in our industry, we have developed over $1 billion worth of space and 15 million square feet. Partners has completed more than 100 projects in the Americas and Europe, specializing in four distinct markets: Commercial, Education, Industrial and Residential.

Company Overview

For more than 35 years, Partners has served clients across 18 states and five countries. From financing to completion, we are your company’s personal advocate to ensure projects are completed on time, on budget and look and function exactly to your specifications.

Our relationships with our clients extend beyond the span of a project. We help you strategically plan for your company’s future and become a trusted partner throughout your company’s growth.

One Source

Partners One Source enables your leadership to concentrate on their primary responsibilities rather than daily oversight of a complex development project. The collaborative process may include as many project stakeholders as desired, and each phase is meticulously planned and executed; progression to the next phase is NOT permitted until consensus is achieved and written approval is provided. Seamless coordination and supervision of architectural, engineering and construction services mean we do the work.

Our Phased Approach

We have honed our turnkey process over 35 years. We do it all, from facilities planning to financing to development. Throughout our phased approach, we meet with clients regularly and oversee every detail of your project from concept to completion. When you partner with us, you get these benefits:

We help identify your company’s needs and how the project best can address those objectives and position your company for growth. We assist with all areas of planning, including architect and contractor selection and bidding process management.

We provide a crucial link between facility planning and finance. Our corporate finance professionals evaluate operating costs, risks and potential return on investment to offer creative and strategic financing solutions that best meet our client’s business goals.

In partnership with a team of architects and engineers, we incorporate client vision, budget and input from key stakeholders to produce renderings, plans and specifications. Once designs are finalized, we deliver a master schedule and construction estimate with a guarantee to deliver a high-quality product on time and on budget.

We handle commercial, industrial, residential and educational campus construction via a variety of delivery models, from traditional contracting to design-build strategies. Our project managers are experienced in all construction-related fields and update clients on budgets and schedules at important junctures for a cost-efficient process.
