GDM takes the project as a coherent group of assembled and complementary phases which must be led towards the fulfilment of one objective. In general (because it depends on the type of orders and their specific needs) these phases are:
Preliminary design; Project;
Assessment, execution, monitoring, closure.
In today’s contemporary context, which makes the processes undergo fast and turbulent mutations constantly, the project teams have to add to each phase (as well as creativity, technical solvency and the necessary experience) a well-trained ability to adapt themselves to these changing and stressful scenarios.
At the same time, the complexity of the specialties which participate in each step makes it necessary to have a professional project leader used to working in the interrelation among different skills and disciplines.
GDM has developed and incorporated professionals to cover each and every of these steps and assemble with each other a solid group with:
Product developers, to diagnose and solve the emergent challenges of the design programmes which are becoming more complex, uncertain and unsettling, who play a key role in the interaction with those who will participate in the development;
Process leaders able to efficiently assemble the commitment of the different actors that frequently participate with dissimilar interests;
Technicians and specialists from different disciplines which arise from the complexity of the programmes and the specificity of each discipline;
Experienced professionals in the implementation of monitoring and control methods.
Just as in GDM we understand the concept of PROJECT as a process in which its phases assemble and complement each other in order to achieve a specific objective, we understand Site Management as a phase in such process which must be assembled with the preceding and subsequent ones.
A quality that must hold the management in these processes is a cohesion agent who leads the actors towards the result. The key in this task is in the “linking anticipation” principle. This principle defines the activity (and materialization) of the projects as a linking process of reciprocal interdependencies.
At GDM our Site Managers are professionals linked to the initial conception of the project, early involved in its development.
Therefore, SITE MANAGEMENT is a phase of that process in which different actors participate: designers and planners, consultants from different areas of engineering, the client’s representative teams, the appointed PM (if there is one), the different contractors, the main company appointed in the construction site engagement, the administrative control agents and the interested community agents.
The development of new real estate ventures is an activity which has reached the interest of developing companies over the last few decades, with important fluctuations which depend on the social mood, the social-economic conditions in the surroundings of the place where they are developed, and the more or less favourable conditions of the business framework in question.
In all cases, these distinctive features will always be determined by the ontemporaneous feature that, inherent to its condition, establishes uncertainty and great mobility levels.
The decision of the circumstances in which a development will take place depends on the need of an objective analysis. Such analysis requires a field work with thorough revision, knowledge of the site and acting tendencies, a vast delimitation of the economic forces that influence it and precise knowledge of the competitive offer. Finally, it requires a clear conscience and a correct characterization of the need of the potential demand and determination of the prospective product to be designed.
GDM offers its clients its professional service for the determination and analysis of:
Physical potential of the surroundings of the venture establishment;
Revision of the stock of the competitive offer;
Valuation of the land, in relation to its physical circumstances, location, connectivity, growth potential, short and medium-term tendencies;
Valuation in relation to the direct and potential competitive offer;
Feasibility in relation to the land and its suitability for building, as well as its mixture and functional combinations possibilities;
Determination of investment and profitability in relation to the sales speed, the future value and return (NPV/IRR).
