Too often, the construction process is considered a stand-alone phase of the broader real estate effort, leaving you susceptible to siloed decision making and tasked with managing complicated communication workflows across several specialized teams. This not only increases overall project risk but limits the breadth of solutions available to you when challenges arise.
