WHO WE ARE
Kincaid Building Group has been producing successful urban infill, commercial office, multi-family, mixed-use, adaptive re-use, historic, Brownfield, hospitality and neighborhood revitalization development and construction projects across the State of Michigan since 2005.
What we learned early on was that the “solutions” many in the industry relied on consistently were not resulting in successful projects. Seeking to fulfill our foremost core value — “Serve the client above all else” — we sought out a better way.
Recognizing the need to reimagine the entire experience, we developed a proven process that produces successful real estate development and construction projects and created a transformational company that is dedicated to its implementation. We call our proven process “Collaborate, Create, and Succeed.” Our team-oriented, trust-based, collaborative and consistent approach creates projects that are successful.
Our singular and passionate focus is to partner with business owners, real estate developers and real estate investors to produce successful real estate developments for their businesses and investments. This is our niche, our passion and the reason for our existence.
Leadership is our service. We lead by navigating our clients and the entire project team through all of the steps beginning as soon as a client has an idea for their project. We know how each piece of the project fits together, when team members need to be engaged and where the project needs to come together to be successful.
That includes project scope of work; means and methods; staging; phasing; pricing; rent rates; financing; municipal approvals; zoning changes; special use permitting; trade contractor inputs and insights; government grants; incentive requests; tax credits; real estate proformas and everything in between. The puzzle is not complete unless every piece is in place. We lead all the parts of a project and put it together seamlessly. Our team is well versed in several different types of real estate development and construction disciplines.
We get to know your project vision, goals, objectives, budget, design ideas and schedule. Based on the needs of the project, we will assemble the best team for your project’s success. We have a process that objectively determines how we select and when we select the right team members for the project.
We have relationships with architects, engineers, environmental consultants, real estate brokers, attorneys, bankers, bridge lenders, appraisers, consultants, specialty lenders, SBA lenders, city officials and economic development agencies across the State of Michigan. We introduce our clients into those relationships and integrate them into the project to ensure success.
In an industry filled with busted budgets, blown schedules, failed partnerships and unsatisfied owners, we found a better way. We challenged the status quo and have taken on a bold, creative approach to meet the unique challenges and opportunities of real estate development and construction services.
