Lender’s Advisor: CM&D mitigates the risk on construction projects for the Capital Markets
With a history of industry knowledge and expertise, CM&D provides technical services to the capital markets. These include assessing projects which are seeking equity and monthly oversight of projects which have secured loans. Our services include a review of the background and experience of the developer, the overall development plan, the breadth of the development and construction team. We review the proposed construction schedule, associated budget and due diligence documents. Once funded, CM&D has project managers who also work in the industry, serving as the Lender’s Advisor, by monitoring the progress of construction and any critical path items which may delay the project or affect its cost.
CONSTRUCTION LOAN MONITORING
Once a project is funded, CM&D monitors the progress of construction through detailed reporting and photographic documentation. Payment applications are reviewed to assess the accuracy of the funding request each month and includes change orders and lien waiver reviews.

Project management issues can occur at any time during a construction project. Project goals may be inadequately defined. Poor communication, unrealistic deadlines as well as extending the project’s scope beyond the original objectives could stall a project and make it difficult to discover the root cause of the problem. CM&D can identify the key issues of distressed projects and provide the direction needed to make the critical decisions for the project. Once the go-forward strategy is established, we monitor and measure the progress of the project to ensure your goals are met through the completion of the project.
