Independent 3rd party owner’s representative
WHAT WE DO
Project Planning & Management, Inc. (P2M) is a 3rd party owner’s representative project management firm and your key to a successful facility project.
As an extension of your organization we develop and help you evaluate real estate strategies, define your space needs, overall project budget and schedule. Then exclusively on your behalf, we manage the architect, the contractor or developer, the mover, furniture and other specialty vendors on the project. We even help you manage your own internal organization’s decisions to help the project stay on track.
Whether it’s writing Requests for Proposals (RFP’s), negotiating change orders, providing cost estimates, to managing your relocation, as your owners rep we take care of the details so you can take care of your business.
Our Core Business is Protecting You
As an owners rep project management firm, P2M does not design facilities or provide construction. We have no affiliation with architectural, construction or development companies. We have no other interests to represent except that of our clients.
We guide our clients through the design and construction process by helping them avoid risk in lease language, project planning, budgeting, scheduling, project management, furniture and relocation management.
P2M understands the nuances of how the design, construction and real estate industries work and put that knowledge to work for our clients. Simply put, our core business is the success of our client’s project. Period.
We Get Results
We know how to help you navigate the planning, design and construction process successfully. We also know how to help you navigate and manage internal corporate issues that will come up with your project. Our objective in project management is to anticipate project risks and guide you in avoiding or reducing them and our results speak for themselves.
JAC Products stated P2M “…representation resulted in cost savings of $1.1 million.”
NSF International stated P2M “…easily saved us over $800,000 in the process and allowed us to concentrate on our business.”
Tower Automotive stated “…our project was completed on time and 14% under budget. Clearly this performance fact speaks strongly of P2M’s capabilities.”
GKN Driveline stated “Without you and P2M our move would have been almost impossible…we would have been lost!”
We Have Proven Experience
P2M’s experience as an owner’s rep is without peer in southeastern Michigan. We have managed over $750,000,000.00 worth of project value for our clients in the past 22 years.
Our experience in facility types is varied and includes corporate office, technical centers, laboratories, manufacturing facilities, banking and credit unions, mixed use residential, hospitality and other project types including a 26 building camp for kids having serious health challenges.
We Do What We Say
With P2M be prepared for a level of responsiveness and professionalism you’re probably not used to receiving. We develop close professional relationships with our clients based on three things: responsiveness, commitment and performance.
Shearson Lehman once said: “Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions. And the actions which speak louder than the words. It is making the time when there is none. Coming through time after time after time, year after year after year.” At P2M we believe that, and act on it.
