ALTERNATIVES ANALYSIS, RIGHT OF WAY RISK ASSESSMENT AND MITIGATION

Our team of experts employs cutting-edge methodologies to assess and mitigate risks associated with the right of way needs of your program. We've reduced right of way costs by hundreds of millions of dollars over the last 15 years and believe that helping an agency build the public trust begins with reducing property impacts to whatever extent possible.

COST ESTIMATION

Over two decades of right of way cost estimating throughout the country has revealed that 60% or more of right of way cost estimates significantly under estimate acquisition and relocation costs.  Indeed, we've seen public works programs canceled or delayed entirely because of flawed and underestimated right of way budget programming.  We're here not only to get it right, but to train your project team to look for key valuation indicators for future projects!

PRE-AUDIT FILE REVIEW

Having seen multiple agencies lose their eminent domain authority because of right of way acquisition procedural blunders, it's understandable that Pre-Audit File Reviews are becoming a necessity. Having a second set of eyes is critical and our team zeros in on exactly the right areas to ensure you're in compliance. 

PROGRAM DELIVERY

Valuing and purchasing property, relocating owners, tenants and businesses: it's what we do. We train our people to have the disciplined mind of an engineer, the strategic approach of an attorney, and the soft touch befitting the role of a public servant. 

 

Public Works projects can often be quite disruptive to the constituency they serve, the right team should not only ensure compliance and solve problems, but aim towards the highest standards of engagement with the public at large.

FEDERAL COMPLIANCE STRATEGIES

Compliance begins not only with drafting correct conveyance document templates, providing noticing and following procedures, but also giving your agency regulatory tools to reduce cost and schedule risks discovered in your program.  Having formally taught over 100 leading engineering firms and public agencies on compliance strategies, our team comes ready to build out creative, compliant solutions.

SCHEDULE REDUCING STRATEGIES

Federal funding obligations need to be met and right of way acquisitions with the public, a local utility or an affected railroad, is often the critical path.  This is our specialty - finding a way through the critical path to ensure funding and get your project to ad.
