Leasing and Brokerage
Cymbal Development provides third-party general contractor and construction management services for a host of its South Florida clients. We have completed dozens of construction projects for our retail, restaurant, office, residential, and hotel clients.
We offer extensive pre-construction, value engineering, and design-build services to ensure that your project is completed on time and on budget.
Our company promotes a ‘hands-on’ team environment. The people who estimate the project in the early stages stay with the project through construction and closeout. They are a key part to our management team. This encourages accountability and reduces time wasted resolving design and budget issues later on.
Once a project is under construction, we will assign you a highly skilled and professional project manager who will remain with the project through completion. That project manager will also be a licensed architect and general contractor, ensuring a thorough understanding of your construction needs and timeline. Our project manager will be on-site and will be your main point of contact through project completion.
Our company’s accessibility, responsiveness, and attention to detail have earned us a reputation of having integrity, passion for our work, and a “can do” attitude. This attitude helps foster a partnering approach that benefits all members of a project team – owner, owner’s representative, architect, engineers, and other consultants. This unique approach has consistently resulted in our firm’s ability to exceed client expectations.
