Given the complexity of the design and construction process, it is crucial that all projects follow standard procedures and that proper approvals are in place prior to committing to any costs, schedule & quality deliverables.

The Coughlan Group, Inc. (TCG) has developed and tested these procedures and implemented them on multiple projects. Working closely with a Real Estate Broker, TCG's focus is the planning, organizing, implementation and controlling of the office design, project management and construction. The objective in centralizing the process is to ensure consistency and provide a methodology that allows us to take advantage of previous project experiences.
