We partner with both commercial and residential real estate developers, allowing them to differentiate their projects and add value to their developments.  Developers often approach us with an idea for an environmentally positive development and a need for an overall vision and plan.

Future Proof Helps Developers through:


We work with developers to create a compelling vision for their projects that include a marketing edge and a marketing niche to ensure return on investment.  In addition we also set up performance goals and create a strategy for implementation, which often includes the creation of the Owner’s Program of Requirements.

Team Building / Vendor Selection

We also help developers choose and hire design and construction teams that are qualified to realize the project vision.  Once the team is in place, we lead orient and educate them on project opportunities and goals.

Cost Analysis

Throughout the project, we provide ongoing cost benefit analysis to enable the design team to meet project goals cost effectively.

Community Outreach

We also handle community and stakeholder outreach where we develop partnerships to take advantage of any community resources that may be available.

Identify Funding Opportunities

If required, we can also help locate funding resources through grant writing and other programs.

Project Management / Representation

Throughout the project, we act as the owner’s sustainability representative to ensure that the chosen team delivers on the goals and vision established at the start of the project.

Brand Strategy

Finally we work with the developers PR and/or marketing team to fully capture the value of the project in marketing messaging.
