Many contractors have estimating, contracts and closeout departments, but David E. Harvey Builders Inc. operates with a strategy where project managers do it all for the client. “What that does is provide clients with a single point of contact,” Project Manager Russell Niemann says.

That person stays with the client from the conceptual stage of their project to the final closeout. “We have a lot of repeat clients who claim that’s important to them,” he says.

The company has brought that approach to Market Square Tower, a 42-story luxury apartment tower in downtown Houston. “It’s a great project,” Niemann says, noting that the building will feature 463 living units and many amenities for tenants.

NAP LumberyardNAP continues to create unique urban spaces in the Southeast.

By Chris Kelsch

North American Properties (NAP) is certainly no stranger to the city of Tallahassee, Fla. The company has invested more than $150 million in large-scale, mixed-use developments in that city since 2012; specifically, in the Gaines Street District.  With its latest project, “The Lumberyard,” NAP hopes to build on its legacy of creating provocative urban spaces.

For the city of Tallahassee, the Gaines Street District remains extremely vital. In addition to serving as a conduit to the downtown business district and the state Capitol building, it connects two of Tallahassee’s universities: Florida A&M and Florida State University. Both of those universities have seen similar trends regarding the lifestyle choices of their students.

By Jim Harris

For most of its nearly 30-year history, Ingerman’s construction arm has worked exclusively on projects owned, developed and managed by the company’s other divisions. This experience prepared it to recently branch out its services to outside clients.

“We place a lot of emphasis on making sure we deliver the best finished product and put our owners first,” says Joe DiSalvo, director of field operations for the Collingswood, N.J.-based company. “We’re now applying the skills we’ve acquired building for ourselves to third-party projects, which has been a breath of fresh air for us.”

TAVO DevelopmentTAVO Development’s founder draws on his lifelong love of homebuilding in Westchester County, New York.

By Chris Petersen

TAVO Development President Steve Tavolacci has had a lifelong love affair with building homes, and the fourth-generation homebuilder says there’s nothing in the world he would rather be doing. From his days growing up surrounded by the craft to his first job sweeping floors on his father’s projects, Tavolacci says he’s never once considered doing anything else. “As a young kid, I knew this was always what I wanted to do,” he says. “I knew I had a passion for building and gave it all I had.”

TAVO Development’s clients have been the beneficiaries of that passion for more than 18 years now, as the company has built up a strong portfolio of luxury homes in Westchester County, New York. Tavolacci says the company’s reputation as one of the region’s most successful developers and homebuilders has come as a result of the company’s hard work, dedication and adherence to a strict but simple code of ethics.

The company concentrates on building spec homes in Westchester and Fairfield counties in New York, and its primary client base consists of families upgrading from their starter homes, according to Tavolacci. No matter what the finished product turns out to be, he says, every TAVO Development home is built on the idea that it must be someplace where he would want his family to live. Thanks to that philosophy, TAVO Development has built homes that it and its clients can be proud of.
