Development Management

The Development Management business unit coordinates the entire production process of development and construction management on behalf of institutional investors.
The development management activities, aimed at projects of various sizes, uses and complexity, ensure the creation of long-term value for investors and for the urban setting, thanks to an ongoing focus on the achievement of financial targets, the solid track record of the business unit, the use of innovative sustainable practices and the support of national and international partners specialized in the various fields.

The development management cycle is supported by the “Procurement team”, whose role is to optimize company procedures and standards in the bidding process for consultants/contractors and in procurement processes, and by the “Sustainability & Product Innovation” team, which provides the business unit with sustainability guidelines and verifies their application throughout the development process of the managed projects. The contribution of the function has a significant impact on the property, especially in terms of maintaining its value over time.

Over the last 10 years, COIMA REM has developed more than 1,850,000 square meters, spanning a total of approximately 50 real estate development and value-added projects.
