Uncategorized | January 12, 2010 by Tadhg O'Connor | Comments Off { Edit } Welcome to the LePatner Blog. Its purpose is to keep our clients, friends and colleagues informed on construction, real estate, and business matters of interest. We will post updates on a regular basis. We will also link articles and information that may be useful in understanding and anticipating real estate and construction trends, risks, concerns and strategic planning.

Our focus and expertise is guarding against construction cost overruns and ensuring that projects are built on time and on budget. Often times, projects can soar 20, 30, 50% or more over budget, and we see this reported regularly in local and national publications. Our blog links to these publications, highlights the fundamental flaws in the construction process and paves the way for change during times that demand cost certainty in capital construction projects.
