Development Services

TKE’s development services are primarily real estate-oriented, transactional in nature and opportunity based.  These services are customized to our clients’ needs and range from macro scale matters relative to community-wide needs to micro scale matters related to site specific development needs.  These services are offered on a “turn-key” or general basis (i.e., as an augmentation to staff) or on a selective basis (i.e., for specific project activities).  TKE’s development services staff are highly skilled and have over 80 years of combined experience in assisting local agencies with a broad array of high-priority projects.  In addition, TKE is uniquely able to offer its development services in combination with its comprehensive array of engineering-related services.  This unique combination of skill sets enables TKE to offer its clients an uncommon level of practical insight and solutions with respect to local government sponsored, initiated or assisted development.  The following summarizes the types of development services that TKE provides to its clients:
