Team discussing project floor plans

About Us

Established in the heart of an economic recession in 2010, PH&C developed a name and solid reputation by helping our clients successfully complete a variety of new development and re-development projects. 

PH&C creates value by understanding project costs and construction risks, and by guiding the team to the most efficient, constructible designs for projects ranging from residential neighborhoods, commercial developments to institutional infrastructure upgrades.

PH&C’s experienced land development team allows Land Owners to gain control of the key aspect of most every project: managing the planning, design, procurement and construction of the on and off-site improvements, directly and efficiently, with our in-house staff, only hiring commercial General Contractors for actual building construction, saving costly mark up fees. 

We manage projects for a wide range of clients that require careful planning and meticulous execution.  PH&C has established trusted relationships with developers, land owners, business owners, government agencies, and development consulting firms by providing integrated commercial property assessment, design management, pre-construction, and construction management services.
