The Highland Property Construction, Inc. Team

Highland specializes in the renovation of apartment complexes. We believe in using a team approach to bring all possible resources to each project that we do. We work with the development team (owner's reps, architects, funding agencies, municipalities, etc.) to ensure that work is done to the highest standards. We pride ourselves in finding ways to reduce construction related stress on the residents, management and the development team. The way we manage our rehabilitation work, most projects can be completed very efficiently with the residents in place without having to relocate to reduce resident stress and development cost.

The Highland team works together from the start of due diligence through construction and then to close-out. We make it happen!
