Owner Representation

What We Do

McGuire Development is Western New York’s leader in Owner Representation services. Hiring McGuire Development as your Owner Representative (OR) to assume the lead role on your project ensures its success from the very beginning. Our trusted and tested signature transparent process has repeatedly delivered savings to our clients of between 10%-40% of the project’s total costs.

What is an Owner’s Representative?

An Owner’s Representative is much more than a construction manager (CM). An OR assumes the lead role on the project and operates in the Owner’s best interest, lending our clients our unique expertise in obtaining successes in construction projects. As your OR, we work hand-in-hand with the project architect, answer critical questions from the Owner’s perspective, determine cost savings, and keep change orders to a minimum. We also pay special attention to cost avoidance measures and the bottom line because we, as experienced property managers, understand potential facilities issues and long-term maintenance expenses.

McGuire Development demands complete transparency and critical thinking from our partners, and we identify areas where potential cost savings may be obtained without compromising the project’s outcome. As a result, we are able to deliver the best projects to our clients.

Our experience from an owner, landlord, and tenant perspective allows for strategic planning and the anticipation of issues before they arise. As your OR, we allow you to remain focused on your organization and your project’s vision, while we take on the burden of monitoring the details.

Here's what our clients say

"The McGuire Development team’s depth of experience helped us through a complex building project in Orchard Park. McGuire was instrumental in all aspects of the project from site selection, and financial analysis through all construction phases and project completion. They helped us select other team members, vendors and sub-contractors and kept our 45,000 square foot building on track by meeting job milestones. Our McGuire team knows quality work and we could always rely on them to provide solid counsel to BMG’s project team."

Eileen Leary, Chief Operating Officer, Buffalo Medical Group

“By building relationships with my staff, McGuire Development was able to guide CSAT through the process of obtaining a sacred historical building in the region. Creating trust within the community was imperative to the success of the move and McGuire made every effort to help us achieve that, which allowed for a smooth transition into the neighborhood. McGuire took the time to listen to our needs and assisted us in achieving CSAT’s desired results, on time and on budget. Throughout my entire career, this was the first time in dealing with a development and property management company that I felt that we were true partners. Their leadership and expertise lead to results that CSAT is not only happy with now but will continue to be for years to come.”

J. Efrain Martinez, superintendent, Charter School for Applied Technologies

"University Pediatric Dentistry, P.C. (UPD) recently completed two simultaneous and very successful projects using McGuire Development Company, LLC as our representative. On the surface this may sound like just another business arrangement but it would understate the partnership and support McGuire provided. In addition to the design and construction expertise, McGuire worked with UPD and our vendors seamlessly. The construction of the facilities, being extraordinarily aggressive, was completed on time and on budget because there was trust and transparency on the team. Any issue could be brought up, discussed, and resolved. There were countless little things that McGuire did to help ease our work and assist our clients such as helping with 2-hour street parking, furniture, and signage. McGuire listened to our concerns and the brought back solutions."

Roseann McAnulty, Chief Operating Officer, University Pediatric Dentistry, P.C.

“As a not-for-profit organization, it was essential that Meals on Wheels for WNY work with a company that could deliver a quality project guided by financial responsibility. McGuire Development Company’s open-book process allowed us to understand all aspects of the project before our shovels hit the ground. It was because of this transparency that we were able to plan a more sophisticated facility with a full understanding of the true costs up-front.”

Benjamin A. Gair, III, former CEO, Meals on Wheels for Western New York

"I wanted to take a moment to write and thank you for the great response of your team when we lost power in our building. ... This degree of responsiveness and expertise is something we continue to expect and receive from the team at McGuire Development. Whether it is addressing long or short-term mechanical or maintenance issues, or determining innovative ways to serve our two building tenants, your staff is always available to help us."

David I. Herer, 1110 Main Street Associates, LLC

“We knew there was no way we could enter into a project of this scale with just any company. We wanted a firm that would be forthcoming about costs, space requirements, and deadlines throughout the process.”

Dr. Loubert Suddaby, neurosurgeon, Omni Pain and Wellness Center

“Working on the construction of a new state-of-the-art medical center has been a rewarding and positive experience. I enthusiastically recommend McGuire Development Company and praise them for their refreshing, open, and trustworthy business standards.”

Dr. Michael Landi, neurosurgeon, Brain and Spine Center

“Our level of trust and comfort with the professionals at McGuire Development Company is what ultimately guided us to pursue our professional vision for a state-of-the-art pediatric center. Their open communication on project costs, building designs, and return on investment gave us the realistic expectations we needed to make sound business decisions. We could not have found a better level of customer service or a better company to develop our Pediatric Center of Excellence."

Dr. Rebecca Molnar, Pediatric Center of Excellence at Wehrle Corporate Center

"We selected McGuire Development based on the integrity of the McGuire family and for their open and transparent cost process; there was complete transparency about design and attendant costs at all times before, during and at the completion of the construction process. All of the design professionals and contractors on site were at all times client-centric, professional, highly skilled, efficient, and interacted and communicated with our clients on a regular basis. For these reasons, our clients were very pleased with the cost, occupancy dates, quality, design, and appearance of their new facilities. The building management services provided by McGuire thereafter were equally exceptional."
