Achieving the Granite Standard of Quality
Our multi-disciplined approach to development encompasses market analysis, site selection and planning, budgeting, building design, engineering and construction management. With extensive experience, proven methodology and commitment to excellence, we ensure each place we create achieves the Granite standard of quality which inspires our customers to do what they do best.
"From the very beginning of a project, we make design and construction decisions with our end user in mind. Our architects and contractors know that they can trust us to be fair and upfront."
–Aaron Bidne, Director of Development
Focusing on Value Creation
With our strong capital position and private ownership, we focus first on creating value in assets, enabling us to achieve strong returns and growth regardless of continuously changing markets. Having developed or acquired more than $3.6 billion in commercial real estate assets, Granite is positioned to continue to grow and strengthen the integrity of our brand.
“At the heart of things, Granite is really a value investor and our most opportunistic investing has been achieved through speculative development.”
- Bill Brown, Chief Investment Officer
