LANDMARK DEVELOPMENT & CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT LLC
LANDMARK DEVELOPMENT & CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT LLC ("LANDMARK") was established to accommodate the construction needs of its clients. It is a newly formed division of “LANDMARK”. It was established in 2006 to compliment the other services related to our company. The principals of the company are Craig Black, Construction Manager and Ryan Black, Finance Manager. Landmark is a member of the National Home Builders Association (NHBA) and the Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids (HBAGGR).
Craig Black is a licensed builder in the state of Michigan. He works in conjunction with the Architects, Vendors and Subcontractors in facilitating all aspects of the construction project. His responsibilities are to maintain the integrity of the project and to coordinate the construction process from design, to permits, to completion.
Ryan Black is also a licensed builder and is responsible for working with home owners, lenders, title insurance companies and the subcontractors/vendors to make sure all of the contracts, sworn statements, draw requests and lien waivers are accurate and compliant during the construction process. Ryan handles the estimating of projects as well as the relationships between home owner and lender in the event any change orders are necessitated.
In the home construction business, Landmark is currently positioned to be a custom and not a volume builder. Our intent is to work with our customer to determine the style and the finish of their home within the financial parameters they define. Each home that Landmark builds will be built with both the purchaser and the purchaser’s needs in mind. Landmark clients may select a plan from one that already exists or they may start from scratch with their choice of architect in order to build their home to their own specifications and needs.
