Not every project goes as expected. For a variety of reasons, projects stall or veer off schedule, costs escalate, unforeseen conditions bring into question whether a project can even be completed, communication ceases and work grinds to a halt. May Residential professionals will get projects moving again so that the contract can be successfully closed out before litigation becomes necessary.

Whether a project is being delivered under a traditional contract, design-build, CM at-risk, unit price or other arrangement, May Residential can quickly assemble our team of specialists, send them to any project location and identify the root cause of the issues stifling a troubled project. May Residential provides the leadership necessary to solve complicated problems. We are not afraid to deliver bad news; we are not afraid of putting our reputations behind the decisions we make; and most of all, we are responsive and sensitive to the intricacies of troubled projects.
