Project Delivery - Lease Leaseback

Project Owners typically manage the financing of the project. In certain circumstances this does not always make sense, which is where Lease-Leaseback or Build-to-Suit project delivery methods come in.

The project may be managed like a Design-Build, where both design and construction are integrated or like CM at Risk, where the Project Owner retains direct control over the design. 

CM at Risk: Project Delivery Methods - Definition of Lease Leaseback and pros and cons.

The difference is that the contractor is partnered with someone who provides the financing for the project and a separate entity is formed for the specific purpose of building the project then leasing it back to the customer.  

The lease may be structured over different time periods and at the end of the lease term, the customer may or may not own the building.

This method allows the Project “Owner” the opportunity to get a facility that suits their very specific needs with no capital outlay up front. Sometimes, the land is owned by the customer and the bare land is leased to the contractor for $1 and then the completed building is leased back to the customer.

Coachability and Capability Matrix
Sustainable growth over time in your career and as a company has to do with being coachable and capable. Optimum growth occurs when we are stretching ourselves and others just beyond our current capabilities and then developing the needed capabilities.
Using a Vision to Create Desire and Context for Tasks
There is a whole lot of work involved in building projects and building a construction company. It is easy to get mired down in endless to-do lists, processes, and problems. The thing that holds this all together and accelerates performance is the vision.
Coaching and "GPS Feedback"
Contracting is a business where operational excellence is a major factor in winning. Project success which we all know is very different than “winning” the project depends on thousands of details over many months executed well.
