Development Services

URS provides multi-family development firms and merchant builders with seamless utility management that eliminates cost overruns, schedule delays, saves money and reduces workload for project managers.

From conceptual design until an asset is turned over to property management/owner, we streamline all aspects of utility services throughout the development process to maximize net operating income.

  • Pre-Construction
  • Construction Management
  • Construction to Operations Management
  • Initial Operations

We provide a specialized point person to serve as an expert utility administrator:


  • Manage all utility related issues including:
    • Set up of temporary accounts
    • Demolition of abandoned utilities
    • Proper set up of address and ownership
    • Secure best pricing for gas and electric
    • Address all odd one-offs that occur
  • Dry utility coordination.
  • Free up staff to focus on their core competencies:
    • Eliminate hours of wasted hold time with utility districts getting deposits, establishing account setups, inspection times, account transfers, etc.
  • Eliminate the confusion about which accounts have been set up, where they are being paid and the discontinuation of services which can result.
  • Coordinate all schedules for setups, service calls, inspections and miscellaneous project needs to pre-empt or avoid delays (electric, gas, water/sewer, telecom).
  • Legal compliance analysis to ensure all billing is set up within the guidelines of state and local jurisdictions.
  • Analysis of utility costs for each community and provide the optimal billing set up to the billing vendor.

We ensure a seamless transition from construction through property turnover.
