We are intimately familiar with the development landscape in the locations where we work.

Delivering on What's Most Important

Lifestyle center, power center, strip center, big box, core and shell, tenant improvements – whatever the scope, Harvey | Harvey-Cleary is the partner of choice for owners, developers, and tenants working in the retail sector. Clients select us because we deliver on what’s most important, accelerated scheduling in line with quality and cost goals.

We Know the Landscape

Unlike other types of projects, retail construction is highly influenced by surrounding development and market conditions. We are intimately familiar with the development landscape in the locations where we work. With this knowledge, we’re in a better position to lead discussions on budget prioritization and optimization over the life of the project. Even when projects span 15 years, as Sugar Land Towne Square did, Harvey helps clients stay on course to maximize their investment and reduce risk.

Partnerships with Architects and Engineers

We also understand the retail experience itself is evolving. As the customer buying journey factors more heavily in the retail setting, our clients are increasingly looking for ideas to improve their return on investment. Thanks to Harvey’s partnering spirit with architects and designers, our clients get an accurate budget as early as schematic design. Whether the project demands value pricing or no expense to be spared, clients have all the info needed to make decisions quickly and efficiently. Consider food retailers – is the experience intended to be a specialty gourmet market? A grocery store anchor? Or a food hall? We’ve built them all. Each is different, with different proformas. It’s our business to know how to build what your business needs in order to hit your financial target.

Tiltwall Construction

The one thing all retailers require is speed to market. Harvey meets the need in several ways. Experience is first and foremost. Clients repeatedly come to Harvey because we have a proven record of meeting aggressive schedules. We also leverage our buying power by getting and keeping the best subcontractors. They know what to expect when working with us and we know their capabilities and reliability. And Harvey is a leader in alternative construction techniques. David Harvey Sr. was a pioneer in tiltwall construction, delivering these buildings in the early 1970s. To date, Harvey has done tiltwall in every size imaginable including the more than 4 million SF Daikin Industries operations center. Tiltwall continues to be the most economical construction method for big-box applications and small centers alike.
