Xpera Group, a San Diego-based construction consulting firm, has announced the formation of Xpera CM, a new construction and project management firm under the leadership of President David Pallinger. The new firm provides full-service project management services to protect owners’ interests through every phase of a project.
The firm is already hard at work, representing a private client for the design and construction of a major new four-star resort, including a hotel tower, ballroom, meeting rooms, and extensive resort pool and grounds.
In addition to this noteworthy project, Xpera CM is representing a San Diego development team in the due diligence and development for a major residential real estate project in San Diego County. The project includes 156 gated estate lots adjacent to a private country club with a Ted Robinson-designed golf course, new world-class 40,000-square-foot clubhouse and resort pool facility.
Pallinger has more than 25 years of experience representing owners throughout the United States for a variety of commercial, civic, real estate development and hospitality projects. Ted Bumgardner, president of Xpera Group, is providing strategic support to Xpera CM as chairman of the new company.
“Xpera CM is built upon the philosophy that empathy is the key to achieving client goals efficiently and cost-effectively,” Bumgardner said. “When challenges arise, and they always do in this business, our empathic, client-focused view, combined with a broad base of construction knowledge and experience, makes all the difference in the success of a project.”
Xpera CM is a natural extension of the Xpera brand, a name inspired by the Latin word expertus (expert), which Bumgardner used when founding Xpera Group in 2009, at the depths of the economic downturn.
Originally focused entirely on construction forensics, Xpera Group has evolved over the last five years through acquisitions and recruitment of a variety of high-level industry experts to meet the needs of the changing marketplace. The firm now offers a full range of construction consulting services, including quality assurance, building envelope and mechanical systems commissioning, construction forensics and expert witness services, property condition assessment, property loss evaluation and construction claims.
The firm also has an economic and market research division under the leadership of noted real estate economist, Alan Nevin, for a unique and far more comprehensive approach to clients’ real estate and construction needs.
Xpera Group continues to experience rapid growth year over year. To date, the firm has connected 50 highly trained construction experts to more than 340 client companies on more than 1,600 assignments.
Xpera Group and Xpera CM serve clients in the western United States from offices in San Diego and Los Angeles. More information can be found at xperacm.com and xperagroup.com or by calling (858) 436-7770.
