Is it worth a developer to create your own general contractor? If you have a lot of money. You chose to dedicate her life to devote himself to development and construction. You is a billion dollars, and you thought, 'Yeah, I'll just do it - buy land and build. "Then theoretically possible. But today, with the staff and the content structure problems, and therefore, there can be an embarrassing situation when one of the lines will fall apart.
In the history of our country, there are examples inability professionally by several directions. Such large companies as "Cocktail", "OK», «Spar» and others started in parallel with the food retail is engaged in development: buy land, borrow, hire people and then try to construct a building for themselves. The end result is they are distracted from the primary business, retail chain, hung a huge anchor in the form of service credits for development, plus the crisis has played a cruel joke with them. Today, real estate development company of almost all of these unprofitable. Although, if you separate the real estate development of the retail sector, the retail is a plus, and they would be able to further develop the food retail. But, nevertheless, they are pictured castles in the air and thought that all this grand volume can be realized. But alas, everyone should do their job.
Can I give you an example of effective integration of these two fundamental roles to be combined? The only company that today in Ukraine there was growth of customer service in the major general contractors with elements of development, is the "CAS", and that this is a unique situation: the confluence of political, financial, and personal qualities. The example today is very different. God forbid we have to go to such a situation.
