About

The Multi-Family Housing Development (MHD) Department is comprised of professional project managers and project coordinators who are responsible for the development, design and financing of affordable multi-family housing projects.  Both, rehabilitated projects and new construction, projects are primarily designed to be for rent. MHD reports to the EVP/CFO.  Project managers lead the project delivery process, including all phases of finance, design, entitlement, permitting, project budgeting/accounting, and schedules. MHD is tasked with balancing and meeting the diverse needs and goals of PSHH and the Duncan Group (DG), including program, sustainability, aesthetics, risk, budget, and schedule.

MHD MISSION

  • Provide services with integrity and professionalism
  • Communicate effectively with internal/external stakeholders and consultants
  • Lead project teams to successful outcomes
  • Balance competing priorities of the various stakeholders
  • Approach project challenges with creativity, respecting the ideas of others
