What We Do

The Cortland Build Difference

Our business model delivers a 360°, turnkey approach to build-to-rent living – at industry-leading costs. It is through our integrated capabilities and unique partnerships that we are able to streamline our processes and deliver projects more efficiently.

Cortland Build is located in 14 cities within six different US markets, including the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, Midwest, Mountain, and Texas.

General Contracting:
New Build and Renovation

We are committed to making our clients’ projects the best they can be, not only for involved stakeholders, but also for the neighborhood and residents who will call the community home. Our general contracting capabilities for new build and renovation include conceptual estimates, detailed due diligence, design assistance, value engineering, product selection and procurement, constructability analysis, scheduling, and quality control and safety.

Global Product Supply Chain, Logistics, and Warehousing

Headquartered in Shanghai, China, our fixtures and finishes manufacturer and supplier, CASK Industries, takes care of all our sourcing needs, eliminating a time-consuming process. CASK’s supply network uses the best information systems available to make sure all products are in the right place at the right time anywhere in the US. Warehouses throughout the US allow for a robust domestic storage capability and product transfer process – making product delivery faster and more efficient. Additionally, our material kitting services provide key efficiencies, reducing both storage and labor needs.

Product Design and Manufacturing

CASK Industries’ product designers create distinctive, high-end product concepts inspired by cutting-edge, global design, and consumer research trends. CASK’s vetting process secures the highest caliber manufacturer and production facilities and streamlines the sourcing process for clients – allowing the delivery of quality products at multifamily prices. Products include fixtures and finishes for kitchen, bath, lighting and fans, cabinetry, wall tile, vinyl flooring, window coverings, door hardware, granite and quartz countertops, and more.

VDC, BIM, and Technology Integration

Through our use of VDC, BIM, and construction technology, we bring a project to life, creating a digital model of information our clients can use to make more informed decisions throughout their project’s lifecycle. To support this process, our use of integrated construction and operations management systems promotes collaboration, coordination, and optimization in all our projects. In this environment, we don’t just increase productivity, improve quality, and reduce both risk and cost – we connect our clients to the future of their project.

Design and Architecture

Cortland Build’s spaces are designed with the same consideration and approach as creating a custom home or living space. Our design partner, Cortland Design, delivers a people-driven, locally tailored approach to both interior and architectural design, ensuring that design solutions are not only sophisticated and economical, but also memorable.
