Our expertise transcends compliance. Our collaboration builds communities.

Compliance and collaboration are not mutually exclusive. A strong compliance program is the result of proactive and deliberate engagement. From subcontractor outreach and community hiring fairs to training teams on the regulatory process and interfacing with lenders and subcontractors to ensure compliance is met—we engage in a thoughtful and collaborative way.

How We Work

Tandem partners with developers and general contractors in a visible and active way, to assist in navigating the construction process in a manner that streamlines community, regulatory, and political requirements. We foster collaborative interactions with elected officials, community stakeholders, and government agencies to ensure their requirements and expectations are built into the framework of the project plan. From there, we work closely with the development team to design an actionable plan that integrates the requirements and reasonable expectations of all project stakeholders.
