DeVon J. Prioleau
Lead Consultant

DeVon J. Prioleau, a native New Yorker, founded PRI-O-LEAU Development Group LLC in 2007 which sought to uniquely combine his two areas of formal study – balancing the vision and creativity of the architect with the operational and practical perspectives of the developer.

During the early stages of his career, Prioleau was responsible for the architectural and development standards of both domestic and international projects; assisting corporate owners and institutional investors in the design and construction of their multi-billion dollar real estate portfolios. His ability to provide in-house planning, design, construction and management services from a single source has proven to add value for his clients. Now an independent consultant, Prioleau uses the same skill-set he acquired and honed in the corporate sector to help a variety of local municipalities, profit and not-for-profit entities capitalize on their business opportunities.

Delivery from concept to completion

Scope, Budget, Schedule
Scope: Assess the highest and best use for an appropriate project
Budget: Validate the sources and uses to ensure project feasibility
Schedule: Coordinate phasing of project for successful completion of milestones

The relationships between these elements differ in every project and determine the kinds of issues clients typically encounter. At PDG, we serve as administrators to facilitate resolution of these three naturally conflicting areas. With our full-service capabilities we are able to provide project-specific analyses in each of the life-cycle areas.
