Owner Services for Large, Complex, and Socially Important Construction

MOCA Services is a full-service provider for Owners in the design and construction industry. Our battle-tested programs help clients make their projects successful from project ideation, through construction, and to occupancy. MOCA Services is relationship-focused and provides solutions for on-time, on-budget, and on-scope delivery of large, complex , and socially important projects.

The Problem

Over 90% of projects above $250 million are over budget, beyond schedule, and are not delivering on project requirements. Why?

The Solution

Through extensive industry experience, our team knows the root causes of why projects get off track. Before spending money on design and construction, we develop a shared vision with the client’s key stakeholders and ensure that the vision is grounded in a realistic, comprehensive program plan. That’s why 90% of our projects are on budget, on schedule, and improve quality or scope.  


MOCA Services provides a comprehensive array of expert Government, Institutional, and Commercial construction Owner’s services. These services include Owner’s Representative, Cost Management, Schedule Management, Planning and Programming, and Facility Condition Assessment (FCA). With MOCA Services, Owners can be certain of effective, profitable, and end-to-end project execution.

Owner’s Representative

As an Owner’s Representative, we represent you and are 100% committed to supporting you as program and project managers. We provide a broad range of program and project management services throughout the project to include project initiation, pre-design, design, construction and transition, occupancy, and warranty services.

When issues arise, we focus on protecting and looking out for the well-being of you and your project. Our Owner’s Representative service will reduce costs, maintain the schedule, minimize change orders, and ensure your expectations are met.  

Cost Management

Cost management comprises project assessment and evaluation, projecting specific project cost estimates, and evaluating previous or past project data. At MOCA Services, we deliver cost management services efficiently and accurately. We realize that effective cost management is a team responsibility, whereby all team members are continuously aware of the overall financial status of a project. From project inception to completion, MOCA Services’ involvement does not cease until the team completes the final execution of the project.

Schedule Management

Schedule management requires the establishment of policies, procedures, and documentation for developing, managing, maintaining, and controlling project schedules. Our team understands this methodology and has developed the appropriate tools and models to measure, gauge, adjust, and report on activities and the associated variances within the scope of complex projects.

Planning and Programming

Because the goal of our facility planning and programming professionals is to understand our client’s project objectives, we use a “Quick Start Plan” to establish preliminary project scope, phasing, budget, and schedule. The “Quick Start Plan” is designed around the development of highly intensive and collaborative workshops that help stakeholders identify their needs and items that they care about most. These focused workshops reveal the crucial programming and design elements that make a project successful.

Facility Condition Assessment (FCA)

Better decisions are made when there is a quick, simple, and effective way to inventory, estimate, track, and report facility deficiencies. MOCAPlan®, a web-based software product, provides clear, understandable, and visible information that can help justify requests for funding and become the foundation for a capital renewal program. The information is organized for better visibility into your capital program.

Our Success

MOCA Services manages billions of dollars in construction projects annually around the world. For companies and organizations to be successful, they must have exceptional leadership. At MOCA Services, our industry leaders play a critical role in the successful management and completion of every project.

Murray City Hall

Murray City initially retained the services of a development company to relocate its city hall and fire station. During the early process, the city realized that it needed an overall master plan for the area. Murray City selected MOCA Services as its Owner’s Representative to review the demographic data and growth projections with the intent to create a facility master plan for them, including the 120,000 SF, $25M City Hall complex and library, 600-car garage, and a 21,000 SF, $8M fire station. MOCA Services continuously works with the City Hall Committee to further develop the master plan.

The Minnesota Historical Society (MNHS) hired MOCA Services as its Owner’s Representative for the Historic Fort Snelling Revitalization project. MNHS set out to develop the area into a compelling destination that presents the area’s military and Native American history. This project required expertise in community engagement, landscape interpretive elements, and the management of bond and donor funds.

The Technology Innovation and Modernization Catalyst (TIMC) brings together 10 different research departments into one space. MOCA Services helped stakeholders prioritize the elements that were most important to the project success during the programming phase. These elements were then delineated into guiding principles that became a governance framework for decision-making throughout the project life cycle.
