While we have experience in many aspects of real estate, we focus the majority of our efforts on project management. Our goal is to provide the highest level of project management possible for each client that retains our services. We have small and large projects but are committed to delivering the same level of service no matter what the size. We believe in scheduling, budgeting, and quality…the three keys to any successful development. We have developed a “process” that we institute on every project, tweaking it as each project dictates. That process is worked and adjusted until a successful outcome is achieved.
At Darden & Company, we were formed in 1999 by then Chairman and Founder, William E. Darden, Jr., to provide detailed project management with a high degree of sophistication for projects across Atlanta. On the 19th anniversary of the Company’s inception, November 1, 2018, Mr. Darden sold the company to our three officers and today remains involved in an advisory capacity.
Under the leadership of Jason Hughes, Matt Dale and Kyle Taylor, we remain focused on providing the highest level of quality project management within a multitude of markets. Some of our most recent notable projects include the project management of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, thyssenkrupp Elevator’s Innovation and Qualification Center, Atlanta Falcons’ Training Facility, Atlanta United’s Training Facility, Kennesaw State University Student Housing, along with many others. Our expertise is sought after for projects across the Southeast as we remain committed to delivering our signature high-level of service no matter the size, scope, or location.
Always with an eye on the future, in August of 2019, our firm leaders made a strategic decision to acquire one of the Southeast’s leading project management consulting firms, Collins Program Management, Inc. (Collins). Culturally aligned, this move broadened our offerings and complemented our expertise across a broad range of vertical markets, putting us in an even better position to provide unique client services to meet ever-changing demands.
