Build Perkins Construction http://www.perkinsconstruction.net/ Perkins is a local Ann Arbor company who is focused on historic renovations like our at 700 S. State St. ‐ ‐ please see their web‐site for more information Run We have chosen Alpha Management group to run our house. They are located on several campuses, including the Ann Arbor and they specialize in the operations and maintenance/renovation of fraternity/sorority houses. Their website is http://alphamg.net/ . They have proven to be an invaluable resource in telling us best practices among fraternities and they also have been managing our house for
10+ years as a provider to the renter Phi Kappa Psi. They have also helped us complete as‐built drawings, property survey, house renovation plans and a variety of operating activities. From their Website: Alpha Management Group combines a unique set of skills in property management, real estate, construction, and the Greek system which allows our team to offer programing and services that meet the special needs of fraternities, sororities and our group housing clients. We are fully staffed, licensed and insured as property managers, real estate consultants and building contractors. Over the past 20 years, we have worked for over 50 fraternities and sororities completing over $6 million in repairs and improvements. In 2007, Alpha launched its "Fraternities of Excellence" program, which provides comprehensive management and advising to fraternity chapters and alumni. The program has been extremely successful, doubling the number of groups we manage every year since. Last year our clients experienced less than two percent of budgeted rent and dues income in losses due to uncollected rents and fees. The facilities sustained fewer damages because our inspection process holds the members accountable. Within many of our chapters, their fraternity culture has improved significantly as they begin to focus more on leadership and values, and less on facility problems. Our groups are receiving rents in line with the marketplace, and the alumni corporations have been able to build reserves and improve their properties. Detailed monthly financial statements, comparable rent studies, preventative maintenance programs and annual improvement plans have made it easier for alumni to make decisions without having to spend time on the daily burdens of managing a fraternity. Alumni volunteers now focus on more enjoyable and important topics such as leadership, mentoring and advising. Because of this, alumni participation has increased in a number of our groups. AMG offers full service or an ala carte options. Select and pay for only the services that your group requires. Add or take away services in the future as your needs change. This flexible approach allows you to start with your areas of greatest weakness or areas where current volunteers or vendors are not properly performing. Our construction division would also be pleased to be considered for your repair and improvement projects. Over the past 21 years, Alpha has built a reputation for craftsmanship, creativity, dependability, excellent service and the ability to solve difficult building problems.
