Design/build solutions for the aviation industry and other markets

Services We Offer

Western LLC provides design/build solutions for the aviation industry and other markets. We are 100% accountable to our customers for their development projects. Depending on the needs of a client, Western LLC centralizes all aspects of the development, including research, site selection, architectural design, engineering services, government approvals, financing, marketing, and property management.

An airport owner or manager may be the first to recognize the need for new buildings, infrastructure, or expansion. Once the need is identified, airports contact us to provide all the activities necessary to carry out such projects. Western LLC has worked with airports throughout the United States to provide the support and services needed for a variety of specialized projects. With an impeccable track record of “on time and on budget” delivery, our clients bear witness to our mutual success.

Chino Airport (CNO)

“There were significant challenges during the project. The project was the largest at the airport to be entitled by the City of Chino subsequent to annexation of the County Airport into the City of Chino. Many aspects of the permitting and entitlement process had to be established and vetted during the course of the project. Specifically, there were no established processes for granting easement to the various utility companies that were providing electrical and telecommunication services to the project site. Legal descriptions of the dedications were required to be developed and included as a component of the easement granting application. Mr. Henderson and his team managed these challenges without burdening our Department of Airports.”

San Bernardino Count Airports Administration

Palm Springs International Airport (PSP)

“As the Airport Manager with a strong development background, I convinced the City to pursue construction of privately owned hangars through a master developer. The challenge was to construct 16 box hangars to accommodate large turbo-prop aircraft in an area that was inconvenient for construction. The scope of the project was huge- in order to construct the hangars (which doubled the hangar space on the airport), the grade on site had to be raised more than 20′ with soils consisting of rocky shale. Mr. Henderson and his team successfully negotiated a lease agreement with the City of Steamboat that paved the way for this construction to occur. This was no small task, as the local governing body was skeptical of outsiders not local to the community. Mr. Henderson and his team completed the project and helped prove that this type of public/private partnership could work out of the small resort airport… I highly recommend Brad Henderson and his company, Western LLC, for your airport development needs.”

“During my tenure as Director of Aviation at the Palm Springs International Airport located in Palm Springs, California, I was privileged to work with Western LLC in its role as developer, program/construction manager and turn-key specialist… Western LLC performed an amazing and seamless job for the City of Palm Springs and its leaseholder Signature Flight Support. Western LLC subleased the parcel, designed and entitled the development, provided financing, built the project., formed the Condominium Association and handed the condominium owners the keys ahead of schedule and at the sales prices Western LLC quoted as well as took care of the buyers through (and past) warranty. Without hesitation, I strongly recommend Western LLC for associated Airport development opportunities.”

What are your
development needs?

Each customer development project presents its own unique situation. Most often, this involves planning, code, and engineering issues. We work directly with our clients to develop clear answers – and present the right questions — before projects are launched. We manage the complexity on your behalf, from vision to completion, understanding that each project has its own characteristics and challenges.

Whatever the requirement, Western delivers solutions, with all phases of development handled in-house. Our centralized design/build organization reduces risks and minimizes cost and our professionals work as a team to facilitate communication and reduce delays. From site evaluation to navigating city, state, and federal approvals to financing, our team works with your team from concept to completion.

Our clients come from throughout the United States, and include private enterprises, corporations, economic development groups, cities, and airport authorities.

Strategic and Master Planning

Reduce risk and cost with clear and manageable action steps for highest and best use

Strategic planning is a necessary first step in planning a real estate development, and the most crucial to its success. Planning saves time and money. Before launching any project, Western LLC works closely with all stakeholders to produce a shared understanding of the objectives. From clear aspirations, we understand how to allocate a due diligence team with the right skills to collect and assess information vital for project development. The goal: the best economics and the most effective use specific to each project. A well-formed strategic plan provides the framework for a comprehensive master plan, an evolving document outlining phased development, with clear and manageable actions that achieves the objectives of the stakeholders.

Project Financing and Lease-back Options

Customized funding packages including lending and lease back options

You may choose to use your capital or our financial resources to fund the construction of a new facility. Western LLC can provide you with funding options. We work with banks, insurance firms, pension funds, and equity investors to offer financing options for your development.

Design-Build

Design, entitlement, and construction all in-house to ensure meeting project economics

Western has a unique multi-discipline structure for the design/build process. We bring our clients’ visions to life within their economic constraints. The first step is to establish a target budget and work backwards from this number. Throughout the entire design/build process, transparency is critical to help guide clients in making decisions based on maximum value. Every dollar spent is important. By performing all design, entitlement, acquisition (permits), and construction management in-house, we can save our clients both time and money.

Marketing

Analyze all market sectors to design, produce, and implement results-driven marketing campaigns

Western provides customized marketing strategies and action plans for a results-driven campaign. Each client and development is unique: Our marketing team will work closely with you to understand your own specific objectives. We analyze market sectors and study market trends to tailor a plan that will produce the goals you need. We maintain open communication with our clients during a marketing campaign and provide reports on the market feedback received.

Property Management

Full facility management and maintenance after project completion

Western can handle all property management on existing facilities or those we have developed for clients. We believe in developing a trusted partnership with the property owner and will act in their best interest to maximize return on investment. Our capabilities include a working knowledge of operating expenses, budgeting for improvements, property maintenance, occupancy, rent collection, and record keeping.
