What We Do

Batson-Cook Development Company offers the full range of real estate services from development, capital solutions, and BCDC construction services to brokerage and property management. Although it produces many of its projects as a sole developer, BCDC’s strength is its willingness and experience in partnering with other developers to jointly create a successful project. BCDC’s development partnerships have resulted in projects in virtually all fields of commercial and residential development and brokerage.


Since its inception in 1963, BCDC has been involved in nearly all aspects of the real estate development process. By focusing on specific opportunities rather than product type, it is able to offer a wide variety of development services at a high level including site acquisition and master planning. BCDC specializes in pursuit capital and construction financing including the preparation of pro-formas and financial planning analyses and construction cost estimating. Design coordination, development, construction management and infrastructure development are among BCDC’s areas of expertise.

BCDC is a sister company of Batson-Cook Construction, one of the largest and oldest construction companies in the Southeast. While BCDC operates as a separate company, it has the advantage of leveraging Batson-Cook Construction’s in-house construction knowledge and resources.
