Minto Bose, MRICS, a prominent New York City-based international construction and real estate consultant, has established a new cost consulting, project management, and owner and tenant representation firm Elemint Consulting.
“Due to the recovering economy, numerous U.S.-based and international companies are currently either expanding or reevaluating their real estate footprint both in New York City and nationwide. Elemint was established to provide these organizations, both tenants and property owners, with cost control, project management, and owner’s representation services that optimize real estate utilization and ensure proper cost management and oversight of construction and development projects,” said Bose, who manages the new company as the Principal and Founder.
Bose founded his own firm after serving as the Partner-in-Charge of the Manhattan-based U.S. office of the international cost consulting firm CHP International, which he joined in 2008. Prior to that, he worked as a Capital Allowances Consultant at KPMG in London, UK; an Associate Partner at Deacon and Jones in London and in Stockholm, Sweden; and a Quantity Surveyor at Bucknall Austin/Citex, now RLB, in London.
Elemint provides its services across all market segments and project types, with the main focus on retail, commercial, finance/trading floor, office, multi-family, manufacturing and distribution, data center, healthcare, education, and hospitality sectors, including both individual projects and portfolios. The complete list of the firm’s services includes cost and commercial management, owner and tenant representation, project management, procurement, project controls, change order management, risk mitigation advice and implementation, and dispute resolution.
Elemint is currently providing owner’s representation and cost consulting services to several international and regional clients, including the French luxury goods designer and retailer Cartier and Columbia Care, one of the largest fully integrated operators in the global medical and adult-use cannabis industry. Bose’s firm is currently serving as cost manager for Cartier’s new retail project in New York City. Columbia Care has engaged Elemint as cost and commercial manager for its extensive national portfolio of manufacturing, cultivation, retail, and dispensary projects. The total value of Elemint’s current active project portfolio exceeds $150 million.
Bose’s portfolio of completed work totals in excess of $4 billion in project value and features some of the largest and most challenging recent construction undertakings in New York, across North America, and internationally. These include the new 2.6 million-square foot headquarters office of a major global financial institution, which is the largest private sector single-occupancy renovation in New York City’s history; the headquarters of the global marketing giant WPP Ogilvy; and the renovation of the 50,000-square foot Cartier Fifth Avenue Mansion, all in Manhattan.
His other projects include the Heron City entertainment and retail complex in Stockholm, Sweden; the signage system atop Barclays headquarters at 745 Seventh Avenue in New York; and the conversion of the Fenchurch Street Railway Station in London, UK.
Bose is a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS), qualified in Quantity Surveying. He is a member of CoreNet and IFMA, and serves as a Financial Liaison to the board of the IFMA Cares volunteer committee, which raises funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and other charitable causes. Bose also serves on the Real Estate Committee of the Bideawee animal shelter in Manhattan.
