Cemeteries face unprecedented challenges when it comes to cemetery construction today. Cremation rates are rising, and at the same time families are keeping the cremated remains at home or new alternative cremation options are gaining attention. Some cemeteries are running out of land to develop, and development restrictions on the land they do have are becoming more stringent.
With these as well as other pressures, gone are the days of “build it and they will come.” You need to navigate carefully, maximize returns on your investment and make sure what is developed, sells. If you can pre-sell your projects, even better. Merendino and its associates understand this process, and can provide cemetery development solutions, for any situation.
From sidewalks and retaining walls to walled estate lots. Glass niches and niche gardens. Columbariums, Niche walls and our Patent Pending Mausolino. Even complete cemetery development. Merendino Cemetery Care will listen to your needs, collaborating on solutions that work for you. We are not interested in building out a thousand niches if you are only selling a hundred per year. We specialize in finding inventory that is generally overlooked. Steep slopes, unused walks and paths, open wall space, utility spaces, basements, and unsold crypts. These are all areas that provide for cemetery inventory opportunities.
We are here to help you develop a sustainable model, providing options for your families, inventory for your salespeople and return on your investment.
