Advantis Holdings’ will focus on its property management business. The company’s subsidiary, Advantis Construction Co., will also continue to operate, maintaining offices in Atlanta; Tampa, Fla.; Raleigh, N.C.; and Richmond and Norfolk, Va., will remain open.

“The current economic environment clearly favors focusing attention and resources on construction and the consultative and advisory parts of our business,” Tim Hague, the company’s former president, says in a statement. Hague will continue to serve Advantis Holdings in an advisory position.
