Sleepy Hudson, LLC/Leeds United Construction, New York, NY, US, Project Executive

Vice President/Project Executive hired by a boutique New York City Real Estate Builder/Developer specializing in High End Residential Condominiums to assume full Project responsibility during the Pre-Construction phase. Worked closely with the Design team to re-evaluate the Construction Documentation delivery sequence and encouraged them to increase the level of detail, which facilitated coordination among the disciplines. Continually met challenges from both private parties and the City regarding the available square footage for the project. Including challenges regarding the Ownership of the private alley immediately adjacent to the rear yard. Without it the Project would have been a fraction of the planned size.

Pro-actively maintain a position of good standing with New York City Department of Buildings, a major consideration with the hostile environment caused by the recent brash of safety related incidents. Continue to work with the Ownership as they navigate the challenges of completing a Residential Project in a less than accommodating marketplace.

Reorganize the Construction Management leadership: re-bid and/or renegotiated all Trade Contracts. Working with both the Design team and the Production team, brought down Construction costs to the predetermined budget provided by the Ownership. Challenging work site logistics require constant coordination, internally and with ongoing construction on adjacent properties.

Development Consultant marketing the “Project” as several other possible uses: For-Sale, Rental, Hospitality, Student Dorms and Mixed Use. Prepare Pro Forma Packages for each option. Present packages to potential Developers, Partners and Lenders.
