Hello, my name is Christopher Cavallo. I am a graduate of the University Of Maryland School Of Architecture with a Bachelors of Science in Architecture. I am currently a Production Designer at New York Design Architects in the TriBeCa area of Lower Manhattan. My Construction background is in Commercial Waterproofing, roofing, and exterior applications, as well as commercial and residential masonry, foundation, and retaining walls. My Architectural background is in the design of cafe's and eateries around New York City.
I currently practice Architecture with New York Design Architects in TriBeCa where I take sole charge of my own projects with some supervision from our Senior Project Architect. I speak directly with corporate clients from Starbucks, McDonalds, and many others, and consult with them on Architectural, Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing designs for retail applications. I am responsible with providing great technical knowledge and experience, all while drafting construction documents in Revit and AutoCAD to accurately document and file designs with the NYC Department of Buildings. I see each project from the initial site survey through the final as-built construction phase and have worked on large sites such as Barclay's Center, Port Authority Bus Terminal, and World Financial Center.
