The company is building a multi-disciplinary team of exceptional professionals consisting of Architects, Engineers and Construction Managers to help their clients execute complex real estate projects. They specialize in assisting mission-oriented organizations and property owners to successfully plan and effectively build space that is highly-functional and economical. As the team grows, they plan to pursue their own real estate development projects in New York City.
