The Ayer Condominum and 10 Rittenhouse Tower, Sales Center and Red Door Spa

As a Project Manager and Project Architect at PZS Architects over a six and a half year span, I was given the charge to work on two high-end luxury condominiums, The Ayer, an adaptive reuse project in collaboration with Wesley Wei Architects on Washington Square and 10 Rittenhouse Tower and Sales Center in collaboration with Robert A.M. Stern Architects.  Given the responsibility to document the interior units, in coordination with consultants and manage a small team of architects, from initial existing condition documentation thru construction documentation and construction administration process in the field including punch listing.  Both condominium projects included over two dozen unit customizations which required documentation, coordination with consultants, ownership representative, contractors, unit owner architects, interior designers, audio-visual, shade and window as well as structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, acoustical, and lighting consultants. Part of the Rittenhouse project also included the Alison Building fourth floor Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa Fit-out that included construction documentation thru bidding architectural services.
