I meet with clients or vendors to reach important milestones in design/selections or construction. Gain approval to proceed to the next level. There are many layers to the design and build process and the best part of my job is that I get to work on all of those levels. Since I am a general contractor, I don't specialize in any one area. Instead, I assist in helping to manifest all of our projects from conception to execution to completion.
