Brag about yourself - what makes you great at what you do?
I have been in private architectural practice since 1979 during which time I’ve designed buildings from coast to coast including many synagogues. We are a diversified firm and currently working in New Jersey on new buildings, renovations, commercial interiors as well as distressed properties.
What types of business contacts are you looking to make?
We are looking for referrals to those needing an architect or, involved in residential or commercial real estate, building construction or commercial interiors. Projects for the Jewish community such as schools or synagogues are of particular interest. We provide many years of knowledge assisting companies with distressed properties. Our office has a depth of experience with retail, industrial, and office design. Every architectural project we work on provides an opportunity to refer other professionals.
