Our People

A lot of what we do involves finding the right balance among competing priorities. That can mean reducing construction costs, while maximizing durability of building materials. Or keeping projects on track, while making time to honor diverse perspectives and question status-quo thinking. Whatever the factors at play, we are committed to supporting our partners to make wise decisions to reach their goals. We are creative problem solvers who love to collaborate with mission-driven teams to build strong communities. We look forward to working with you!
