A bit about us:

Affordable housing construction is an industry dependent on tax credit financing, requiring a depth of understanding and discipline not commonly found in a general contractor. Our industry demands tight pricing deadlines and adherence to strict payment and performance regulation. It requires that we build from imperfect drawings completed with compressed design timelines, and ultimately that we meet strict completion schedules or face the loss of critical funding. A multi-family affordable housing builder faces challenges that only a team with intimate and deep multi-disciplinary experience can understand and mitigate.
