What is the most meaningful project?

The Halliburton Campus project in 2014 was one of the most meaningful projects of my career. It was the largest scale project that I personally managed, and due it being an oil and gas company, the safety protocols were extreme.

What project are you most proud of?

I am most proud of the Levy Park Project. It was a multidisciplinary project and showcases everything we offer as a company: Landscape Installation, Water Features, and Hardscape Construction.

What does it mean to you to be a solution-ist?

To me, it means that the moment someone needs an answer, they call me, and I am able to deliver. At B&D, we strive to be a one-stop shop by providing multiple disciplines to complete all landscape construction needs.
