What is something people in your industry/niche have to deal with that you want to fix?
Many of this industry’s problems stem from a disconnect between the design and construction phases. Operating in a design-build capacity is a step towards bridging that gap significantly. Ultimately, it still really comes down to clear objectives and communication.
What do you do at Spaces Renewed?
A bit of everything, but my primary focus is on design and taking it from initial concept to completion as intended. My role involves keeping a close eye on all projects, from initial client contact to project turnover.
