What was your greatest professional accomplishment or most notable project, deal, or transaction in 2020? We had a great year servicing all of our major vertical markets: Academic, corporate, retail/hospitality, healthcare, and community. One of the most rewarding projects was our 13,000 s/f, ground-up Pelham House Resort project. We were under a tight schedule to meet the demand of the Cape Cod summer wedding market before the COVID-19 shutdown made it even tighter, but we worked collectively with the project team and subcontractors to accomplish a summer opening. Overlooking Nantucket Sound, this facility instantly became the premier location on the Cape for dining, as well as offering some sense of normalcy for vacationers.
What are your predictions for commercial real estate in 2021? Once a vaccine is readily available, we feel consumer confidence will grow and companies and institutions will start to have their employees return to their offices. There will be a tremendous amount of planning that will go into this return, thus creating demand for our services. We have been well-diversified in our portfolio of work, and this will allow us to capitalize on growing markets. Our strategic approach has always been to service commercial real estate developers, business owners, and discerning institutional and retail clients.
