Please also enjoy the associated cover story in which our Managing Partner Michael Haber chimes in on certain aspects of the industry. Excerpt provided below:

 

“While subcontractors are giving more input into the construction process, many complain that some owners and GCs continue to impose tough contract conditions. Contracts are becoming more onerous, requiring longer legal reviews and costs. “Gone are the days of a handshake and signature. Many contracts require quite a bit of back-and-forth for weeks or even months before getting someone on board,” says Michael Haber, managing partner of W&W Glass.”

This year, the AIA chapters of Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island, all collaborated for the awards. They’re aiming to promote chapter members and affiliates by recognizing (as stated in a press release) “the best architecture and professionals that Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and The Bronx can offer.” A jury from AIA Long Island sifted through more than 100 entries, and after a month’s worth of deliberation, allocated awards in 13 categories; each AIA Chapter also has its own award.
