Our People

Chris Magaldi, PE

“There are few things better than solving a problem. Changing your view and rotating the puzzle board around until the last piece is in place. We do this every day as engineers and architects. It is exciting to watch the relationships we grow and the positive effect we can have on people’s lives as we build a new environment or enhance an existing place. Being able to walk your family through a project you completed and feeling the pride build-up is amazing and drives us to be the best at what we do every day.”
