Managing partners, experience

and major projects.

Beatriz Baldan, Managing Partner

Highlights of Experience

Before immigrating to the United States to pursue a postgraduate degree in Architecture at Columbia University in New York received her Master degree in architecture form Buenos Aires University and as register architect performed design services for a variety of new construction projects including multifamily housing, meat processing plants and facilities, and specialized unit hospital projects. Responsibilities included programming, design, production of contract drawings and field supervision. She taught Architectural Design at Buenos Aires University and Industrial Design at La Plata University. 1968-1971 She was team member in several national winning design competitions.


Beatriz Baldan was appointed Officer of Columbia University's Planning & Construction Office shortly after graduating from the Columbia's post graduate Architect program in 1973. The experience she gained here set the groundwork for her focus on community development projects that also took into consideration the ideas and concerns of the society and citizens that the project was to serve. Working in this environment also gave her ability to multi-task project management duties, contract maintenance roles, leading the design team, coordinating with consulting engineers, and field supervision in order to successfully bring her projects to spec in an orderly fashion.

After completing her tenure with Columbia University (1973- 1983), Beatriz went on to become a consultant to many high profile clients such as the United Nations Development Programme and the New York City Housing, Preservation & Development Corporation for affordable housing (1982- 1984). Guided by her innate understanding of community resources and needs, she continued to focus on community and housing development as Development Project Manager for Full Spectrum Building & Development and Skanska USA Building Inc.

Beatriz brings with her a penchant for detail and managing projects to spec for many of the communities she has helped develop, by aiding in the initial site investigation, programming, design development, preparation of construction documents, approval of shop drawings & equipment inspections, field construction, coordination, supervision, contract and construction administration. Her career has developed through the years excelling at all levels of the development process.

In the first few years of his career George honed his architectural designing skills through a number of medium to large scale projects. Although, trained as an architect George’s real passion began with the design of functional spaces and later the actual creation of those spaces. From here George began his extensive career in Project Management with a concrete excavation crew learning the basics of construction operations as an assistant to the Operating Engineer.
