Ben Milbank, a senior Project Development Engineer in our New York office, is featured in the June issue of Habitat Magazine. The article is included in their Problem Solvers series, highlighting 21 experts in finance, structure, energy and insurance in the NYC coop space.

“We took a step back and looked at what they were trying to solve, what problems they had, and how to expand these beyond simple fixes,” Ben explains. “The word holistic gets used a lot, but I think buildings really need to be looked at holistically.
