Our leadership team is dedicated to providing the necessary guidance, support, and training so that each Edifice employee may be equipped to live out the company philosophy. This philosophy is guided by four simple principles — to attend to the needs of our clients, to express concern for each other, to take care of our business partners, and to give back to the community by helping those in need.

“Our number one goal is that everyone who interacts with Edifice has an exceptional experience. We do that by delivering amazing buildings to our customers while ensuring they enjoy the building process; by mentoring our employees so they not only achieve their loftiest career goals but also maintain a healthy work/life balance; by helping our design and subcontractor partners be successful and by acknowledging how valuable they are to our success. And finally, by contributing to the overall quality of the communities in which we operate.

As we move into the future, it’s an absolute pleasure to safeguard and build upon a culture that is the foundation of Edifice."
