What our Partners Have to Say

"As a nonprofit organization renovating an entire building, Bryson’s appreciation of our mission, his community involvement, intelligence and experience, and his professionalism and ability to think ahead and manage costs/value engineer is nothing short of remarkable. And he is sincerely a “good guy” making our entire construction experience a thoroughly enjoyable one."

“Construction and real estate inherently carries many risks. After collaborating with Bryson and his team for over 10 years, I quickly learned to appreciate their no-nonsense and transparent approach to project delivery and risk management. I think it is generally accepted that there will very likely be issues on any construction project. The true test of any consultant is how they respond to a challenging situation. His team takes a meticulous, proactive and solutions-driven approach which is critical in ensuring the success of any project.”

He considers multiple perspectives and incorporates them creatively into his problem-solving. This type of leadership is passed down to all his select staff. Bryson is knowledgeable but also insightful and someone with passion and commitment.”

“We met Bryson six years ago through a referral from our architecture firm RKA. We had a large and rather difficult project ahead of us and struggled with how to make it through the process while keeping our existing businesses running and unaffected. Our task was to turn a DTLA scrapyard into a flagship showroom, nursery and events center. Needless to say, Bryson and his amazing team made the process painless and delivered an incredibly well constructed and beautiful building on time and without the anticipated angst. We still get remarkable reviews on this project to this day! ”
