GEORGE

ALLEN

Founders

Recognizing their divergent but complementary strengths, Randy Don Carlos and George Allen came together in February 2005 with a shared vision of a new kind of construction entity. Randy’s 10 years of experience as an owner’s representative and 14 years in architectural practice gave him a thorough understanding of how a client and designer view a building project – their needs and objectives. George, with 25 years in general construction/construction management and project management knew first hand how to carry a project through to successful completion; be it a shopping center, hospital, or high rise office tower.

Their vision was of a firm whose expertise would add value to a project from the very moment of its inception, all the way through to its successful occupancy. An organization in which the owner, the architect, the broker, the subcontractor – all players on the project team – could work with and depend on the team for information, guidance, and quality performance. The outcome, it was hoped, would be exemplary project and enduring relationships – an outcome you will see typified as you explore our website.
