Because I represent the property owner on large capital projects, it is my responsibility to ensure that those engaged in delivering a project are paying attention to details, taking responsibility for meeting obligations, and applying their experiences and situational awareness to problem-solve to the mutual satisfaction of Owner and Contractor. When Ian Schechterman managed my projects, I never worried about meeting that responsibility. It’s a rewarding experience to work with him.
