Palm Beach Residence



This project involved the extensive redesign and reconstruction of a large house and site on Ocean Drive over an extended period. The project included a new guest house, pool and cabana. 


A complicated project was especially challenging with the Owners, design architect, landscape architect and decorator based in locales from Europe to New York to Virginia. The project underwent a period of re-evaluation, then restarted with firm management controls. Cost, schedule and quality objectives were successfully met. The reconstruction proceeded in phases allowing for design input at scheduled intervals. Good use was made of computer communications with sketches, photos and other data for interim field adjustments. A cost effective management program was designed and executed from Connecticut with periodic visits, weekly or bi-weekly, as required. A complete and successful transformation was accomplished within the cost range of high value projects in the area.
