ForeFront is currently serving as Owner’s Representative for our 24 acre, 8 building 800,000 SF adaptive reuse site in the East End of Pittsburgh.  Simply put, Chad and Brandon are true professionals and have delivered superior service to our project by any measurable standard in the industry. They manage dozens of simultaneous workflows and are absolutely essential in maintaining our construction schedule, providing clear communications with our anchor tenant, and continually building and fostering relationships with the various trades on the job. Their combination of intellect, relationship building, integrity, and decisiveness is rare indeed and I find it hard to express the gratitude for this team’s contributions in an extremely difficult project.
