Our Approach

CNY’s Approach to Team Building

From the start of every engagement we host a meeting with the client and the architect to develop a deeper understanding of the client’s objectives and architect’s design vision.

CNY’s principals are experienced professionals in all aspects of the business of construction©, and are focused on enhancing the client’s interests by creating value for projects in a thoughtful way.

Some key areas of input include:

  • Integrating hand-picked engineering design professionals who are experts in their respective disciplines onto the project team.
  • Collaborating with major trade contractors, manufacturers and suppliers early on in the process and integrating them into the project team by utilizing performance based, design-assist contract methods.
  • Creating a forum for a clear and effective exchange of ideas among all team members.
  • Encouraging problem solving and open communication and collaboration among all team members.
  • Sourcing the global marketplace to identify new, lower cost products and efficient construction technologies and methodologies.
  • Cultivating a win-win environment and fostering improved performance.

Through this approach, CNY will take the lead in developing clear measurable objectives, and unifying and focusing the project team on achieving those goals to ensure timely completion of the project.


CNY is committed to safety first. We promote a safe workplace at our jobsites for our employees and trade contractors at all times.

We strive to ensure that all work is performed in a safe manner to protect the general public, employees, workers, visitors and adjacent properties from injury and damage. We take great pride in our safety record.

Before we begin construction on each project, we identify and analyze potential risks and exposures, and develop strategies to address each in our project-specific safety plan. We commit dedicated and trained safety personnel to implement our safety plans.

To develop our safety plans we work proactively with all stakeholders including clients, designers, trade contractors and the workforce to enlist each of them in achieving our vision of an accident-free worksite.

On every project, we commit dedicated, licensed safety personnel who lead the development of our safety plans and monitor the worksite to confirm compliance. Our safety personnel work closely with our project supervisory staff and report directly to our Director of Risk Management and Corporate Safety. He then reports directly to the President of CNY to ensure compliance and accountability.
