In addition to being trained as a master carpenter, he has been a partner in several carpentry businesses, including the millwork shop Marvelous Muebles in Long Island City. On construction projects, Tim steadily worked his way from carpenter to project manager, and finally to his current position as estimator for MG & Company, a position he has held for ten years. He has handled projects with a range of budgets, from modest to multi-million dollar. Beginning with concept budgets that give owners a sense of their possible expenses through rounds of value engineering to final fixed proposals, Tim aims to bridge client goals with the realities of current pricing.
