Responding to the needs of a growing city in the post-war boom, Alexander and his son Charles broadened the firm’s services to general contracting and construction management and
in the process earned a reputation for integrity and dependability.
In the 1970s, the firm’s leadership expanded to include
Alexander’s grandsons, Daniel Bernstein and Richard Wolf..
Today, the company has a record of creative problem solving and project success from institutional, corporate and not-for-profit clients.
