About us.

Espace is about making our clients' objectives our own
Under the name DesigneSpace Inc. the company was founded in 1992 offering design and construction management services. A decade later, an Espace Construction division was established to focus on providing fixed-price and cost-plus construction services.   In either case, our teams have always operated with a mission to offer our clients a single point of contact and responsibility for all phases of project development and construction. Our integrated approach optimizes our client’s time and resources, resulting in the seamless implementation of a project from concept to fixturing-in.

Attentive attention to quality, reliability and efficiency, have been a hallmark of the company since its founding. In addition, Espace has a unique vision. The company’s two principals are trained architects.

They add this discipline to their profound, hands-on knowledge of the construction industry to create an operating methodology that offers advantages over traditional construction firms.
Espace Construction is dedicated to building environmentally sustainable projects. Every member of the organization is oriented towards collaborative green building standards such as LEED certification.
