We are pleased to welcome Dan Grass, our new Project Executive, to Epstein's DesignBuild group! Among other tasks, he will provide management direction and oversight control of projects from concept design through completion while meeting client expectations. Dan's extensive experience includes 20 years of commercial general contracting management as well as 15 years of commercial real estate development. Prior to joining Epstein, he was with Brookfield Properties, serving as their senior director of construction.
Dan attended DeVry University's Keller Graduate School of Management, receiving his MBA and Masters of Project Management Certificate, and Marquette University, where he studied civil engineering. Dan was initially drawn to the industry because of his dad, who was in the construction field and worked his way up from laborer to superintendent.
Dan grew up in Chicago and then moved to Wheeling. He played basketball throughout high school at Saint Viator. Dan's claim to fame? He had the opportunity to play against Isiah Thomas and his team, St. Joseph’s of Westchester High School, who was in their conference! For our non-NBA Epsteiners, IT is a 12-time NBA All-Star who played for the Detroit Pistons.
Outside of work, Dan likes to keep busy! He enjoys spending time with his family and friends, playing and watching basketball (watch out, Isiah), working out, attending car shows, snow skiing and golfing.
Once again, welcome to Epstein, Dan! We are delighted to have you with us.
