Epstein was selected for our overall design work in Romanian which includes the very visible Bridge Office Building. The Bridge is a speculative office development comprised of two building that are being constructed in separate phases. Phase I, which is roughly 31,948 square meters of gross leasable area, was completed earlier this year. Accepting the award on behalf of Epstein was Nicole Sommer, our business development manager and Geo Bitca, our operations director. It should also be noted that our client for the Bridge Building, Forte Partners, won for Best Office Developer of the Year as well!
Congratulations go out to our Romanian team on this very prestigious award!
