Acting as construction managers, Stonemark became a member of our project team before our architectural firm completed the construction documentation on perhaps one of the most challenging historic rehabilitation projects in the City of Santa Barbara. Stonemark infused the process with a structured methodology and organizational and communication protocols that allowed the Owner’s construction dollars to be applied to their best use. The end result was a high quality real estate asset that was delivered on time and on budget.
