My company has worked with Stonemark over many years on a number of projects for the Vercal Building. Originally constructed in the 1930's, the aging 220,000 SF building had an assortment of complex problems. Stonemark delivered the highest level of expertise and professionalism from planning, budgeting and construction to close-out. Their design and construction management of our multi-phase project resulted in a beautifully updated building. Today we have a property we are very proud of.
