DMR Continues to Increase Project Pipeline and Staff During Challenging Business Environment 789 444 DMR Architects

Despite 2020’s obvious challenges, DMR stands as a bellwether for future commerce with an ever-growing project pipeline that necessitated hiring five new team members in November.

Our extensive $1 billion pipeline includes municipal and public education projects in municipalities eager to take advantage of low interest rates, residential rental developers prepared to house those priced out of the housing market, and corporate entities ready to safely return to business-as-usual.

“New Jersey is resilient; we came back from the financial crisis of 2008 and Super Storm Sandy, and we’re learning and growing stronger as we make our way through the pandemic,” said Lloyd Rosenberg, AIA, President and CEO of DMR Architects.  “Our clients’ current investments will secure their future success and make New Jersey a better place to do business.”

Karen Mastriano, Director of Business Development brings more than a decade of experience working for organizations ranging from Fortune 500 companies to local start-ups and not-for-profits.
