The Leaders in Construction Awards celebrate individuals and companies working to change the landscape of the Rochester region through design, construction, project management and more.

The Project Manager recognition honors HB Cornerstone for its work overseeing the planning, design, and construction of many significant and transformative projects in the Rochester area, including the recent expansion of The Strong, an ambitious project playing an integral role in the redevelopment of downtown Rochester.

The Strong’s $75-million project added 90,000 square feet to the already renowned museum, including a 24,000-square-foot interactive gallery known as ESL Digital Worlds. HB Cornerstone also oversaw creation of the eye-catching 1,000-car parking structure.

Dave is being recognized for architectural accomplishments across his career. He has more than 35 years’ experience as a licensed Architect and project manager, and has been responsible for the planning, design and execution of multiple construction projects throughout New York state and across Canada. 

Dave was architect on many significant local projects, including, the New York Wine and Culinary Center (now the NY Kitchen), Constellation Brands Inc. Headquarters in Victor, the Finger Lakes and Hudson Valley NYS Welcome Centers, Butler Till Corporate offices in downtown Rochester, many projects at CMAC Performing Arts Center, and now underway, the Constellation Brands World Headquarters within the Aqueduct Building Campus in downtown Rochester.
