In 2011, the Facade Group expanded to the east coast – adding a Philadelphia office. The Facade Group East, headed by David Altenhofen, has since grown from one person to a staff of seven. Building on the strength of TFG in Portland TFG East has attracted a group of extremely talented individuals each with their own special strength to add to our client service. Our special knowledge and skills with traditional construction materials and digital performance modeling are strong additions to our consulting services.
TFG East not only services projects in the greater Philadelphia region but we are also regularly working on projects in central New Jersey and New York City. We have projects stretching from Massachusetts to Virginia. Our clients include major institutions, developers, home owners associations and individuals. We have been lucky to work with a wide range of talented architectural firms, both local and from out of town. Finally, we have worked for many of the finest construction managers and contractors in the area. We are exceptionally proud of the high percentage of repeat clients and referrals.
Our projects have ranged from investigations of leaky houses and contractors quality inspections all the way up to huge office buildings and high-rise hotels and residential buildings. We are equally skilled at new construction and working on existing buildings. We are particularly proud of our work on energy saving design, including three net zero energy projects. We have very quickly become recognized industry leaders on the east coast. Our staff is committed to exceeding client expectations and consistently producing a superior result.
