East 54

Milestone was founded on the belief that things can be better. That planning is a commodity. That honesty is rare. We do not believe success is putting out fires. Success is the ability to smell smoke 8 months ahead of time. Your questions and answers are unique. So are we.

I have had the unique pleasure of working with Milestone as both a General Contractor and as an Owner for two very large commercial projects, both of which had very tight and demanding requirements. Their plans, without fail, were accurate, easy to understand, well-organized and were a tremendously helpful tool in the management, tracking and reporting of the job’s progress.

Milestone readily understands the needs of the project stakeholders, is extremely knowledgeable not just about planning and the role it plays, but also how construction “works”: how a job gets built, how a critical path can shift, how resources and plans can change. That combination of skill and insight is invaluable.
