ALBERTO VALNER

"Being in the construction industry for over 40 years and working with Alex representing me and our organization for approximately the last 5, I have found him to be among the most competent, organized and knowledgeable individuals in the Owners representation field."

ALBERTO VALNER
IMMEDIATE PAST PRESIDENT & BUILDING COMMITTEE CHAIR, WILSHIRE BOULEVARD TEMPLE
RICK WATERS

"I have had the pleasure to work with Alex on 3 very large and complex projects. I always felt secure that Alex had our best interests at heart and really looked out for us as a client. Well organized, proficient, and tirelessly hardworking, Alex prevailed in all situations and our projects were a success!"

RICK WATERS

PATRICIA V. OSTILLER

"As a nonprofit organization renovating an entire building, Bryson’s appreciation of our mission, his community involvement, intelligence and experience, and his professionalism and ability to think ahead and manage costs/value engineer is nothing short of remarkable. And he is sincerely a “good guy” making our entire construction experience a thoroughly enjoyable one."

PATRICIA V. OSTILLER

CARLOS SERRA

"Construction and real estate inherently carries many risks. After collaborating with Bryson and his team for over 10 years, I quickly learned to appreciate their no-nonsense and transparent approach to project delivery and risk management. I think it is generally accepted that there will very likely be issues on any construction project. The true test of any consultant is how they respond to a challenging situation. His team takes a meticulous, proactive and solutions driven approach which is critical in ensuring the success of any project."

"Working in the construction and development industry for over 23 years I have worked with a lot of various team members. With that in mind, I have had the pleasure and the luck to work with Alex for the last 5 years on three large and complex projects. He is a natural leader who is competent, organized and a knowledgeable Owners representative. He is a superb team member who keeps the project and the team’s best interests at heart. With professionalism, a direct, transparent, and collaborative approach, Alex ensures project success. I wish he were on all our projects."

"I truly consider Alex to be one of the good ones in our industry. He has an innate ability and laser focus to arrive at solutions that move complex problems and projects forward, and doing so in a manner that keeps the people and the teams wanting to continue to work together. This is such a rare attribute that I have only seen in a few leaders after my more than 35 years of experience as an Architect. He was instrumental to the project’s success and I hope to work with him time and time again.”

DEBRA GEROD

MARCO MARRACCINIS

“I have worked with Alex directly for over five years on many successful projects. He is a great collaborator and always pushes for the best solution through thorough research and analysis. His knowledge and professional demeanor bring confidence to all parties involved in a project. I hope to consistently work with Alex for the rest of my career as an architect.”

MARCO MARRACCINI
PARTNER, ABRAMSON ARCHITECTS
AMIE NULMAN

“In my experience as a design engineer and manager of a building engineering team on a complex, award-winning project with Alex, he continually had a positive and project-first mentality and approach to the inevitable project conflicts. Alex’s ability to de-escalate tense situations on the project and navigate the team to a solution were invaluable.”

AMIE NULMAN
ASSOCIATE PRINCIPAL, ARUP
STEVE DONAHUE

“Our company has enjoyed collaborating with Alex on several significant and challenging projects over almost a decade.

Alex is extremely knowledgeable and demanding but also fair and honorable. These are the best attributes you can find in a teammate.”

STEVE DONAHUE
PRESIDENT & CEO, DEL AMO CONSTRUCTION

“Alex’s in depth knowledge of all aspects of design and construction sets projects up for success. He understands how all the moving parts of a complex project can create efficiencies or cause friction. He clearly communicates his clients’ mission to the design team, and then works with the design team to leverage their expertise to meet the project’s goals. I’ve really enjoyed my opportunities to work with Alex, as it feels that all team members on his projects are working towards a common goal.”

BRIAN O’NEIL
PRACTICE MANAGER, HENDERSON ENGINEERS
JIM DUNN

“Modular construction is distributive. Not necessarily the outcome, but rather the process. To work with The Cooperative LA, who understood the nuances and differences of modular design, preconstruction and implementation - was a breath of fresh air. Quite honestly, The Cooperative’s ability to navigate the disruptive nature of modular construction is what the modular industry and LA housing market has been needing for years.”

JIM DUNN
PRESIDENT, STACK MODULAR
HOWARD KOZLOFF

“I’ve worked with Bryson and his team on multiple projects over several years. They consistently meet budgets and timelines, and are highly responsive and communicative when the inevitable questions pop up along the way. They are clearly knowledgeable and relish problem solving, which make them ideal partners for our projects. I trust them and I am always confident that they are seeking ideal solutions and will follow through on work as promised.”

LARRY KORMAN
PRESIDENT, AKA HOTELS & HOTEL RESIDENCES
GREG SALMERI

“We met Bryson six years ago through a referral from our architecture firm RKA. We had a large and rather difficult project ahead of us and struggled with how to make it through the process while keeping our existing businesses running and unaffected. Our task was to turn a DTLA scrapyard into a flagship showroom, nursery and events center. Needless to say, Bryson and his amazing team made the process painless and delivered an incredibly well constructed and beautiful, building on time and without the anticipated angst. We still get remarkable reviews on this project to this day!”

GREG SALMERI
CO-CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, ROLLING GREENS
DERICK STACE NAUGHTON

“Sean inherited several very challenging construction projects underway: delayed, no budgets, unqualified contractors, no specs. At the time, we didn’t even understand what a difficult job it was: fixing ongoing projects, launching new projects effectively, and still hitting quite aggressive timeline targets. Sean made an immediate impact and built a capital-efficient, super-fast development capability that became a competitive advantage for the company. Even with bad news or missteps, I learned I was always getting a straight story with Sean. I trust him immensely and would go well out of my way to work with Sean again.”
