“We worked with Stephen on a complicated renovation project for Bojangles Coliseum. Stephen was great at figuring out solutions to complex issues and dealing with requests from the Owners. Having someone like Stephen who was unruffled by the constant changes throughout the process was a huge advantage to the entire team and to the project.”
