“It is an honor to be recognized by the Skyscraper Museum, and to have worked with the developers, architects, and construction firms that have advanced the city’s skyline through innovative design,” said Stephen DeSimone, President and Chief Executive of DeSimone Consulting Engineers.
DeSimone has completed numerous award-winning projects in New York City, including P.S. 62, NYC’s first net-zero energy school, the iconic Standard Hotel and New School University Center, as well as super-tall developments 220 Central Park South, 50 West, and 111 Murray.
