The president of the employee-owned construction company, Charles W. Brown Jr, and CEO Renee M. Brown recently unveiled its new office space, and celebrated for its LEED designation.

The company’s new office space is located at 1 Labriola Court in Armonk, New York.

The firm has about 40 field and 30 office employees.
The $2-million redevelopment project for the office space, according to company information, would be the first commercial interior in the New York to receive a LEED Platinum certification outside NYC.
