Brian Lafferty

Associate, Director of CO Division

As the Associate responsible for the Certificate of Occupancy Division, Brian Lafferty serves as liaison, manager, and motivator to diverse team members—including architects, engineers, consultants, municipal officials, subcontractors, and clients—throughout the construction process. He leads client meetings to obtain the information required for timely issuance of Certificates of Occupancy. Because financing often requires an up-to-date Certificate of Occupancy, Brian notifies project teams upon receipt of approvals and objections, and he excels at the prompt resolution of objections. He supervises his staff to ensure that completed work complies with submitted plans and applicable laws and that all municipal requirements are met, including any fee payments and/or violation dismissals. A Licensed Cost Estimator in New Jersey, Brian holds a bachelor’s degree from Oneonta State University and a certificate in construction management from New York University.
