Swinerton, a national commercial construction and construction management services company founded in 1888, has expanded its preconstruction team in New York City with the recent hire of Taylor Steucke. As Estimator, Steucke’s primary responsibility is developing accurate and detailed project cost estimates by analyzing project documents, working with trade partners and identifying scope gaps. Steucke graduated from Pratt Institute with a bachelor’s degree in architecture and utilizes her design knowledge and assistant project manager experience to inform clients and design partners of budget solutions that align a project’s intent and vision.

“Within estimating, you have the opportunity to touch a variety of projects with unique and innovative elements that continually provoke a solution-orientated mindset,” Steucke said. Over the last eight years, she has fostered a passion for estimating and growing strong, critical relationships with trade partners. According to Steucke, “Trade partners have expanded my understanding of how intricate construction designs are built in the field compared to how they appear on the plans, and this helps inform our clients and design team in budget and constructability conversations.”

In her role, Steucke supports Swinerton’s efforts in performing tenant improvements for several Fortune 500 and global firms within the New York market. Since opening the New York office in 2021, Swinerton’s project portfolio has grown to encompass projects in the workplace, retail, aviation, industrial and entertainment sectors throughout the metro area. Additionally, the firm is active in the rising self-storage market in the outer boroughs and New Jersey.

“We are extremely excited to have Taylor join the preconstruction team of Swinerton’s New York City division,” said Peter Fontana, Preconstruction Director in Swinerton’s Northeast region. “With her diverse background in architecture, project management and estimating, Taylor is destined to be a key member of our organization for years to come.”
