Ashley Malone

Design Coordinator / Office Manager

For Design Coordinator Ashley Malone, priority number one is defining and refining our clients’ vision of how they want their finished project to be. This means bringing her years of experience in real estate marketing and advertising along with years in design/build to bear so that the end product not only looks right, it is right with all city regulatory agencies as well. Design comes in many forms on a design/build project and Ashley deals with both interior and exterior aspects that bring the entire project to life. The phrase “ground up” is about the only way you can describe all of the phases of a project that she manages.
