Mr. Rene Gutierrez

Principal, TM Residential, LLC

“My personal experience with the Craven Thompson team on the redevelopment of the former American Express call center in Plantation, Florida has been above and beyond my expectations!

Their insight and knowledge of the City of Plantation and Broward County process is one of the main reasons why our mix-use project – Plantation Midtown Square achieved the positive response from so many city and county departments.

The Craven Thompson group of Joe Handley – Planning and Landscape Architecture and Chad Edwards & Luis Pimentel – Civil Engineers truly work as a team, with a refreshing positive mindset and always planning to stay ahead of those very important submittal dates.”
