We’re Celebrating 10 Years of Business!
Laland Baptiste is celebrating 10 years of business in the construction management industry. As we reach this milestone, we want to reminisce on how far we have come, and how much we have accomplished in those 10 years.
On July 28th, 2008 Laland Baptiste was set into motion in a converted home office in Brooklyn, New York. Founders Schillivia Laland and Robert Baptiste worked vigorously to grow their company into the business it is today by responding to countless Requests for Proposals and continuously networking with other professionals to get the Laland Baptiste name out there in hopes of landing a project.
After many long days of hard work and dedication, the company secured its first project. This project entailed the upgrade of a residential stairway in the heart of Brooklyn, New York. This was exactly the start Laland Baptiste needed to get off the ground. Securing this first project afforded us the opportunity to apply for certification as a Minority and Woman Owned Business Enterprise with New York State. This certification opened additional doors for work. In 2010, Laland Baptiste was given the opportunity to be a subconsultant for the Battery Park City Pier A project in New York, New York. This historic, three-story building underwent a major transformation to become the Pier A Harbor House.
From there, Laland Baptiste grew. Managing projects, maintaining budgets, and providing excellence throughout the years has led the company to become the successful business that it is today, with a multitude of projects and satisfied clients.
While much has changed over the years, one thing will always remain the same; we at Laland Baptiste value our employees and clients and hold ourselves and our projects to the highest standards, always working toward providing our clients with the highest level of professional services.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us and helped us reach this success. We are proud of the progress Laland Baptiste has made, and we look forward to embarking on the next 10 years and beyond!
