“We’re excited to have Tanya join our team,” says Christopher Johnson, Vice President, Building Envelope. “Her diverse background and strong leadership skills will make her a terrific addition to the firm. Tanya’s timber expertise is particularly valuable as it strengthens our ability to deliver on a growing timber portfolio, and expands our service offering in this dynamic sector. Tanya’s background and experience complement a growing number of Entuitive’s current projects in New York, including the revamp of the 1.3-million-square-foot former freight hub at 550 Washington Street and our ongoing work at the Hudson Yards.”
