William J. Jones: President
William has been in the Western New York construction industry for the last 30 years. His career began restoring several historic buildings along Linwood Avenue in Buffalo. During this time he was also in the electrical construction business working as an estimator and project manager. Moving on from there, he was a partner in the development and construction management of the City Centre Condominium. The project, an adaptive reuse of a 9 story furniture store in Downtown Buffalo, was transformed into a 15-story mixed-use building housing 10 floors of luxury condominiums and 4 floors of commercial space.
After about ten years of involvement in Downtown projects that included 598 Main Street and 70W. Chippewa Street (in addition to the City Centre Condominium and associated parking ramp structure), he moved to what is now known as the Larkin District.
For the last 15 years, he has been involved in all aspects of planning, designing and building or rebuilding this exciting and historic area of the City.
Most recently, as a member of the Board of Directors of Richardson Center Corporation, he was deeply involved in the entire 8-year planning and construction of the new Hotel Henry located on the Richardson Olmsted Campus. This first phase of this historic preservation project was completed in April of 2017 at a cost of about $70,000,000. This adaptive reuse project, perhaps the first of its kind anywhere, houses hotel rooms, a 300-seat ballroom, multiple restaurants and conference rooms, as well as the Buffalo Architectural Center
Steve Savidge: Executive Project Manager
Steve began his construction career as a Field Engineer for the New York State Department of Transportation, Western New York Region 5. During his 10 years with the DOT, he was involved in all aspects of highway construction.
From there he began his own construction business working on homes and small commercial projects in the Western New York area. After about 5 years, he moved his business to the Washington, D.C. area. There, he continued to service small commercial and residential customers.
In 2009 Steve began his career at CityView Construction Management. His first task there was to manage the Seneca Streetscape Project adjacent to what is known as Larkin Square. This was a $2.5 million reconstruction of 4 blocks of Seneca Street, including street lighting, landscaping, sidewalks, curbs, and paving.
After that, Steve moved on to the Larkin Square project where he oversaw the entire design and construction of the public park and restaurant adjacent to the Larkin “U” Building.
In 2016, Steve managed the 7,300 square foot, $1.1 million expansion of the US Passport Office at the Genesee Gateway building. Steve’s experience was instrumental in completing the aggressive 90-day project schedule within this historic building.
Since then, Steve, as Executive Project Manager, has led an array of projects, including residential apartment buildouts, restaurant buildouts, office buildouts for government agencies, and various site work projects.
