Share post:

Join Rens Hayes and William Mandara Jr., CEO of Mancini Duffy, for an exciting conversation about how they are shaking up the architecture industry on the Design development. Mancini Duffy is a full-service architectural firm that has been around for over 100 years, but William and his partners acquired it in 2017 and have been reinventing it ever since. With offices in New York City and New Jersey, they serve clients nationwide, offering expertise in everything from corporate interiors to multifamily residential development.

In this episode,  William shares his secrets for success, including the critical importance of expertise and experience in complex engineering projects. He also emphasizes the need for a diverse and nimble internal structure, where teams are organized by relationships rather than by sector. This allows employees to explore different project types and gain experience across multiple disciplines, ensuring they maintain a level of expertise while also broadening their skillset.

But that's not all. William also talks about the Anti-Architect Podcast, a passion project run by his partner Christian, which has helped them get their brand out there and reach new audiences. With an eye on the future, William and his team are always looking for new ways to innovate and push the boundaries of what's possible in the architecture industry.

Do you know how much you could be saving on your building structure costs?

We help developers save an average of $800,000 in structure costs per project.

How is that possible? Structure costs are not something structural engineers typically measure, making it impossible for them – and you – to understand the cost implications of each design decision.

Seemingly insignificant design decisions greatly impact the bottom line.
