R.P. Brennan, a leader as General Contractor to the Healthcare Sector, demonstrated to Columbia University Irving Medical Center’s Capital Project Management Team, its proficiency and experience in healthcare facilities construction, from constructing patient exam and treatment rooms, labs, meeting rooms, classrooms, and unique common areas, to be approved as a Qualified Vendor as General Contractor.

According to Steven Kirschenbaum, EVP-Corporate Strategy & Business Development of R.P. Brennan, “We look forward to working with Columbia University Irving Medical Center, a world-class healthcare organization, academic medical center, and the largest campus of New York-Presbyterian Hospital.  We believe our commitment to a Double Bottom Line approach is what differentiates us from other construction firms. This approach extends the conventional technical skill and financial bottom line of a project, which measures a well-built, well-executed project with an eye on fiscal performance, and adding a second bottom line to measure our performance in terms of positive social impact to our people and our clients. Our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion among our team is one of our greatest qualifications. An organization such as ours that prioritizes Diversity, Equity and Inclusion creates an environment that respects and values individual differences which contribute to a fulfilling work environment and better outcomes for us and our clients.”
