A Real Estate builder, designer, engineer, manager and investor since 1971, Ed founded Rehab Builders, Inc. in 1997 to specialize in the adaptive reuse of historic buildings.
Having difficulty finding engineering firms with specialized experience on historic buildings, Ed and Flay Blalock co-founded Rehab Engineering in 2005, to provide plumbing, mechanical, electrical and structural design services.
Over the years Ed would regularly receive requests to aid in the development of projects that were too small for larger firms to be interested in, yet smaller firms lacked the expertise necessary to successfully execute. In 2008, Ed partnered with Flay Blalock, Josh Lipsky and Patrick Reilly to fill this need by creating Rehab Development.
Ed brings over 40 years of experience in all aspects of development, starting with tool in hand construction, through financing, design/build and managment.
