2012 Engineering News Record Southeast, “Best Projects, Freedom Tower.”

2012 Engineering News Record Southeast, “Best Projects, Freedom Tower” Recognized for Construction Excellence, November 2012

Aeon was instrumental in making the Miami Freedom Tower Restoration a success. Their technical knowledge and expertise, combined with his extensive background in architectural history were critical on this project. The entire project team relied heavily on Alfonso to guide us through this complex project, to communicate difficult technical restoration concepts to the project Owner, and to keep us on schedule. Most importantly, however, Alfonso was able to balance the demands of a historic restoration project with the reality of the Owner’s budget to provide them with the very best value for their investment. I look forward to someday working together again with Alfonso and Aeon Preservation Services. -Ben Baffer, VP Operations, Kaufman Lynn Construction
