Every project is unique with a distinctive site, community, users, context of existing buildings and program requirements. We therefore take a fresh approach to every project. The key to project success is frequent communication, listening, reliability and attention to detail.

Comments on past projects:
Fred Friedman, Chief, Intermodal Management Bureau:
'Ms. Riskin's personal interest and involvement in the project is largely responsible for moving interest in historic preservation from a vague aspiration to reality, both in this department and among numerous communities, small and large . . . Please accept the thanks of the New Mexico State Highway and Transportation Department's Intermodal Management Bureau for a job that exceeded our expectations.'
Helen Snoke, Chair, Comprehensive Planning Committee, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Santa Fe:
'Marci demonstrated an especially high degree of skill in communication with people who hold many different opinions and ideas as she met with the committee, the Board of Trustees, and congregational members and staff.'
Brendan Adams, Project Manager, Gerald A. Martin, Ltd:
'Marci made herself available to the construction team in order to facilitiate the construction of this extremely complex cast in place concrete structure. This hands-on approach allowed us to collectively derive solutions to the field issues that could have caused major setbacks in the project.'
