assion. Pride. Integrity. MAST Construction Services aims high. Led by Founder and Presi- dent Ted Domuracki , MAST stands by a client-focused phi- losophy in its work as a full- service project management, construction management, owner’s representative and distressed projects consulting firm based in Little Falls, New Jersey. “By providing our clients with needed services and en- suring clear communications between project owners and their contractors, we’ve built a sound reputation for suc- cessful projects,” said Domu- racki, an industry notable whose professional status encompasses 40 years of real estate and construction work, including as an executive for two major New York Metro- politan construction manage- ment firms. In June MAST will cel- ebrate its 15th anniversary in business, an accomplish- ment marked by more than $1 .5 billion in work and more than 200 completed public and private sector projects in the tri-state region, includ- ing ventures in: institutional work, education, recreation and government projects, plus continuing care communities. “Our focus is on providing solid, yet agile solutions to our clients in timely, cost- effective and flexible ways,” said Domuracki. “Our expec- tation is optimal results based on nothing short of absolute quality and service for every one of our clients; on every one of our projects.” Domuracki, who amassed two decades of experience in the industry before estab- lishing MAST in 2001, has directed his award-winning construction services firm in a sizeable range of projects, such as the $375 million Pru- dential Center Arena project in 2005 that included 18,000 arena seats in Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center. MAST served as the owner’s representative for the project and was recognized for its achievement with the ‘Best of 2008 Award’ for project of the year by New York Construc- tion magazine. Also in 2008, MAST began a six-year engagement with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey for its World Trade Center Down- P

town Restoration Program in New York City. The project, for which Domuracki was named as senior construction consultant, General Manager, Program Integration, included consultation work for the site’s One World Trade Center, Na- tional September 11Memorial and Museum, Transportation HUB and the various Retail components. Today, much of MAST’s work is aligned with answer- ing an overriding need for public spaces, court houses, public recreational spaces, residential and hospitality construction, and education facilities centered in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). One project, Bergen County Special Services, has planned to house its Autism Programs in a single location and con- struct a new educational and administration facility. The building will consist of in- structional rooms and of- fices for the middle and high schools of the New Bridges Program and the Adult Step- ping Stone Program. There will also be a three story administrative building for the Bergen County Technical and Special Services School District. As well, MAST is involved in a new $38.5 million Family Courthouse in Elizabeth, New Jersey, for the Union County Improvement Authority. The site features six new court- rooms plus office, circulation, storage and other spaces. Among the firm ‘s other cur- rent projects is a $21.5 million major expansion of the Lillian Booth Actors Home in Engle- wood, New Jersey, an assisted living and skilled nursing facility that will encompass

Hudson County Community College, North Hudson Campus an additional 45 beds, ex- pansion of sub-acute care, a progressive rehabilitation and activities wing, and lobby renovation. Additionally, the MAST team has taken on the $10.5 million conversion of 14 acres of brownfields into recreational space, at Berry Lane Park in Jersey City, New Jersey, with the project’s current phase centered on two basketball courts, two tennis courts, a baseball field, a turf soccer field, lacrosse field and a playground and concession stand. Business isn’t all that’s on the rise at MAST. So is the talent of the firm’s skilled staff, which spans up to 25 people. Longtime team mem- bers Troy Marzziotti , Jim Napolitano and Paul Sk- abich recently advanced from senior project manager to project executive positions, with their outstanding work, solid reputations and impor- tant contributions noted by Domuracki. “Providing top-rate client- focused services is the priority

of every member of the MAST team,” said Domuracki. ‘We pride ourselves on recruiting and retaining highly experi- enced professionals who are committed to bringing quality work to every job through su- perior workmanship, respon- siveness and reliability. It’s howwe’ve built our reputation and is the basis for our future direction.” That commitment to excel- lence has been noted by others too. Recently MAST and the other teammembers involved in the $17 million construction of the Hudson County Com- munity College Library Build- ing in Jersey City, New Jersey were recognized with the New Jersey Business & Industry Association’s 2015 “New Good Neighbor Award,” for their work on the 117,000-square- foot project, including 33,000 square feet of dedicated li- brary space. MAST also has been hon- ored for key accomplishments on other projects in New Jer- sey, including: the Hudson County Community College’s

Culinary Arts Institute and North Hudson Campus; the Hudson County Correctional Center; the Garden Streets Lofts in Hoboken; Newark South Ward Police Precinct’s OEM Facility; and the New- ark Riverfront Park. Now the firm is focused on continuing to build on its rep- utation as a forerunner in the owner’s representative sector of the tri-state region’s project/ construction management industry. After all, MAST’s dedication and commitment to seeing that projects are completed on time, within budget and to excellent stan- dards aren’t only what the firm’s clients deserve, but also what they’ve come to expect and value so highly from the MAST team. ‘We are proud of our reputa- tion as an industry leader over the past decade-and-half,” concluded Domuracki. “All of us at MAST look forward to serving our clients well into the future- and in the best possible ways to meet their needs.” n
