The Atlanta office grew from one employee to over seventy under Ben and his co-managing partner’s lead, while adding over 40 million square feet of assignments.
The Atlanta office is consistently recognized for its work. In 2017 Stream’s Lee + White won best renovation project in Atlanta and the office itself is consistently recognized as a “Best Place to Work” by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
