our approach

L​iz O'Sullivan Architecture, LLC

a collaborative approach to architectural specifications

As an architectural construction specifications consultant, Liz O’Sullivan takes a collaborative approach to preparing specifications, and works proactively to coordinate the specifications with the drawings and with the procurement and contracting requirements. During the time Liz practiced as an architect, she managed projects from design phase through construction administration. She thinks like an architect, yet has an understanding of how contractors and subcontractors read construction documents.
