Brad Meltzer: Oversees Plaza Construction Group Florida
When Brad Meltzer started college, he originally planned to be a doctor. After a year, however, he decided to change from pre-med to architecture, a profession he said is in his blood given that several family members became architects.
Today, Mr. Meltzer uses his training every day as president of Plaza Construction Group Florida. He said his knowledge gives clients a sense of comfort that he understands their goals and dreams for projects.
What he learned in the five-year architectural program he completed also helps Mr. Meltzer to liaise with architects and engineers, which he said provides a comfort level for clients knowing Plaza Construction is going to achieve their desires from a design standpoint even if there are budget issues.
Miami is going to continue to grow, Mr. Meltzer says, and he shows a lot of confidence in this cycle of building boom. However, he said, we face challenges in our public transportation and education systems. We need to find mass transit that starts to compete with cities such as New York, San Francisco and Chicago, he believes, and a more equal distribution of good schools in the Miami metropolitan area.
