Marc Spector, a former principal of Spectorgroup, has launched a new architecture firm called Spector Companies.
The new firm has three offices, including one at 220 Crossways Park Drive West in Woodbury, where Spectorgroup has been headquartered. Its two other offices are on 34th Street in Manhattan and at Wynwood Garage in Miami.
All staff that were at Spectorgroup’s Woodbury office have transitioned to Spector Companies at the same location.
Spector says the new firm will have a strong focus on sustainability and AI innovation, and offer services that span architecture, interior design, project management, master planning, and real estate consulting services.
“Our creative and technical teams include some of the industry’s most accomplished professionals who share our values, purpose and approach,” Spector said in a company statement. “We are excited to be able to work more willingly and creatively with our clients, aligning our interests with theirs to become vested creative partners in their achievements.”
The new firm’s WELL-certified and passive, zero-net-energy work protocols bring ESG principles to the built world, while its AI-driven approach is next-generation technology being implemented today.
“United by a collaborative perspective and passion for holistic design, we work together, share ideas, express individual values, and have fun,” Thomas Scotto, a company principal and operations team leader, said in the statement. “The result of this open-minded, interdisciplinary practice is forward-thinking, life-changing creative design.”
Spector Companies’ roster of client/partners includes such featured projects as the 80,000-square-foot Audible Innovation Cathedral in Newark, NJ; offices nationwide for Marcum LLP, including its 91,000-square-foot headquarters at 730 Third Ave. in Manhattan; and multiple projects for Stony Brook University. Other clients/partners include JPMorgan Chase, FlexPoint Ford, Northwestern Mutual and Tritec Real Estate for Station Yards in Ronkonkoma.
