As an architect who specializes in life sciences facilities, I was interested in forming an alliance with a real estate services group to better serve the needs of my client base. I was originally introduced to Warner through industry contacts as a result of his representation and development of facilities to serve clients and tenants in the life sciences industry. First in San Diego, then throughout California, I have collaborated with IPG to pursue many opportunities and have been successful in developing facilities for a variety of clients, including universities, biotech and pharmaceutical companies, and federal government agencies. During our collaboration, I have come to respect and admire the professionalism, integrity, and spirit of innovation that IPG brings to its clients. I am proud to say that our collaboration continues to this day, and will for the foreseeable future.
