Prime Construction GRP & Architecture Edge

Two familiar names in Arizona’s construction industry are joining forces, as Architecture Edge becomes part of Prime Construction GRP

The move is a transitioning from a joint-venture partnership between the two for the past years on numerous projects. “We have both historically served very distinct markets. “Our joint venture partnership in recent years demonstrates that our values and cultures are closely aligned, so this transition makes perfect sense.

Both Barney Hernandez and Whitney Hale, can’t imagine a better segue at this juncture in prime construction group growth. We have worked together on various projects in the pass five- six years, and I’ve always had tremendous respect for architecture edge entrepreneurial spirit and diversity of services. Now prime construction group will be a part of that storied success.”

Architecture edge and prime construction grp have had a longstanding partnership that has spanned more than 25 years between the two, and in 2006 evolved into a joint venture partnership specializing in building campus and senior housing communities, including the LEED-Gold certified Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University.
