The Right
Approach
Lauto Group Logic Inc. designs and develops
in New York with an adaptable approach to
building its project teams. BY CHRIS PETERSEN

After a long career in the construction supply business, Anthony Lauto formed construction advisory firm
Lauto Group Logic Inc. because - as he saw it - there were
so many great projects that fell short of their true potential.
Lauto says the extensive knowledge he had built up over the
years of construction materials and other supplies meant he
could see examples of developers and builders working so
hard to get the job done that they couldn't possibly find the
required additional time to bring the project to an even higher level of form, function and performance, and he wanted
to change that.
"It's the reason I started this entire endeavor," he says. "Too
often, project deadlines, filing and inspection protocols, and
overall jobsite pressures end up causing stakeholders to take
the path of least resistance to achieve completion. My involvement in a project allows me tap my product knowledge, alternative strategies, experience and relationships to
maximize the true potential of the project."
Today, Lauto Group specializes in building and/or remodeling residential and commercial properties throughout
the New York City and Long Island markets, primarily in an
owner's representative or construction manager capacity.
The company's portfolio in the residential sector runs the

gamut from high-end multifamily complexes to luxury custom homes, and Lauto says the company doesn't shy away
from any type of work because of its price point. He says he
has always believed that the more modest customer is just as
important to a company's success as the more high-end customer, and Lauto Group's organization is geared to handle
virtually any type of project.
By moving from actual construction to an advisory role,
Lauto says, Lauto Group can bring in the best possible team
for each and every project, rather than trying to fit the same
team into differing types of projects. This agile approach,
combined with the company's strong focus on product specification, construction details, and willingness to think outside
the box, produces significantly greater results in an economical and efficient manner which has helped make Lauto Group
one of the New York City market's most sought-after firms.

THE RIGHT TEAM
Because Lauto Group functions more in an advisory role on
projects, Lauto says the company can build its team to meet
the specific needs of each project. With a larger internal
team, he says, the company would be stuck using the people
it had on-hand regardless of their fit for the work that needed to be done. With its ability to bring in trades for specific
needs, Lauto Group can hire a trade that specializes in highend millwork for a luxury home or one that does standard
stock size cabinetry for a more modest project.
As a result of this approach, in addition to Lauto's relationships with manufacturers' representatives from his construction supply days, Lauto Group has formed strong bonds
with a broad selection of the best subcontractors working
in the New York City and suburban markets. Lauto says his
clients are discerning no matter what their budgets are, and
choose him because they know he will research, analyze and
build a strategy to get the job done with the right people.
Having good relationships with the best subcontractors is
crucial for being able to live up to that promise.
