CRAIG HESS, AIA, CSI, LEED®APVice President Phone: 612-373-4655
Craig works largely behind-the-scenes at ESG, where his expertise is essential to the success of every project. As ESG’s Quality Assurance Director, Craig directs production operations, reviews drawings and construction documents to eliminate errors and inconsistencies, and develops specification requirements and solutions. He also coordinates processes and procedures with ESG’s construction administration staff. Given his 40+ years of experience, Craig is also the firm’s technical and code guru.
Craig has worked on a wide range of projects, including complex hotels and casinos, the adaptive reuse of historic structures, large new mixed-use projects and small renovations. His primary clients are the ESG colleagues and consultants he advises. Craig assists ESG in delivering well-coordinated drawings that may, or most often, result in fewer change orders, and documents that improve production efficiency. Craig’s thorough understanding of codes and other regulatory issues, and fast, knowledgeable responses to technical questions, result in the smooth delivery of ESG’s projects.
