Charlie has directed multi-million dollar office, warehouse, specialty, and condo construction projects as well as developed large mixed-use sites. With years of construction experience and after working with an integrated developer (bought the land, designed the building, built the building, and even property managed the asset – all in-house) that was an early adopter of LEED, Mr. Cichetti became a LEED Consultant and Trainer.
Charlie currently oversees the Sustainability Consulting and Technical Service departments for SIG and is based out of our Atlanta office. While working across multiple building types, he has managed certifications across nearly all of the LEED rating systems.
