“We believe in collaboration, communication, and transparency.
We live in Santa Fe and are raising our children here – we are committed to its continued vitality and economic health.”
Peter Brill, Principal of PBI Construction Consulting
Peter Brill, Esq., Principal
Peter’s father, Sidney Brill, was a powerful force in public-works construction in New York City from the 1960s through the 1980s. Throughout his youth, Peter served as an apprentice to Sid. After Sid’s passing in 1990, Peter assumed management of his dad’s firm, which included detangling several lawsuits, thereby igniting his interest in the law. Peter closed the business in 1991 to enroll in the University of New Mexico’s School of Law. Upon passing the bar, Peter incorporated Sarcon Construction in Santa Fe (in 1995), adopting the name of his father’s company. Sarcon is known throughout the Sangre de Cristo foothills as a progressive and trusted builder, with signature works including Stieren Hall at Santa Fe Opera, Levan Hall at St. John’s College and SITE Tomorrow for SITE Santa Fe. This experience, managing projects with a combined value over $100MM, along with Peter’s legal background, inspired the formation of PBI as a distinct entity to serve the interests of owners and other professionals in the architecture, engineering and construction communities.
Peter is the only owner’s representative in Santa Fe and the surrounding area who is both an attorney and contractor. Having a legally trained and experienced person as your representative at the negotiation table preempts many issues that could become problems. Acknowledging this dual expertise, the American Institute of Architects and the Association of General Contractors have called on Peter to serve as a resource.
