Victor Canseco, LEED AP BD + C
Victor has lived in East Hampton since 1972, having moved here shortly after graduating from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He founded Sandpebble in 1975 as a residential general construction firm. For the first fifteen years, he spent his days doing carpentry work and nights taking care of administrative duties.
In about 1995, the company shifted its role to construction management in an increasing number of non residential projects and eventually to project management about fifteen years ago. Since then, the company has completed a broad range of projects, primarily in Suffolk County. These have included schools, libraries, health care, hospitality, amusement facilities, equestrian, and a variety of public buildings.
Victor’s focus has always been to define a project’s goals and configure the entire process accordingly. Doing this in an open, transparent manner has been fundamental in Sandpebble’s continued success at delivering projects without surprises to its clients.
