The firm was selected as a solutions provider to help real estate partners to achieve the challenge’s goals.

New Podcast Episode: Building Comradery with Steven Winter 

Fostering comradery is one of SWA’s five company principles that represent the foundation of our values and success. Collaboration, mutual respect, and creating a welcoming community have been core tenants of SWA’s business since its inception nearly 50 years ago! As we work together to make the world more sustainable and equitable, we wonder what the value is in having close working relationships with colleagues, clients, and even competitors.

Steven Winter joins us this month to discuss the many shapes that comradery takes both within SWA and the industry as a whole, and how it has been key to the firm’s success for day-to-day operations, major company transitions, and even a global pandemic.
