As an integral member of his clients’ teams from the earliest phase of a project through completion, Mark Balfe partners with developers and the various stakeholders on a project to understand the project goals and identify shared solutions. He understands that in development, it is critical to develop solutions that anticipate the unexpected challenges that arise in below grade construction. That’s why he puts himself in his clients’ shoes at every step by thinking ahead and helping them achieve successful outcomes while balancing cost, quality, risk and time.
Mark started his career at Haley & Aldrich in 2000 and since then has collaborated with real estate development clients as a project engineer, project manager, and most recently, a principal. His responsibilities have ranged from due diligence to design and construction for projects involving environmental regulatory compliance, soil management, excavation support, deep excavations, pile foundations, and ground improvement.
Mark holds a Master of Science in geotechnical engineering from Tufts University and a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from the University of Vermont. He is an active member of the National Association of Industrial & Office Properties MA Chapter, and the Urban Land Institute Boston/New England Chapter. Mark has also chaired the Haley & Aldrich annual golf tournament since its inception in 2011 and has raised more than $130,000 for Boston Children’s Hospital, Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, and Brigham & Women’s Hospital.
