If you are considering the purchase of a property and would like to gain an understanding
of what might be involved to transform it into your new home, we can help.
 
Sizing  and placement of an addition is a minefield in Greenwich
and involves a myriad of departments and approvals... variances even.

There are also many "hidden" exemptions to take advantage of.

Knowledge of the local regulations is everything.

Then together we can establish a preliminary cost analysis,
so you can make an informed decision regarding the total cost of your vision.

If you are in the planning stages of an alteration, addition or new construction ….
Then now is the time to contact us.
We can help you with initial research to navigate the regulatory minefield.

Once you have decided to move forward, we will take over the permit process
and deal with all appropriate Town Departments.

Once permitted, Baumeister Inc. will handle the entire construction
and interior build-out to Certificate of Occupancy and move-in conditions.

 


 

 

Hello - my name is Ferdinand Steyer.
 
I am the owner and President of Baumeister Inc.

It was in my mid-twenties when I first came to America from Austria.

Eventually decided to stay and become an American Citizen.

Much so to the disappointment of my family, since I was the last of a long line of "Tischler Meister" or Master Carpenters. I had apprenticed with my father who had apprenticed with his father and so on for at least five generations that I can trace. 
 I was supposed to carry on the family tradition in our shop in Vienna, however, American felt like home. 

I started my first American company called "F. Steyer Design" in Greenwich, CT.
 

During that time, I worked with most of the prominent architects in Manhattan and indeed all over the country, designing and executing projects for the “Rich & Famous”. 
I earned many awards such as in "Custom Home" magazine, "New Yorker" magazine, and many write-ups, for example in "Architectural Digest", " Fortune" magazine and many others.

Based on the urging of my family, I sold my business intending to move back to Austria.

In possession of a one-way ticket, having arranged for international moving services and driving around with shipping cartons in my car,
I had a change of mind.
I couldn’t leave my chosen Homeland.

I took on a position with General Electric
as VP – Manager Strategic Product Development.
 

I was in charge of major office build-outs across North America
and Canada.

These projects were all in the multi-million-dollar range.

During my tenure at GE I earned the prestigious
“Thomas Edison Award for Innovation”
as well as 5 industry related patents.

After five years in “Corporate America” I decided that it was time to work for myself again.

Since then I have completed many different residential projects from renovating a 200-Year-old Farmhouse, addition/renovations to complete tear-downs and new construction.

My extensive knowledge and contacts with local regulatory departments are of great benefit to my clients to obtain permits, variances at local and State levels and Certificates of Occupancy.
