Meet the Team

In his 2007 groundbreaking book on the construction industry, Broken Buildings, Busted Budgets, Barry LePatner articulated a comprehensive macro-economic critique of the construction industry, which asserted that owners must rebalance the asymmetry of pricing information favoring contractors if they were to regain control of their projects. As the result of this research and his more than three decades of experience as legal counsel for owners, design professionals and the construction industry, the underpinning concepts of Arazoo were developed.

Barry LePatner and co-founder Brad Cronk have developed Arazoo to advance the ideas and project management principles that they have applied to the hundreds of projects on which they have acted as legal counsel, project manager or both. Arazoo represents the culmination of their combined experience of nearly 60 years in the design and construction industry. The Arazoo Product Selection module is the first step to overcome the industry'€™s well-known inefficiencies that lead to marketplace opacity and rampant cost overruns. And the next steps for Arazoo are already in development.
