Lindsey Echevarria

Known as Schimenti Construction’s “go-to person” for interactions with New York City’s Department of Buildings, Lindsey Echevarria originally started down a very different career path: criminal justice. After earning her B.S. in 2006, Lindsey began working for a pool construction company and quickly became hooked on construction’s fast pace and ever-changing environment. She was subsequently employed at Milrose Consultants, where she gained valuable knowledge and experience in working with municipalities and the NYC DOB.

“I love construction because it is amazing to see structures go from paper to fruition,” says Lindsey. “It is incredible to work together as a team and create something to be proud of and for others to share.” Since joining Schimenti Construction in March 2015, Lindsey has used her expertise on several high-profile projects, including the COS, & Other Stories and H&M stores at the World Trade Center (COS and & Other Stories are H&M brands). Other projects include Chick-fil-A restaurants (on Sixth Avenue in Manhattan and in Port Jefferson, Hicksville and the Queens Center Mall) and stores for Nike, Victoria’s Secret, Michaels, Best Buy and Aritzia. Additionally, Lindsey handles all the NYC DOB after-hours variance permits for the company.

Outside of work, Lindsey loves to spend free time doing yoga; she belongs to a yoga community and practices multiple times a week. She finds meditation is a way to provide peace of mind in preparation for a long day, and she also enjoys photography and scrapbooking. On the personal front, Lindsey and her husband, Joe, were married in March, a day she describes as “filled with love, family, friends and a whole lot of dancing!”
