Mason Radkoff


Senior Associate

With over 25 years of experience as a carpenter, cabinetmaker, construction administrator, and, more recently, novelist, Mason brings a unique perspective to the profession. With a keen eye for detail and frank understanding of real-world construction challenges, Mason works closely with contractors, material vendors, and the design team to elicit graceful, high-caliber work. His direct, hands-on construction experience comprises both commercial and residential projects, including historical restoration, and the replication of period woodwork.

Mason’s primary role at Strada is in construction administration, where he believes that genial working relationships among ownership, contractors, and the design team prove beneficial to all. In performing his work, he considers clear communication, foresight, organization, and promptness to be paramount. These high standards come to enrich nearly every Strada project, as Mason regularly mentors younger staff members on construction details and documentation.

Mason also spearheads Strada’s efforts in shepherding projects through LEED certification, and has successfully authored numerous Innovation in Design credits.

Clients and consultants who have been struck by the incisive narration in Mason’s correspondence and field reports will not be surprised to learn about his other life as a serious writer. His debut novel, The Heart of June, was published in autumn of 2013 by Braddock Avenue Books. Mason’s second novel is currently in progress, and he is likely thinking about it right now…
