Assistant Project Manager
December 15th, 2018
Born and raised in Haiti, Muzalier Gaussaint moved with his family to Brooklyn, New York at the age of 17. In an attempt to make friends and learn the language quickly, Muzalier turned to books and art where he first discovered his interest in building and design. It was this passion that eventually led him to study architecture at Philadelphia University.
At the beginning of his final year in architecture school, he attended an alumni dinner where he met Phil Borst, owner of Scungio Borst Construction Management. After hearing Phil’s background in architecture and construction, Muzalier decided that being the builder, and not just the designer, was his ideal path.
Five years later, Muzalier is now an assistant project manager at Scungio Borst Associates. He has worked on many different projects with his favorite being The Curtis Center Atrium (pictured above). “The Atrium is my favorite project because of its logistical complexity and schedule coordination. Due to the aerial nature of the Construction, It involved researching and selecting the right aerial equipment to meet load-bearing capacity and height requirements for the work while balancing the load capacity of the marble floors.”
According to Will Elia, Senior Project Manager, Muzalier has the ideal attitude for managing the more difficult projects. “Muzalier is a great asset to our project team. No matter what, he has a way of remaining calm and staying focused on the objective. This attitude is ideal for a construction site because it has a way of rubbing off on the rest of the team. ”.
Muzalier now lives in Elkins Park with his two cats, Neo & Trinity. In his spare time, you’ll find him studying to earn his architecture license or playing on various soccer teams. He’s also very involved with the National Organization of Minority Architects and the Construction Management Association of America.
