Meet Dean Lawson, VP of Construction for View 360. Dean is part of the company’s foundation. For more than 20 years, Dean has worked side by side with CEO Dale Edwards-El to build a construction company that is reliable, resourceful and respected. As the eyes, ears and hands on site, Dean is proactive and accountable in exercising all the key duties of a construction manager. He has the exacting ability to organize, coordinate, supervise and run all the field work, while managing risk, budget and timelines, and keeping key parties informed.



View 360 Construction CEO Dale Edwards-EL still remembers the inspiration that led him to build a construction company whose quality and expertise are recognized and respected by New York City developers.

As a teen, intrigued by a successful architect he saw on tv and growing up in architecturally rich New York City, his interest grew. While in college, this interest led to a job as an architect’s assistant.
