Meet KBR’s “Dream Team”

We may never receive a ticker tape parade down the canyon of heroes, but we’ll settle for the happiest fan base in all of NYC:

Yosi Nahmani

Apartment Whisperer

A leader by example, a master builder at heart. When Yosi walks into a NYC home, his eyes come alive, seeing all the myriad possibilities. Where you see a cocoon, Yosi sees a butterfly. Twenty five years of construction, renovation and design experience goes into each and every KBR project. How? Because Yosi is on every single KBR job-site! Yosi is our general on the front lines and in the trenches, not above getting down and dirty if need be, from plumbing fixtures to floor tiles and countertops, Yosi rolls up his sleeves everyday and ensures that all KBR projects are performed perfectly.

Zak Van Buren

Director of Misc. Stuff

When you're looking to renovate your home it's nice to have someone on board who has seen literally every option under the sun. While Zak has worked, lived and taught in many international cities, perhaps it is his expansive traveling, to some 49 different nation states, which contributes most to his aesthetic repertoire. A native New Yorker, at heart and by birthright, a lifetime spent in New York City apartments, lofts and commercial spaces means that no one is more conversant with the particularities and sometimes peculiarities involved in a New York City renovation project. Zak Van Buren holds a Ph.D in Sustainable Development and has spearheaded KBR's Sustainable Design / Demolition and Materials initiative.
