Philip A. Santantonio, AIA
Philip A. Santantonio, AIA, co-founded KM Associates of NY with business partner Vito Gerbino in 1998, and has worked tirelessly to grow the firm to a staff of 50 employees. Phil’s extensive background includes more than 25 years of experience in expediting, building code, and zoning. He also holds a bachelor of science in architecture from the New York Institute of Technology and is a registered architect in New York State—valuable expertise that helps him understand clients’ concerns as their projects progress from design to completion.
Phil started his career as a project manager at the expediting firm Charles Rizzo & Associates, an experience that made him appreciate the legal side of the building practice. He is known for his persistence and determination in getting approvals and permits in a timely manner.
Phil believes great client relationships create solid foundations for business, so he works hard to ensure that every client is satisfied. He finds it most rewarding to see a building project come to completion and know that KM Associates helped the client get there.
Phil is a Board Member of the New York Coalition of Code Consultants, a trade organization whose members specialize in securing construction and development approvals from municipal agencies, as well as building code and zoning consulting.
