Prism Capital Partners has added a vice president of construction to support its growing pipeline of ground-up projects.
Edward Mislavsky, a veteran industry executive, will work closely with Senior Vice President of Construction Services Robert L. Gibson, focusing on design and construction oversight for Prism’s commercial projects and assist with acquisition coordination and due diligence, according to a news release. He brings three decades of experience to the newly created role, which responds to sustained activity for the Nutley-based firm.
“I have a deep appreciation and passion for the opportunities that exist to deliver projects and on stakeholder expectations,” Mislavsky said. “The complexities of Prism’s projects and property acquisitions makes this a challenging and exciting opportunity, and I am looking forward to working with the distinguished team at Prism to deliver outstanding results.”
Among Mislavsky’s immediate priorities will be the build-to-suit medical office building set to break ground in Clifton at Prism’s flagship ON3 campus. The firm has preleased the 80,000-square-foot facility to Hackensack Meridian Health, which already occupies academic and research and development space at the 116-acre property.
Construction of the new ambulatory care center — which will include surgical facilities as well as additional multispecialty practice areas — is expected to begin imminently.
“Ed’s high-powered expertise in both the public and private sector and his impressive track record of success make him a valuable addition to our construction management team,” said Prism’s Eugene Diaz, a principal partner. “The diversity of his experience positions him to offer a fresh perspective for our current project pipeline as well as future acquisition initiatives.”
Prior to joining Prism, Mislavsky was a principal of The FERMA Group, where he provided project oversight and management and dispute resolution services to multi-industry clients, the news release said. Most recently, he led the project management office for the Super Nintendo World project at Universal Studios Japan.
Prior to that assignment, Mislavsky provided planning and dispute resolution services on other Universal Studios projects, having led complex historic restorations of The Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank and Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown, New York.
He began his career overseeing power generation and process plant construction projects, Prism said. As a principal for the Project Planning Group, he worked with project owners to deliver capital projects in the education, leisure and entertainment industries, with clients including Sony Entertainment and Walt Disney Imagineering.
Later, as project executive for Harrah’s Entertainment, Mislavsky led the design and construction of the Boat to Barge Casino Conversion project in Joliet, Illinois, and the rebranding of properties in Council Bluffs, Iowa, the news release said. Later, as vice president of Meridian Consulting Group/HOV Services, he focused on troubled projects management for surety industry clients, including the restoration of the John Adams Courthouse in Boston.
