Jennifer Kapp

Zoning and Code Specialist

After completing her Bachelor of Architecture degree from the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Jennifer spent 10 years as a Construction Manager for several retail chains. Having mastered the final product, she then decided to learn the earlier steps of the process and founded Code llc with a colleague from college. Together they grew Code llc into the third largest expediting company in New York City, with over 40 employees and thousands of completed projects that ranged from townhouse renovations to ground up 40 story buildings, in every genre including residential, commercial, manufacturing and institutional. In doing so, she developed close relationships with all city agencies, especially the Building Department Commissioners, in order to achieve the approvals for her clients. She has now brought her expertise of the Building Code and Zoning Resolution of New York City, as well as a mastery of the governmental process, to MMA.




During his tenure at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and after earning his Bachelor of Architecture, Tom has spent close to Thirty Years in planning, design, construction and contract administration for a wide range of large and small-scale projects. He joined the company in early 1997 and as one of MMA’s Principals, he has been responsible for overseeing the growth and success of the educational design studio for the last two decades. His responsibilities include contract generation, establishing budgets for hard and soft costs, design consultant coordination, and overseeing construction administration and project close-out. Tom attributes his success to his attention to detail, and his ability to work effectively with all stakeholders.
