Boston – Peter Feinmann, president and founder of Feinmann, Inc., was awarded “Mentor of the Year” at Boston Design Week’s 2024 award celebration. Held on May 4, the event was hosted by the Boston Architectural College and sponsored by Shepley Bulfinch.

“Mentoring has been a powerful practice for me, and I truly appreciate this honor…just teach those in our industry, it’s so easy to do,” said Feinmann.

Feinmann has streamlined the design-build process at Feinmann, Inc., and representatives say he has been instrumental in defining the cost and control advantages of the design-build process while demonstrating creative and inspired solutions.

He has served as mentor of the PRO NE Mentorship Program, and in 2023, was distinguished as PRO NE Mentor of the Year. He has also been an active mentor in the PRO NE Youth Remodeling Career Day.
