Susan Benz

Susan Benz, AIA, is known for her leadership in project management for significant construction projects including the Topfer Theatre at ZACH, the Munday Library at St. Edward’s University, the Beach Museum of Art at Kansas State University, and Fleck Hall at St. Edward’s University. Her ability to communicate and coordinate the design process and her high priority on cost control has earned respect and confidence from clients, consultants and contractors. In addition to her thirty years of experience in the construction industry, Susan’s leadership extends to the community through her participation in AIA Austin, the UT School of Architecture Advisory Council and the East Cesar Chavez Neighborhood Planning Team.

As mentioned Ms. Benz is, indeed, a rare leader. She is resolute in her optimism, patience and subtle guidance. The end project, however, speaks best for her: it is a work of quality and beauty, on schedule and under budget. She is a delight to work with and through the project new friendships have been made. As an administrator and professor of 33 years, I give Susan Benz my unqualified and highest recommendation. At the end of the day every one will appreciate that she is "the smartest person in the room".

Tricia Miner

Tricia Miner serves as Project Manager during the construction phase of Benz Resource Group projects. She has a diverse portfolio of construction management experience, including high-rise office buildings and commercial campuses, higher-education projects, and public parks, including Discovery Green in downtown Houston. With twenty years of construction experience and contract control, Tricia is known for her ability to work in fast-paced, deadline driven environments while maintaining attention to detail.

While Discovery Green required a sophisticated approach to building a major urban development project, it also required sensitivity to the environment as evidenced by its LEED Gold rating. As a lead member of the general contractor’s team, Tricia Miner ensured that environmental considerations were always at the forefront throughout the construction process. Her hard work and concern for issues that are often low priorities during construction is a key reason why Discovery Green is such a beautiful and successful park today.
