Avi Polischuk is a construction project expert and owner of R&S United Services, an accomplished mechanical contractor serving the New York region. A member of the Mechanical Contractors Association, Avi Polischuk has managed over $100 million in projects and has been involved in high profile projects, including the Leonard Tribeca luxury high rise tower in New York City.

Located at 56 Leonard Street, the Leonard Tribeca luxury high rise tower is one of the most architecturally celebrated buildings in New York City. Designed by internationally renowned architect Herzog & De Meuron and the design engineering firm Consentini Associates, the tower filled with luxury condominiums rises over 800 feet tall and features 700,000 square feet of space.

R&S United Services was awarded the Leonard Tribeca project in August of 2012 through a competitive process. The firm worked with the construction managers and designers over a six-month period to propose innovative engineering solutions to improve the final building. In addition to designing a state of the art chilled water plant to reduce the HVAC footprint, R&S also decreased the required space for HVAC systems to provide additional real estate space to the building owners.
