The Team
The Team and Studio

We are a collection of skilled builders and artists that can bring your vision to life. We harness the collective knowledge and capabilities of our team to negotiate the best possible solutions. We do this work because we love it.

Our company serves both the retail and residential communities in the design, engineering, and fabrication of fixtures, displays, pedestals, cabinetry, event displays, artwork production, and furniture, as well as providing full service installations. We also have extensive experience working with artists, galleries, art foundations, and event coordinators in New York City, the US and abroad. Bring us your ideas and we will figure out the best way to design it, build it, ship it, and install it for you.

Stand and Build was founded by Gabe Meldahl and Jason Schneider in July 2008.
