Make It Right

Dear Friends and Associates,

After nearly 20 years, MakeItRight, Inc. will be closing. Over the next 9 months, the firm will be dedicated to completing all existing and open commitments and will transition to full business closure by June 01, 2020.

TThe firm's principal and founder, Joseph La Brie, SE, has accepted a position with the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) and will begin working there on October 31, 2019. Consequently, he will no longer be able to serve as a design professional of record for projects.

Please be advised that in the coming weeks, Joe will be supplanted on all open projects by Ricardo Sangiovanni, SE. Mr. Sangiovanni has been a principal structural engineer with MakeItRight since the firm was established with all of the important qualifications to assure your projects are properly considered.

We are grateful for the years of service to our clients and are determined to make sure there is continuity of our services. Although there is no business acquisition nor any merger, all new healthcare projects will be referred to Risha Engineering. Risha Engineering (, in collaboration with MakeItRight, Inc has agreed to bring key MakeItRight personnel into its Healthcare Division to carry forward the most important aspects of the firm's production philosophies and practices.

On a personal note, it has been my distinct pleasure and privilege to have such wonderful associations with amazing people in the industry over these years. I am grateful for these relationships and look forward to working with many of you in my new role at OSHPD to make it right.


Joe La Brie, SE
