Michael Delaney, our construction division estimating manager, is something of a pioneer. Integrating deep design experience with construction expertise, he assisted with High Tech’s development and adoption of 3D design software. Michael also created proprietary estimating calculators to improve our company’s quote accuracy. At the forefront of every endeavor is Michael’s desire to improve the client experience.

Michael began his career at a small landscaping company, allowing him to build experience from the ground up. Whenever something needed doing, Michael did it—so he learned all aspects of the business.

He values this vast experience and believes it helped him analyze and organize incoming projects, communicate transparently and provide High Tech accounts with high-caliber service.

Michael’s love of landscape design led him to earn a degree from Rutgers University in 2010. Majoring in environmental planning and design with a minor in plant science, Michael also became an active member of the school’s Landscape Architecture Program. He has earned more than a dozen certifications in landscape specialties, landscaping software and 3D technologies. Key certifications and industry education include:
