A strategic trade partner of JE Dunn. 
Aptitude is JE Dunn’s premier trade partner in building connectivity, focusing on every discipline and function of buildings—allowing owners, operators, and occupants alike to get the most value out of their built environments. 

The link between building design, construction, and operations.

Aptitude brings together people, places, and technology—leveraging the insight and experience of over a century in design-build, a transformative development process, and the most powerful technology available. The result is the delivery of a connected built environment, one made of a virtuous cycle of efficiencies and smart decisions for our clients and everyone using their spaces.  

We call this Intelligent Integration.
