Robert LiMandri, the city’s former Department of Buildings commissioner, will soon start work at Flatiron District-based construction and architectural consulting firm Vidaris.

LiMandri left his government post in December at the end of Mayor Bloomberg’s administration after a five-and-a-half-year stint. He will now serve as senior principal at Vidaris, heading up business development and operations. The firm focuses its consulting on environmentally-friendly projects involving the design of a building’s façade, as well as renovations and other construction work.

“There’s a huge potential for growth of this business,” LiMandri told Crain’s. “More people care about energy usage and they care about trying to do a better job for the environment.”

His position at the Department of Buildings has yet to be filled. [Crain’s]Mark Maurer
