What is an alternative expression for "Considering the fact that"?

To understand the context, please consider the following sentence:

"Considering the fact that mixed-use buildings were new at the time, it seems appropriate that the builders came from different backgrounds and industries."

  • "Considering that mixed-use buildings were new at the time, it seems appropriate that the builders came from different backgrounds and industries." You don't need "the fact". OR "Given that mixed-use buildings were new at the time, it seems appropriate that the builders came from different backgrounds and industries." – Richard Kayser Nov 1 '16 at 3:05
  • Simply "considering", or "given that", or "understanding that", or "with the knowledge that", or "knowing that". – Hot Licks Nov 1 '16 at 3:20

One alternative is to omit *the fact" and use considering that:

"Considering that mixed-use buildings were new at the time, it seems appropriate that the builders came from different backgrounds and industries."

Another alternative is given that:

"Given that mixed-use buildings were new at the time, it seems appropriate that the builders came from different backgrounds and industries."

Yet another alternative is in that:

"In that mixed-use buildings were new at the time, it seems appropriate that the builders came from different backgrounds and industries."

I would suggest the single word Since to replace Considering the fact that:

Since mixed-use buildings were new at the time, it seems appropriate that the builders came from different backgrounds and industries.

  • My first thought was "as" and was about to add an answer when I saw this. (Also, because should work). +1. – alwayslearning Nov 1 '16 at 14:43
