I am a Construction professional for Heavy Civil, Building Renovation and New Building construction, Industrial, Transportation, airport, infrastructure, process plant, utility plant, structural steel, and concrete construction projects in the United States and International locations. I have a track record of successful management of all phases of Industrial, mechanical, utility, petroleum storage and distribution, earthwork, heavy commercial, and institutional buildings. I have completed major new construction and renovation including structural and code compliant upgrades, ADA, tenant re-fit, to include renovation of operating facilities with nominal disruption to the on-going operations.
I have significant experience with institutional, office, heavy commercial, industrial buildings, reinforced concrete, structural steel, and logistics. My government experience has included Navy and Army base building renovation and new construction, laboratory, classroom, multifamily housing and quarters, airport, lighting, building, estimating, and material management. This included pre-construction (estimating, design review, project start-up) and construction activities (safety, quality control, schedule, operations, and cost).
My experience has developed from a solid understanding of Engineering, my highest regard for the safety for the project, a desire to produce the highest Quality of work, accurate schedule development and management, and an inherent knowledge of operational activities for cost control. I have managed projects and operations on major projects from Millions of Dollars to $800 million with 75% of the projects based on Lump Sum, Firm Fixed Price Contracts.
My Degree is in Engineering and physical sciences (University of Maryland) with a concentration in foundation engineering and transportation and advanced studies in Foundations and Construction Management. I have held a TS Security Clearance with no issues to encumber a renewal. I will relocate as required on a temporary or permanent basis.
