How Long have you been in the Modular Industry and what roles have you held? I started in the modular construction industry a few years after retiring from the United States Air Force. In July of 2007, I accepted a position at Williams Scotsman and put together A-Z turnkey estimates from site work to the modular building installation. I left Williams Scotsman, and in January of 2012 joined Modular Genius as a site superintendent for a classified modular building project. After completion of this project I moved to newly formed estimating position and assist the sales and business development team putting together bid proposals from start to finish. While construction estimating is my focus at Modular Genius, I also create initial project schedules, write scopes of work, speak with sub-contractors, and perform site visits as needed. Sometimes I want to get my hands dirty and I assist with project punch out items if I am onsite. Although having recently relocated to North Carolina my primary role is still focused on the projects Modular Genius is bidding and awarded, always ensuring a successful project is delivered to the customer from start to finish.
Favorite/ Interesting Project I think that one of the most interesting and first major project that I worked on during my 12 years in the industry was one that I estimated and coincidentally was site superintendent on. The customer was the Naval Hospital at Bethesda, MD and was the first multi-million dollar project that I had been part of. The project involved a temporary 28,000 SF two-story, hospital grade medical clinic that sat on a helical pier system to be used as a swing space while the main hospital was undergoing a major add-on and renovation which occurred over a 3-year period. It had a physical therapy area, numerous exam rooms, doctors’ offices, nurse’s stations, and medical staff offices. Working on this project with Greg Bichell, who is also works at Modular Genius, was a great experience and I learned a lot during the course of it.
Hobbies In my free time you can find me on my boat, the golf course, shooting at the gun range, or doing projects around the house.
