As Senior Preconstruction Manager at Columbia, Matt collaborates with owners, architects, engineers and subcontractors to plan and budget their dream buildings. Matt is involved in projects early on in the design phase and serves as a consultant not only on cost, but constructability, scheduling, and logistics. He believes in helping clients get the most "bang for their buck." Working with his fellow teammates, Matt enjoys figuring out how a space will look and function, while adhering to a project’s budget. A career highlight for Matt, was being a part of the team that installed a life-size fiberglass hippopotamus in the lobby of the new headquarters for Potamus Trading. Matt’s colleagues are quick to describe him as hardworking, reliable, and accurate, so it comes as no surprise that making a client happy is Matt’s number one job priority.
Out of the office Matt likes to spend time with his wife enjoying his own home-brew on tap, which is conveniently located in his kitchen. Prior to his career in construction, Matt had serious aspirations to be a drummer in a rock n’ roll band. Fortunately for Columbia, he has come a long way from his sixth grade class where he was voted most likely to become a basketball mascot.
