Mike Robarge

Project Manager

Joined Columbia in 2020

With nearly ten years of experience in the construction industry, Mike has successfully managed a range of projects from the renovation of existing offices, labs, and bathrooms to ground up construction of radar testing facilities. Mike, who says he enjoys using the term “life time student” because he believes there is truly a never ending amount knowledge to be gained, enjoys how each project pushes him to work with, and learn from, the people around him in order to be successful. As a Project Manager in our Life Sciences Division, he is responsible for the overall construction management process and ensuring deliverables and project specific goals are met with a “client first” approach. Known by his co-workers for his energetic and passionate approach to managing, Mike takes is work seriously, but he also understands the importance of keeping the mood light.

As an outdoors lover, Mike stays active outside of the office fishing, camping, hiking, hunting, boating, and skiing - pretty much any activity you can do outdoors - he will try. He also enjoys spending time with his large family, and since they are all local that means they see each other a lot – even the four-legged family members.
