Andy has over 20 years of experience in the construction industry. A graduate of University of Massachusetts, Lowell with a BS in Civil Engineering, he has proven to be a strong project manager with the detailed oriented skills and the people oriented personality that it takes to lead a team through complicated, physically restricted and time driven projects. For Andy, a happy and satisfied client at the end of a job is the most important part of his work.  In addition to his strong technical knowledge, Andy has savvy problem-solving skills that help him plan and execute projects from new construction to renovations across a number of market sectors including academic, life science, and residential/housing.

Outside of the office, Andy can be found spending time with his family enjoying all sorts of outdoor activities including, river hoping in New Hampshire, spending a day at the beach, or hiking. Andy also dedicates a lot of his personal time to the Boy Scouts of America, enjoying the time he gets to spend with his sons as a Scout Leader.
