Starting his career as a field engineer and working his way up to operations manager, Jeff gained a wealth of experience in client relations, estimating, project document control, subcontractor procurement, cost management, and overall operational strategy.  Because 90% of the projects Jeff managed were design-build, he was able to amass considerable knowledge as to the design aspects and value engineering advantages in the logistics, process, and manufacturing markets.
