Bryan was hired as a Senior Project Manager and brings over 15 years of experience in the construction industry. He graduated from Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) and has had the pleasure of teaching his Superintendency there with an old collegue. He has been a part of the Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) since 2017 which is a program/committee where a group of talented and experienced construction professionals aid in guiding CCSU through understanding what the industry is so that they can better facilitate and assist the students in their careers.
Bryan comes from a family that have construction background – his father and grandfather both also have their own business which influenced Bryan to get into the construction industry. He worked for his father’s construction company and went from sanding down jigs to framing for a couple of summers.
Bryan loves the challenge and the complexities of construction management; he enjoys that each job is different. There are only two or three things that are same on each project, the start, middle and end” and everything else is different i.e., geographically municipality wise, material time of the year etc.
With his experience with procurement and purchasing – it has allowed him to understand certain higher level of aspects that go behind it i.e. where you get your info, what type of questions to ask, getting your research etc. when you bid you have to do the same thing and weigh out your options. Also just asking simple questions, like the famous Wayne Gretzky once said- “You miss one hundred percent of the shots you don’t take,” meaning just ask questions you the worse that can happen is they say no. So he was able to adopt that methodology in his construction career.
