Senior Project Manager
Brian began his profession as a construction superintendent with Buestad Construction in 1989. His wealth of knowledge in all aspects of interior and exterior construction, in addition to his experience in business management and project planning, makes him a valuable member of the company. Over the years, Brian has naturally progressed from foreman to project manager, and conducts each project using his versatile skills. He successfully operated his own general contracting business for 8 years prior to coming to Buestad Construction, Inc.
Mike has been in the construction industry since 1985, first working for the family business in Maine for a number of years building small residential and commercial projects, and then working in Japan for 8 years building “American Style” homes. Mike brings valuable field experience to enable projects to run smoothly and on schedule.
While in college, Chris worked at a small hardware store, learning about construction tools and materials, and developing strong customer service skills. He earned his bachelor's degree in Geotechnical Engineering from San Francisco State University. Soon realizing that soil was not his passion, he needed to try something different. He spent 8 years as an estimator/manager for a marble and granite fabrication shop, working on high-end residential and small commercial projects in the Bay Area.
Our on-site Superintendents bring the benefit of years of "hands on" experience to our projects. They are responsible for smooth and efficient on-site job management, and supervision of both Buestad Construction employees and subcontractors. The Superintendents assure that quality work is being performed and that the project schedule is maintained. They are also responsible for the enforcement of all pertinent OSHA regulations.
Our experienced field staff consists of laborers, apprentice carpenters, journeyman carpenters, and lead carpenters.
