Meet BJ, Project Manager
BJ joined the Venture General Contracting team in the fall of 2014, and brings nearly a decade of commercial construction experience in the Seattle area to his role as Superintendent. Having grown up in a construction family where he was baptized to the jobsite at an early age, he has worked on such iconic Seattle projects as the Pike Place Market Renovation, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center – Cancer Care Expansion, and the 24-story Viktoria Apartments on 2nd Avenue.
His former roles have included MEP Engineer, Project Manager, Project Engineer and BIM Coordinator, and his hands-on nature eventually led him to his current role as Superintendent. He enjoys being part of a team and working towards a greater goal; embracing the challenges and roles involved in construction projects; and building relationships along the way.BJ earned a bachelor’s in science from the Michigan State University Construction Management Program and moved to the great Pacific Northwest shortly afterwards.
When he is not working he divides his time between his 110-year old house renovation and relaxing along the Teanaway River with his wife and family. He is a rabid Michigan State fan and believes that March Madness should be a national holiday. Sparty On!
BJ's favorite Venture project to date has hands down been IMS Health
