Micah’s construction career began in 2003 after graduating from Oregon State University with B.S. in Construction Management from the school of Construction Engineering & Management. He was then hired by a large commercial construction firm to work as a Project Engineer in their Sacramento, CA office. He quickly grew through the ranks and was promoted to a Project Manager within one year after the initial hire. During this time he worked on small demo projects, site upgrade projects and new ground up projects that ranged from $200,000-$13M. Additionally, he was also considered the “go to" Project Manager to work on numerous expansions and remodels of existing facilities due to his extensive coordination and communication skills that helped maintain an efficient and streamline project.
In 2010, Micah relocated back to Portland to begin work for a local General Contractor to work as a Project Manager. During his tenure with the company he worked on a multitude of projects ranging from small Tenant Improvement projects, new ground up and design build projects that ranged from $50,000.00 to $10M. As with the previous company he was now considered the “go to" guy for all design builds that were awarded. Micah worked successfully on multiple design build projects from the initial schematic design all the way through to the on time construction completion and turnover of the project.
Over the 15 year career in the construction field, Micah has gained great understanding in all aspects of construction. This ranges from feasibility of construction, design, estimating, scheduling/coordinating, contract review, buyout/negotiating, writing contracts, delivery and procurement, submittals, RFI’s, change orders, cost/budget management, review and approval of subcontractor pay applications, Owner pay applications, quality assurance, value engineering, acquiring permits, closeout and warranty items. Micah is a valuable member of the NWM team and critical manager of our construction project monitoring processes.
