Over 25 years of experience managing complex, technical projects within Life Sciences.
Over the course of Jason’s career, he has served some of the top life science companies in the country. He has an immense understanding of research and development, manufacturing, supply chain facilities, and operations, which has given him the ability to provide clients a valuable perspective during design, construction, commissioning, and qualification.
His experience includes build-outs of specialized laboratories, cGMP (manufacturing, warehouses, packaging/labeling facilities). His signature project was the “first-ever” ground-up commercial cGMP manufacturing facility that incorporated extensive single-use technology.
At one point, Jason worked on the client-side and has shared his lessons learned with the rest of his team. When executing projects, Jason’s team analyzes situations from the Owner’s perspective which allows them to be a more effective, and true partner throughout the construction process. Once clients work with Jason and his team, they turn into long-term relationships.
How did you get into Construction and Life Sciences?
At an early age, I was drawn to construction. My father owned a small residential development company where I worked throughout my childhood and I also was fascinated with bridges and tunnels. This is what drove me to pursue degrees in Civil Engineering and Engineering Management at Clarkson University. My first job was with a heavy and highway construction company where I worked on projects that included renovating a 100-year old swing bridge and the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel. I also worked on the Big Dig’s South Boston Interchange Project which is the tunnel structure below the Seaport District. From there I transitioned into life sciences as a Superintendent where my first ever project was building a cGMP manufacturing facility. I had so much fun, I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
Who, living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with the most? And why?
Both of my grandfathers, who both died at an early age. My mother’s father, whom I never met, raised five daughters and female a dog. He was a successful commercial artist in California who later owned art galleries in Monterey and Carmel. My father’s father passed away when I was very young. I have vivid memories of fishing with him off the docks where I grew up. These memories always stuck with me because he only had one arm because the other one was lost in a paper mill accident. He was a jack of all trades who owned his own well drilling business. If I could have dinner with them, I would want to learn more about their childhood, what they endured, and how they were able to juggle owning their own businesses while raising their families.
