Director of Preconstruction & Scheduling / Life Science

Ryan Gentile

What is your favorite project you worked on and why?
While it’s tough not to pick the many life sciences projects I’ve enjoyed being a part of, I’ll have to go with the 2008 Fenway Park Capital Improvements Project I worked on as an intern while still in college. Working on a true Boston landmark on the heels of a world series victory was a very cool experience (free passes to opening day was an added perk).

How did you get into construction?
My father has a residential construction business and I first started going to work with him at 5 years old to see a concrete truck in person (and also to get out of my mother’s hair) and I haven’t looked back since.

What is one thing on your bucket list and will you accomplish it?
I would like to get back to Iceland someday to see the northern lights in person (we visited in the spring when the sun virtually never goes down). Would just need to find the time to go once our daughter is old enough for international travel.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I once made a crazy chip shot off the rocks around a water hazard to save par at a member/guest golf tournament.
