| Assistant Project Manager
“I have been driving from my home in Quincy, through the city, to our office in North Reading for a number of years, passing just about every other construction company in the Boston area on my way. I have never even thought about working elsewhere, because there is no other company as great as Columbia.”
A valued member of Columbia for over five years, Ian started in the Interiors Division focusing on high end, fast-track projects in and around Boston. Today, Ian focuses the majority of his time on our Siemens Healthineers project in Walpole. A graduate of Wentworth Institute of Technology, Ian has progressed through several positions over the years, including Assistant Project Manager, Estimator and Project Engineer. Diligent and conscientious, he thoroughly reviews estimates and assists with scheduling, procurement and inspections. The fact that Ian names his co-workers as his favorite aspect of his job is not a surprise; he is always willing to go above and beyond to help anyone who needs it.
When Ian is outside the office, he is usually literally outside. He loves outdoor activities that allow him to explore and appreciate nature, like camping and hiking. Throughout his life he has had a wide variety of pets, including two ducks and his two dogs, Henry and Leo. Currently, Ian maintains a sizable indoor plant collection including orchids, cacti, tropical plants and even a planted fish tank! He could probably go full ‘Man vs. Wild’, except that he could never give up ice cream (and we’d miss him in the office).
