Assistant Project Manager
Melissa came to Firmo with more than 12 years of construction experience, with focuses in estimating & project management, and specializing in managing risk and striking the perfect balance between quality and cost. Her multifaceted skillset allows her to work closely with the estimating department to ensure projects are within budget, while also providing on-site field support to guarantee projects are finished on time. Her strengths lie in working with other construction personnel as well as in-house design staff to facilitate proper management of commercial construction projects, often on a fast-track basis. Melissa is also responsible for contract management, construction scheduling, subcontractor coordination, Owner relations, quality assurance and enforcement of safety policies.
Her passion for construction started with accepting a position as a Division Administrator at a Geotechnical Engineering Firm. There, she worked her way to become promoted to Project Manager to manage subsurface exploration projects and work alongside the drill crews. Missy's next venture was leading Capital Improvement Projects for Verizon as Cushman & Wakefield’s Junior Project Manager. During her with the team, she managed facility maintenance projects for the entire Northeast region for projects spanning multiple years as well as smaller improvement projects. Returning to the civil construction facet of the industry next, Missy spearheaded estimates and project engineering initiatives for large diameter drilling and shoring excavation projects for a geotechnical contractor. Throughout her career, she most notably assisted in spearheading a multi-million-dollar facade project for Verizon during her time at Cushman and Wakefield.
