John Critch is an accomplished Construction Management Professional with more than 20 years of journeyman, supervision, and management experience. He is seasoned in managing complex projects with cost, schedule, and time critical components for public, private, and industrial clients both domestic and international. John’s construction knowledge, management skills, owner’s representation abilities, and construction defect analysis experience are a benefit to our clients.
John got his start in the construction industry as a carpenter/mason in the U.S. Navy Seabees where he learned the inner workings of a typical construction site and how to manage crews. After earning his degree in Construction Engineering and Management, he quickly transitioned into the project management discipline where he has been involved in all facets of the construction process to include strategic planning, design development, conceptual modeling, estimating, RFP/RFQ development/management, contract negotiations, subcontractor negotiation/award, project scheduling, subcontractor management, cost management, staff selection, and all duties related to project management.
John’s depth of expertise has also been greatly enhanced by his many years of service as an active duty Navy Officer with the U.S. Navy Civil Engineer Corps (CEC). During his time in the CEC he served as Project Engineer, Construction Project Manager, Base Master Planner, and Base Public Works Officer. He quickly gained notoriety among his peers and subordinates as the go-to subject matter expert in situations that required a unique construction approach or an “out of the box” management process, most notably in certain situations where the construction means and methods of other nations aren’t quite to the level of the standards practiced here in North America. His meticulous tactics were evident on projects around the world in such places as Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Vieques, Hawaii, UAE, Afghanistan, and countless others.
