Dick has spent his entire working life in the construction industry. At API, Dick oversees the management of API’s architectural precast concrete projects. He reviews and executes subcontracts with our customers, awards subcontracts to lower tier trades, and works closely with architectural and structural blueprints as well as API generated precast erection and detail drawings. Dick works carefully with API’s precast engineers to insure our precast meets the architectural design and structural requirements of each job. He prepares schedules of values, tracks changes in scope of supply and work, orders material, and creates change orders and invoices. He prepares submittals of product data, testing reports and samples according to project specifications, prepares project schedules using FastTrack software, and works closely with API’s Production Managers to produce our product on time and within budget. Dick communicates well with customers, architects, engineers, subcontractors, vendors and general contractors and stays engaged throughout the course of each project to make sure our customers, and ultimately the owner, are happy with our product. In his free time, Dick enjoys spending time with his family, hunting and fishing.
Some of Dick’s education and training include an Associates Degree in Building Construction Technology from Williamsport Area Community College; FMI Project Manager Academy; and OSHA 10 training.
