Pipefitter: In high school and through college, Paul progressed from laborer and pipefitter’s helper to project manager on mechanical contracting projects in the family business. This is direct, hands on experience in how projects and equipment go together and what it really takes to get a project implemented in the field.
Mechanical Contractor: Paul worked as an engineer for a design-build mechanical contracting company and worked up to President and CEO of the company. In these capacities he personally managed and directed multimillion dollar projects with an excess of 100 tradesmen involved. In this capacity he developed in-depth knowledge of the construction industry and related trades and tradesmen relations, construction industry law and litigation and government contracting.
