Adolfson & Peterson Construction, a national construction management firm, is launching a special projects division to focus on construction projects of less than $5 million with tight deadlines in occupied spaces or facilities.
Special Projects Manager, Mehul Mistry, joined AP Southwest to lead the new division, which won its inaugural project bid from the Kyrene School District for weatherization improvements to Mariposa, Manitas, Esperanza and Lagos elementary schools.
According to a press release, Adolfson & Peterson reached substantial completion on the approximately $923,855 project at the end of August, removing existing joint sealants, prepping existing building and site walls for new sealants, installing sealants, providing new metal roof caps and repairing existing site fencing.
“AP has done smaller jobs for owners, users and districts in the region for decades. By launching this new division, we’ll have a team committed to these unique projects while still having the capacity to bid on and manage larger builds,” said Scott Salyer, vice president of operations in a prepared statement.
“Mehul has deep experience estimating and managing projects of this size, and we’re confident he’ll do a great job of building out this part of our job mix.”
With more than a decade of construction experience, Mistry has worked on a wide range of projects including expansion and renovation work in the K-12, retail, entertainment and health-care sectors, as well as commercial tenant improvement and residential remodeling projects.
Most recently, Mistry served as a project manager with Katerra and as an assistant project manager with A.R. Mays Construction. He holds a bachelor’s degree in construction management with a specialty in architectural design from California State University – Fresno.
“AP has a solid reputation for building long-term relationships with clients, and we’re always looking for new ways to serve them,” said Mistry. “By focusing on smaller projects with both current and prospective clients, we’ll be able to provide quality tenant improvement, renovation, expansion and repair services on a job-order-contract basis and expand our presence in the region.”
