I was the quality control lead and part of Michael’s team for the South Booster Pumphouse Facility.  Michael has a very extensive knowledge of project and construction management with problem solving abilities.  Equally important are his people skills.  He empowered staff, held them accountable, mentored us while encouraging us to seek solutions outside the box.  Because of his safety-focused efforts, this project was nominated for the client’s project safety award when measured against all others on-site.  If you want to solve problems and create successful projects, I recommend him for any PM position on any project and would work with him again.
