Boston, MA Matthew Bessette, an on-site construction manager with a background in vertical construction projects, and Geoffrey Wong, a document manager on MBTA Commuter Rail projects, have been promoted to project manager and project controls specialist, at City Point Partners.
In his new role within the owner’s project management group, Bessette will represent the interests of City Point Partners’ clients during all phases of development projects, ensuring that they are completed on time and under budget. Wong started out as a member of the firm’s document control team serving our clients on the MBTA’s Fitchburg Commuter Rail improvement project and the Knowledge Corridor Upgrade project, and he has since broadened his skills to include multiple supporting roles within the project controls group.
The owner’s project management practice at City Point Partners has been working on complex construction projects including the new $55.7m bus operations and maintenance facility for the Pioneer Valley Transit Authority in Springfield, Mass. and the recently completed $29.1m central research and materials laboratory for MassDOT, to name a few.
The project controls group at City Point Partners has grown steadily since it was launched in 2013. Originally serving clients in transit and transportation, the group now also serves clients in the higher education, municipal, K-12 and affordable housing market sectors.
“City Point Partners has provided me with some very valuable project experience throughout my career. I’m looking forward to working closely with our clients to design and build their capital projects,” says Bessette.
“I’m very excited to be taking on this new role with City Point Partners and to expand their project controls efforts. The firm has developed some very effective project controls tools which have helped their clients complete capital projects on time and under budget. I look forward to taking this next step with this growing firm,” said Wong.
“Both Matt and Geoffrey represent the future of our firm,” said Colleen Moore, president and founder of City Point Partners, “their service to our clients has been more than exemplary and I look forward to seeing them flourish in their new roles.”
