Shawmut Design and Construction


What was your greatest professional achievement or most notable project in the last 12 months? My most notable project over the last year was the renovation of Boston City Hall Plaza, which celebrated its reopening last November. The project transformed the seven-acre plaza to bring universal accessibility, sustainability, and community space for all residents and visitors. I joined the team as an assistant project manager and really enjoyed working with a great group of talented builders on an influential project that will be enjoyed for generations to come. 

How are you involved in community organizations and/or charities? I have been involved in the ACE Mentor Program of Greater Boston since 2016, which introduces high school students to careers in architecture, engineering, and construction management. I first joined as a high school student interested in a potential career in the industry and have been privileged to return to the organization now as board member and alumni committee co-chair. It’s extremely rewarding to not only give back to an organization that helped me get my start in my career, but also helps to introduce the next generation to a career in the ACE fields.
