Paul is another member of the Quality One Solutions Inc. team that has been around from the start. His expertise is not in hospitality, it is in project and process management which is most valuable when analyzing data from inspections, and that's just part of what Paul brings to the team.
Paul also works with the Hardy Corporation in Birmingham, Al as a Project Manager. At Hardy, Paul typically manages Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) scopes for new construction processes. His focus is normally on large scale commercial projects ranging from retail and office space to large structures in the government sector. As a project manager he is responsible for taking jobs large and small from start to finish, which includes early estimating to bidding and finally closeout. Its precisely this kind of hands on experience that Paul brings to the team and serves our clients best.
Prior to moving to the Hardy Corporation, Paul worked for eight years as a Project Engineer for M&E Contractors in Richmond Va. With M&E he managed HVAC, plumbing and electrical scopes for new construction projects. He managed projects of all sizes and scopes in commercial environments, managing all aspects of the jobs including logistics and supplies support required.
Paul earned his BS in Mechanical Engineering from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va. While at Tech his focus and main areas of interest were in thermodynamics, acoustics and vibrations. It was at an alumni event that he met his wife Barbara who is a graduate student at the University of Alabama. The couple is currently expecting their first child, due in August.
