ADAM CHELINI

VICE PRESIDENT

 

HIS ROLE

Adam is responsible for the oversight and management of Skyline’s North Bay projects and teams. He maintains client relationships, oversees field personnel, monitors jobsite safety and ensures that each project team runs successful projects for our clients.

HIS BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE

Adam’s career in construction started long before he decided to pursue construction management at Chico State. Throughout high school, he worked with his father in construction as a carpenter. At the time, he did not intend for that job to turn into a career: “I was studying marine biology,” Adam said. “It wasn’t until I saw a buddy of mine going to Cal Poly for Construction Management that it finally clicked. I gave Chico State a call and was enrolled two weeks later.”

HOW HE LANDED AT SKYLINE

Adam found Skyline while working for another general contractor in the area. He knew Skyline would be a good fit after learning the strategy and vision that CEO David Hayes had in place. Adam joined Skyline in 2002 as a Sr. Project Manager. Through the years he has grown and developed a highly successful team of construction professionals who are equipped to build sophisticated, complex and large-scale corporate interiors.

HIS MANAGEMENT STYLE

Adam teaches the full spectrum of construction and wants each employee to have a well-rounded understanding of construction principles: “I like to teach them the ‘why’ and not just the ‘how.’” He is especially skilled with project financials and scheduling, and trains his employees to think through every detail in the preconstruction phase of the project to ensure success during construction.
