KARL SANDMAN

SENIOR PROJECT MANAGER

 

HIS ROLE

Karl is responsible for every aspect of construction projects from estimating to close-out. He works closely with clients, architects, subcontractors and vendors to develop comprehensive schedules and realistic budgets, and will then guide the team to deliver quality projects while meeting these expectations.

HIS BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE

The process of building mesmerized Karl from a young age. His older brother worked in construction, which gave him great insight into the industry and solidified his career path. Karl graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management and spent time working in the construction industry in Chicago and Southern California before relocating to the Bay Area.  His range of experience encompasses sophisticated and fast-paced commercial interiors, ground-up buildings and infrastructure projects.

HIS MANAGEMENT STYLE

Karl believes that to be a true leader you must be dependent, honest and trustworthy. Be the person that you would want to work with and try to make the experience fun for your colleagues. He believes that emerging construction professionals should take the time to visit jobsites, learn from the superintendents and tradesmen and ask questions along the way.  Nothing beats that hands-on experience.

HIS INTERESTS & HOBBIES

Outside of work, Karl enjoys a variety of hobbies including fly-fishing, bow hunting, skiing, golf and camping. He enjoys cooking, traveling with his wife and listening to live music. As a Chicago native, he will always remain a die-hard Bears, Sox and Blackhawks fan.
