San Francisco (November 19, 2012) – BCCI Construction Company (BCCI), the Bay Area’s premier commercial contractor, is pleased to announce the growth of its team. Just months after renewing the lease of its Palo Alto office as part of its commitment to the region and in anticipation of continued market growth—BCCI continues to expand its San Francisco and Palo Alto offices.
Recognized as the Bay Area’s most forward-looking construction company, BCCI has selected highly experienced individuals with distinct areas of expertise to complement each of the company’s key divisions. Areas of expansion include sustainability and project management, where the additions of Aron Bosworth, LEED AP, and Lisa Szmurlo, LEED AP, respectively, reflect the company’s focused commitment to these important client services. Meanwhile, the addition of Project Engineers Laith Assaf, Peter DiBono, and Tina Hui, Assistant Project Manager Greg A. Jackson, and Senior Project Manager Damon S. Grose reflect BCCI’s continued market growth.
“This talented group will elevate the experienced, skilled team we already have at BCCI,” said Michael Scribner, President of BCCI Construction. “We are pleased that we are continuing to grow our firm with team members who share our commitment to quality and professionalism.”
Aron Bosworth is a LEED Accredited Professional who joins Director of Sustainability Alex Spilger, LEED AP, in key sustainability leadership and team expertise for BCCI’s green building projects. Bosworth comes to BCCI with over five years of sustainability advising and LEED certification management experience, during which he managed more than twenty-five LEED projects spanning the LEED for Commercial Interiors, New Construction and Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance rating systems. In addition to project management, he also has experience providing educational training on the successful implementation of LEED. He has taught workshops to San Diego Gas & Electric, architecture firm Portico Group in Seattle, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) – Northern California Chapter in the Bay Area, and USGBC – LA, The Gas Company, and AIA – Pasadena Foothills Chapter in the Los Angeles area.

Prior to joining BCCI, Szmurlo served as a project architect at Gensler, where she collaborated with BCCI on a number of tenant improvements in the Bay Area including Gensler headquarters, Bingham & McCutchen, The Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation and the Rogers Family Foundation. Her experience on the design side, and now on the construction side, allows her to bring a truly unique perspective to each project. Szmurlo’s particular expertise will help BCCI further streamline the preconstruction and construction process and deliver the consistently innovative solutions to the company’s clients.
