Seattle, WA, October 12th, 2021 – BNBuilders welcomes Colum Cronin to the team as a Project Executive serving the Bay Area. Mr. Cronin brings over 15 years of experience overseeing large, technically complex projects for many high-profile tech and life science clients including Amgen, Genentech, Gilead Sciences, Novartis, and Bayer. In his new role at BNB, Mr. Cronin will join the leadership team responsible for strategic growth, working closely with owners and designers to lead project teams through preconstruction and construction.
Jeff Sebenik, Senior Project Executive at BNBuilders, states, “We are excited about Colum’s technical experience with cGMP, Vivarium and complex R&D facilities and believe he has the knowledge to help grow our life science footprint in the Bay Area. He is a great addition to our team and has the leadership skillset to help grow our branch in the Bay Area.”
Mr. Cronin has been involved in the construction over 50 Biotech and life science projects with an emphasis on research and development and cGMP work. During his tenure with Dome Construction, Mr. Cronin was project executive for the GNE Portfolio Program. He successfully led multiple projects culminating approximately $100 million in value. Mr. Cronin has over a decade of experience working in the Bay Area and has a strong understanding of the market.
Cronin states, “This was an opportunity I couldn’t say no to. It’s a chance to come in and help a growing region hit the ground running and there is so much opportunity in the Bay Area. I also found it refreshing to meet a team of very likeminded people who always put their clients and employees first. BNB isn’t afraid to take on a wide range of project types and for me, it is extremely rewarding to join a company with that mindset.”
