Seattle, WA, July 28, 2021 – BNBuilders has recently welcomed Jai Thangaraj to the team as a Project Executive serving the Bay Area. Mr. Thangaraj brings over 24 years of experience overseeing large, technically complex projects including acute care hospitals (OSHPD), medical office buildings, high-rises, corporate offices, hotels, universities (DSA), and residential projects. He has had extensive involvement with alternative contracting methods such as Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach and Design-build. In his new role at BNB, Mr. Thangaraj will join the leadership team responsible for business development and 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 brought Jai on board because he has the drive and experience to help grow our hospital and high-tech commercial office resume in the local area. He is a proven leader and has strong ties to the Bay Area which makes him a natural fit for this role.”
Mr. Thangaraj gained extensive experience in the Bay Area and Silicon Valley markets during his tenure at DPR and Webcore Builders. His championing of a collaborative approach and hands-on management of his projects allow him to develop strong relationships with clients as evidenced by his track record of project success. During his time at Webcore, Mr. Thangaraj successfully led the pursuit of four separate projects for the University of California San Francisco worth over $1.7 billion.
Thangaraj states, “While BNB is a large company, the Bay Area region specifically is just getting off the ground in comparison to some of the other regions. In that regard, there is a bit of a start-up feel here which I enjoy. I was particularly drawn in by the opportunity to take on a regional leadership role for a region that is currently growing to its full potential in this market. There is a lot of promise here to grow into the tech and life science markets and it is a journey that I am excited to be a part of.”
