Adolfson & Peterson Construction, a national construction management company, is launching a special projects division focused on construction projects of less than $ 5 million with tight deadlines in occupied spaces or facilities.

Mehul Mistry, Special Projects Manager, came to AP Southwest to lead the new department that received its first project proposal from the Cyrene School District to improve the weathering of elementary schools in Mariposa, Manitas, Esperanza and Lagos.

According to a press release, Adolfson & Peterson reached the essential completion of the roughly $ 923,855 project in late August: removing existing joint sealants, preparing existing building and construction site walls for new sealants, installing sealants, providing new metal roofing caps, and repairing existing construction site fencing.

“For decades, AP has done smaller jobs for owners, users and counties in the region. By establishing this new division, we have a team dedicated to these unique projects while also having the capacity to take on and manage bids for larger construction projects, ”said Scott Salyer, vice president of operations, in a prepared statement .

“Mehul has extensive experience in estimating and managing projects of this size and we are confident that he will be an excellent addition to this part of our job mix.”

With over a decade of construction experience, Mistry has worked on a variety of projects including K-12 expansion and renovation, retail, entertainment and healthcare, as well as commercial tenant fit-out and home remodeling projects.

Most recently, Mistry was a project manager at Katerra and a deputy project manager at AR Mays Construction. He holds a bachelor’s degree in construction management specializing in architectural design from California State University – Fresno.

“AP has a solid reputation for building long-term customer relationships and we’re always looking for new ways to serve them,” said Mistry. “By focusing on smaller projects with existing and potential customers, we will be able to provide high quality tenant improvement, renovation, expansion and repair services on an order basis and expand our presence in the region.”
