Owner Bio

As an industrious and eager youth, Josh worked weekends and summers in the commercial and residential HVAC business with his father and relatives. His entry into construction project management in 2006 was with Patina Metals, Inc., which provided a unique foundation of technical and fundamental skills through the installation of ornate custom steel structures and aesthetics in some of the most prominent areas of Houston. In the summer of 2007, Josh joined National Realty Group, Inc., for a summer internship in brokerage and development. At the end of his internship, he joined the in-house construction company BNC Construction, LP as their first superintendent and soon thereafter, Project Manager and Vice President. BNC provided a vast array of experiences in project management of industrial, medical, office, distribution, retail, and education construction. After 6+ years with BNC, Josh joined McCord Development, Inc., as their lead Project Manager of Generation Park, a 4,000 acre mixed-use commercial development, directly managing the construction of public roadways, utility infrastructure, and regional detention, making over 800 acres shovel ready. His responsibilities also included coordination efforts with local jurisdictions for Capital Improvement Projects and with a Fortune 500 client for their construction efforts on a 10-campus consolidation and a corporate headquarters developed on 173 acres.

Through each opportunity, Josh has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience while establishing relationships with his team members, consultants, contractors, local authorities, and utility providers. He also enjoys time with his family and friends and is an avid golfer, hunter, fisherman, Texas BBQ competition cooker, and sports fan.
