Director of Project Solutions
Jimmy started with Skanska in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering at Georgia Tech.  Sustainability is a career passion, one of Georgia’s first LEED managers, created the Atlanta Mission urban garden, and a founding board member of the construction material reuse nonprofit based in Atlanta, the Lifecycle Building Center.  His current role with Skanska is the technical leader for The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design at all design and construction phases.  The project includes a glue laminated timber structure with nail laminated timber decking (NLT).  Serving on the Equity team he set up a partnership with Georgia Works!, a nonprofit that transfers homeless men into productive members of society to build the NLT decking.  Six men worked on the project on their path to full time employment.
