Manager of Estimating
Christian manages a networked team of estimators across several cities: four estimators and one assistant in Pittsburg, one estimator in Sacramento, and one estimator in Los Angeles. Every day he uses his estimating experience to develop comprehensive and competitive proposals for clients. He and his team are confident in estimating any industrial or commercial project—no matter the size. And with each client and each project, Christian leads his team of estimators to surpass client expectations and cultivate long-term relationships.
Christian graduated from California State University Hayward with a bachelor’s in psychology, entering the construction field right after graduation as a Field Engineer on the Keahole Power Plant in Hawaii. He has now worked in the industry for almost 20 years, 12 of those years here at Performance Mechanical, Inc. (PMI).
Christian has estimated projects varying in size from $1,000 to $100,000,000+. His estimating experience at PMI has focused on heavy industrial projects in the petro-chemical, chemical, and power plant fields.
To continue growing and learning as a manager, Christian has attended many educational programs, including the Crestcom “Bullet Proof Manager” training series, the MCAA Institute for Project Management Program (University of Texas – Austin), the MCAA Labor Estimating Workshop, and various HVAC online courses.
