Nick Shugrue began working in the construction industry over fourteen years ago with a large restoration firm. He excelled through this company to become a project manager over multiple projects at a time. Nick is highly skilled in the techniques and procedures of fire and water damage and mold and smoke remediation with the skill sets to perform this work while companies are open for business and buildings are occupied.
After eight years in this industry Nick took a leap of faith to fill a niche in the construction industry – large scale punchout crews. He developed his own team and was soon awarded contracts from building firms. Nick and his team would arrive on the project site when construction was nearing completion to perform the finish punch out work. He worked every type of construction including demolition and rebuilds of poorly constructed projects. He operated this company for several years until he saw an opportunity to work with a larger commercial general contractor.
Nick took a commercial project management position with CBI Summers Construction in 2012 to lead their commercial restaurant and retail division. While at CBI, he was responsible for building more than five “Your Pie” pizza franchises and their corporate baking facility. Nick also built franchises for Moe’s Southwest Grill, Jam Fitness, Wich Wich Sandwich shops, and Bach 2 Rock – America’s Music Schools, where he met a project manager from Chandlee Construction in early 2018. He immediately liked the ‘family’ culture that led him to believe it was a better fit for him. He interviewed with Chandlee Construction and was hired as a Project Manager.
At age 37, Nick has quickly become one of the most respected team members. He is currently building a $1.5 million architectural marvel called Aix-TinTin, a French bar, winery and restaurant in 2200 square feet of seriously high-end finish work inside a new building.
