Erland Promotes Two to Project Manager

Matt Pugh

Burlington, MA – Erland Construction announced the promotion of both Matt Pugh and Jacob Byrne to project manager.

Pugh started as assistant project manager at Erland in 2021. His first project with the firm was 55 acres of enabling work and infrastructure upgrades, including demolishing several existing buildings on a mixed-use development in Woburn. The firm’s representatives say he proved to be an asset taking on more responsibility as the project progressed, diligently communicating with the client, and coordinating with the subcontractors, abutters, utility providers, and the city to ensure successful completion. In Pugh’s latest endeavor, he has taken on leading the renovation of a 5,600sf ice rink at The Fessenden School.

Since joining Erland in 2018 as a project engineer, Byrne has quickly climbed the ranks to project manager. Representatives of Erland say he is professional in his communication, tactful with coordination, and has become a humble leader with his team. With over 1.4 million sq. ft. of construction experience under his belt, he has developed an understanding of Erland’s clients’ needs and expectations, ensuring their confidence throughout the project.
