Providence, RI – Shawmut Design and Construction announced that Senior Superintendent Jessica Spivey was named a “Woman to Watch” as part of the Providence Business News 2020 Business Women Awards.
A 12-year veteran of the firm, Spivey began her career within Shawmut’s skills training program, a three-year rotation for recent college graduates. Now she works alongside project managers and engineers in the field to implement schedules, manage field staff and operations, and ensure quality control for some of the firm’s most prestigious partners.
Spivey has worked on some of the most high-profile institutional projects in Shawmut’s New England region, including historic renovations to the Newport Marriott and countless projects at Brown University.
She is currently overseeing project execution at Brown University’s under-construction wellness center and residence hall, which marks the first new building in the university’s housing portfolio in 30 years.
As part of Shawmut’s longstanding partnership with the institution, Spivey helped establish a Brown/Shawmut strategic sourcing program with the institution – a multi-year, multi-project collaboration to maximize technical expertise and project execution.
She was also nominated to implement innovative project delivery approaches across campus, including design/build and integrated project delivery.
