Erica Jarvis, Project Manager, NEI General Contracting

Erica Jarvis

Erica Jarvis earned an associate’s degree in architectural engineering technology before being accepted into the design program where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in architecture. Her first internship was at an interior design firm in Rocky Hill, Conn., followed by two consecutive internships at a Boston architectural firm specializing in colleges and movie theaters.

After graduation, Erica worked as a project engineer at Eastern Contractors, a construction firm focused on public schools, before moving to Metric Construction where she spent 15 years as assistant project manager and project manager. 

Since joining NEI General Contracting, she has found historic rehab projects most rewarding. She enjoys peeling back layers and valuing the beauty in how things were constructed and how they have stood the test of time.

Her advice to anyone considering a career in construction is, “Believe in yourself! Evaluate your strengths and make them work for you; recognize your weaknesses and try to improve. It’s a balance every day, but if you challenge and believe in yourself, you will be successful.”
