WIC Profile: Heather Waice

Heather Waice

Heather Waice is a project manager at JM Coull. After graduating from the University of New Hampshire in 2011 with a BS in civil engineering, she interviewed at JMC after being recommended by a current JMC employee.

Unfortunately, at the time, the firm didn’t have an available opening in operations, but recognized her enthusiasm and potential and offered to bring her on in a temporary administrative role until a position became available.

A dedicated employee, Waice worked hard to be promoted up the ranks, and it wasn’t long after she was hired that she became a project engineer. Over the next several years, she was promoted, first to assistant project manager, and then to her current position as project manager.

She has managed a number of projects for JMC clients such as Boston University, Boston College, Northeastern University, Charles River Community Health, Safecor Heath, and Waters Corporation.

She has also successfully taken the lead on some unique academic projects. A prime example of this is the 17,000sf addition and renovation to the Discovery Museum in Acton, Mass.

Additionally, she managed the new 33,000sf, $12.6 million performing arts center and gymnasium project for Whitinsville Christian School, that is JMC’s largest academic project to date. Both of these projects earned Associated Builders and Contractors’ Excellence in Construction Awards.

Throughout the past seven years, Waice has demonstrated exceptional professional growth and development and has established herself as an experienced project manager.

As one of the more senior members of JMC’s operations group, she mentors JMC assistant project managers and is consistently recognized for her honesty, integrity, and dedication to her clients and their building needs.
