People Women In Construction

WIC Profile: Kimberly Joyce

Kim Joyce

Kimberly Joyce, CM-Lean, is the senior project manager at Colantonio Inc.

With 30 years of estimating and project management experience, she has honed the necessary skills to run a successful construction project, but it is her teamwork talent that she values most.

Her background includes a BS in architectural engineering from Wentworth Institute of Technology and a wide range of projects in the academic, industrial, biopharmaceutical, hospitality, office, and retail markets, which has connected her with a diverse set of owners, designers, and subcontractors.

“The best part of my job is collaborating with so many different kinds of people on every project,” said Joyce. “I’ve learned how to read my project partners and to understand how they prefer to communicate. Knowing their priorities and following through on expectations are key to being a good team player.” She says that her work also requires close attention to detail, strong organizational skills, the ability to multitask, and an excellent memory, especially when running multiple projects at once.

Joyce loves that she learns new things on every job and that she is never bored. She also enjoys Colantonio’s family-like work culture. Her favorite Colantonio project so far was the Mystic Water Works, an adaptive/reuse project for the Somerville Housing Authority. She  found it deeply satisfying to repurpose an abandoned, historical building as affordable housing for the elderly.

Joyce keeps just as busy on the weekends, when she and her family spend time traveling and enjoying the outdoors, especially skiing, hiking, biking, and the beach.
