Washington, DC – Consigli Construction Co., Inc. today announced that it has named three new Project Executives in the Washington, D.C. office: Christopher Candiello, Joseph Ockershausen and Jared Geary. In their new roles, each will expand leadership in the D.C. office and help solidify Consigli’s presence in the Mid-Atlantic Region to further develop its regional expertise and market reach.
Chris Candiello has been with Consigli since 2017 and brings over 25 years of experience in the higher education market. Candiello will oversee complex higher education projects and continue to lead and expand Consigli’s presence in the higher education market in the Mid-Atlantic region. Prior to joining Consigli, he served in facilities project management roles at both Tufts University and Harvard University. Candiello currently oversees the new SNF Agora building at Johns Hopkins University, Smith Hall Renovation at Towson University and Farrand House at Dumbarton Oaks.
As a 27-year industry veteran, Joe Ockershausen joins Consigli from a local mid-size general contractor and has overseen projects of varying sizes and complexities in D.C., Maryland and Virginia. He will focus on leading and growing Consigli’s public and residential/mixed use markets. Joe is already overseeing the Design-Build renovation and expansion of Adams Education Campus School, a historic school that was the first in the country to implement a bilingual program. Most notably, Joe recently oversaw the expansion of the D.C. Courts building and construction of the Tucker Road Ice Rink in Fort Washington, Md.
Jared Geary has over 15 years of local industry experience and joins Consigli from a local general contractor. He has successfully overseen various life science and healthcare construction projects of different sizes and scopes across the Mid-Atlantic region.
