Chicago — Englewood Constructionhas promoted Lance Beeler to director of preconstruction services from senior manager of preconstruction services. In this newly created position, Beeler will lead Englewood’s preconstruction, cost estimating, budgeting and scheduling staff.
“Since joining us 3 years ago, Lance has demonstrated great insight and communication with our clients, which is crucial in crystalizing big picture project goals,” says Bill Di Santo, president of Lemont, Ill.-based Englewood Construction. “Our estimating and procurement work has greatly increased as the economy has improved and our business has embarked on construction projects of a much larger scale.”
