Courtney James

Construction Administrator

As a Construction Administrator, Courtney has one goal: the continual pursuit of excellence. What does that mean for her clients? It means she uses her 20+ years of experience in construction management and architecture to transition design projects from dream to done. She performs constructability document reviews before contractors even see them, lessening change orders and field issues, and serves as a liaison between the construction manager, contractors, and design team during bidding and construction. Her attention to detail and ability to strategize solutions and implement decisions means what was once on paper becomes reality.

Personal Note

I'm a huge dog lover!  I have two dogs of my own and have volunteered with the Animal Rescue Project in Kalamazoo for over ten years.  I'm the unofficial 'dog wash lead'.  I've washed over 4,000 dogs in my time there!
