John Anderson, P.E., LEED AP BD+C, is retiring from Hunzinger Construction Company at the end of December after 35 years of service. John, an Air Force veteran and graduate of Milwaukee School of Engineering with a B.S. in Civil Engineering, began his career at Hunzinger in February 1979 working as a Field Engineer on the Hyatt Regency Hotel located at 333 West Kilbourn Avenue in the heart of downtown Milwaukee. By the end of that project, he was elevated to serve as Project Superintendent on another project and then was moved to the position of Project Manager. One of his first projects as a PM was the Beecher Court Apartments where we served as Construction Manager to the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee. A successful longstanding relationship with the Housing Authority remains in place today.
John’s very successful career as a PM included work around the country for Waste Management and a number of power plants. He led the Waukesha County Administration Building project, the Ozaukee County Justice Facility in Port Washington, where he saved the client over $1 million dollars and was able to complete a full remodel of the Ozaukee County Administration Building with the savings; The Lynde and Harry Bradley School of Technology and Trade, MSOE’s Kern Center and the Wisconsin Center Convention Center where he led our project management team. In 2006, he made the move to Senior Project Estimator and has worked on multiple projects including the Bayshore Town Center and Mayfair Mall. We thank John for his dedication to Hunzinger and will miss his lively and interesting discussions about world history, science and engineering. Best of Luck in your retirement, John, and we hope you enjoy the “dry heat” of Arizona!!
