Abstract:
This article features Barry Jordan, a consultant and an alumnus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, Massachusetts. Midway through a $100 million construction project, Jordan has been asked to work with the architects and construction manager of the Mount Vernon school district in New York to figure out how officials could best address growing middle-school enrollments. The team recommended that an elementary school be transformed into a middle school. Jordan’s clients have ranged from the Mount Vernon school district to a massive real-estate project outside Washington, D. C., to a waste-hauling firmed by college chum Ron Adolph. Jordan’s consulting role can vary. In Mount Vernon, he was the school district’s owner’s representative, making sure that contractors for the school transformation project finish on time. Jordan knew little about the industry in 2001 when Adolph asked for his help. Jordan says that after taking several trips to the landfills and spending days watching trucks being loaded at transfer stations, he learned the importance of good employees. He says that as a civil engineering student at MIT, he developed the discipline necessary for problem solving.
