CMS Project Team
Paul V. Griffin Jr. – Founding Partner/Principal /Senior Advisor
Paul has been directly involved in Building and Life Cycle Maintenance of facilities for more than 30 years. Besides extensive educational experience, he worked over 11 years directly in electrical construction with a wide range of experiences.
In 1978, an opportunity presented itself and Paul veered toward corporate management. He became responsible for a “state of the art” data center and other various facilities. This required day-to-day operations of multiple tasks, always keeping in mind Budget vs. Life Cycle Costing of his facility. Throughout his employment, he has moved up the ‘Corporate Ladder’, with the consistency and ability to take on whatever is required of him.
Paul has proven to be a seasoned professional in building maintenance, construction, project management and corporate operating services. This experience provides our project team with the ability to assist in the design process to insure construction methods and materials that will keep long-term maintenance lower. He also has extensive knowledge of operating mechanical systems with energy management. This provides the assurance of properly operating equipment at the lowest possible price. He can also provide experience on future expansion with emphasis on what cost should be considered now for the best value to the town in the future.
He has outstanding management and problem-solving skills as well as a proven record for the implementation of several projects, which were completed within budget. Paul also likes to give back to his community. Paul also served on the Building Committee for the Mashpee High School project where he served as the Chairman. Overseeing this impressive 28.7 million dollar undertaking has demonstrated, once again, his dedication by being a creative, articulate achiever with exceptional organizational, analytical and interpersonal skills, which are obvious right from the onset of anything he takes upon himself.
