Meet Joe Kelly, Ernst Brothers’ new construction estimator, and project manager.
Henceforth, we’ll refer to our newest team member in public as “Joe K” because, well, Joe Ernst got here first. (In truth, however, there may be some friendly name-calling on-site and in job meetings because it’s more fun that way. Please see Tim Ernst to suggest alternate nomenclature.)
Kelly (oh, there’s an option!) comes to Ernst after 18 years with a high-end custom builder in Bucks County, where he worked his way up the ladder from a staff carpenter. While there, he served as a field manager for projects that exceeded $7million, prepared estimates for projects from $10K to $6million and managed a residential multi-home site work development.
His experiences on projects that offer a range of challenges have developed skills that make him a valuable asset to Ernst Brothers. Joey (not crazy about this one) is already poised to assist the company as it continues its expansion into more complex projects throughout the Delaware Valley.
“We hit the jackpot with Joe Kelly,” says Jake Taylor, managing partner. “His focus on clear communication, well-defined expectations and creating efficient processes enhances his competence as a construction estimator and complements Ernst Brothers’ conviction that details matter.”
The admiration is mutual. “The environment at Ernst is terrific,” says Joseph (another one?). “Everyone is happy, excited and speaks very highly of the team. Each team member is respected and appreciated for the skill set and experiences they offer.
“On the projects side,” he notes, his estimator and project management focus showing, “Ernst understands the role they play on the design team. By paying close attention to the details before projects kick-off, they increase efficiency, save time and money, and enhance how happy our clients are overall.”
Second Joe (we can do this all day, folks) lives in Horsham with his family, which includes his wife, Toni, and three sons: Thomas entered high school in the fall, Colin is currently serving overseas in the U.S. Air Force and Ian is a special needs teacher.
