Personal Bio

Building upon a successful career of over 30 years in the construction industry, Brian offers a wealth of understanding to his role as Superintendent. Brian is responsible for overseeing and managing the safety and operations of the jobsite, as well as the timeliness of completion, and the quality of the completed project. He is adept at building and maintaining strong relationships with clients, owners, architects, and trade contractors, resulting in highly collaborative and effective teams with proven results. 

With over 10 years of his career at Abbott Construction, Brian has had the pleasure of contributing to a number of iconic projects from Seattle to Portland, including serving clients such as CenturyLink Field, MultiCare Health Systems, Graybar, Lutheran Community Services, Bartell Drugs, Walgreens, JOEY Restaurants, Federal Aviation Administration, Recovery Cafe, Eagles Landing Hotel, and Pan Pacific Hotel.

With a passion for encouraging and equipping the next generation of construction professionals, Brian also teaches Project Supervision at the Construction Industry Training Council. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family and grandchildren.

Abbott's work was performed on-time, on-budget and ultimately resulted in a world-class facility not only for the making of whiskey, but also sharing the whiskey making process with our customers.
