Jeff has award-winning attention to detail—literally—he was once recognized for creating the longest RFI ever written by a Project Engineer. Despite a background in design, which includes a BA in Architectural Studies from the University of Washington, Jeff discovered an organizer and planner role fit him best, so he turned his focus to managing the construction process. He joined GLY in 2006, applying his dual strengths in design and project management to our healthcare and life science projects. Away from work, Jeff enjoys playing basketball, running, and hiking with his family.
Project teams benefit from Spencer’s hit-the-ground-running attitude and determination in finding the best solutions for the task at hand. His natural ability to facilitate a collaborative environment by asking questions and bouncing ideas off team members often results in creative solutions for the tasks at hand. He enjoys applying many of the same concepts to parenting, as he raises his young daughter with his wife Taylor.
A licensed Structural Engineer whose background includes everything from heavy civil construction projects to mixed use developments, Kyle joined GLY in 2015 bringing seven years of experience designing concrete structures. He earned both a BS and MS in Civil Engineering from Montana State University-Bozeman and is a longtime volunteer in the ACE Mentor Program. Outside of the office, when he’s not on the golf course begging for mulligans and gimmes, Kyle and his better half, Holly, spend their time traveling or cycling—often combining the two if possible!
A healthy dose of serendipity led Melanie from the Peace Corps third world to the A/E/C integrated world, where she discovered a love for working with the people behind the concrete. Nearly 20 years later, she is contributing and receiving ideas and inspiration for marketing, communicating, and developing business as the Director of Marketing + Communications at GLY! A self-described thinker, linker, and obstacle shrinker, Melanie likes to approach her work with these three questions: Who is our audience? What do they need? How can we reach them and develop trust?
Elie feels at home taking leadership on her
jobsites, working with a team-first attitude, taking pride in the lasting
relationships she builds with her colleagues, and ensuring everyone knows the
great value of their contributions. Being a firm believer of “work smarter, not
harder”—Elie addresses problems critically, always searching for ways to
improved solutions and streamline processes through LEAN principles to reduce
labor while simultaneously improving quality and minimizing errors. You can
also find Elie feeling very much at home on skiis, her standup paddleboarding, and
hiking + backpacking on the weekends.
Dennis is the go-to guy on anything and everything concrete. At age 15, he poured and finished driveways, patios, and shop slabs. When he started at GLY at 18, he was the youngest journeyman in his union. Today, he's a concrete master who oversees projects up to one million square feet. His favorite aspect of the job is the constant change of scenery since he's not on one single project for an extensive amount of time. While concrete is a big part of Dennis’s life, he makes plenty of room for his kids, fishing, hiking, and visiting Kauai, his happy place.
Jon attributes his appreciation of craft and hard work to working as a carpenter for a Spokane-based general contractor while earning a BS in Construction Management from Washington State University. Since joining GLY in 1999, he’s honed his expertise as a healthcare and high-tech office project manager and team builder. When he’s not piecing together complex logistics plans, you’ll find Jon cheering on the Seattle Sounders or casting a line. If he could talk his wife into selling everything and living in a trailer down by the river, he’d be there already.
