John Hobson, Senior Project Manager

John has 41 years experience managing large academic, commercial, industrial, residential, hospitality, and health care projects for former employers Cutler Associates, Payton Construction and ZVI Construction. John is currently managing the renovation of the Jamaica Plain Library, the oldest branch of the Boston Public Library.  His most recent project was the award-winning Field School for the Town of Weston.

John likes the out-of-the-ground aspect of new construction projects like the Field School, where challenges like subsurface conditions, boulders, water and the precise placement of footings kept him on his toes.  “The foundation has to be perfect for the project to work,” he says.  “It’s satisfying to guide that process.”  John also appreciates the process of grape fermentation, trekking to Napa Valley every year to nourish his passion for fine wine. He and his wife live in western Massachusetts and have two grown children who, for now, live near by.
