John Hobson, Senior Project Manager

John has 42 years experience managing large academic, commercial, industrial, residential, hospitality, and health care projects for former employers Cutler Associates, Payton Construction and ZVI Construction. John recently wrapped up the renovation of the Jamaica Plain Branch of the Boston Public Library and is now building the Hopkinton Early Elementary School.  

John likes the out-of-the-ground aspect of new construction projects like the Field Elementary School in Weston, 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.
