He transitioned to the field to gain first-hand experience, supporting the $1.1 billion Department of Homeland Security Consolidated Headquarters Phase 1 program at the St. Elizabeth’s West Campus in Washington, D.C., and oversaw project controls as owner’s representative for the Architect of the Capitol during the initial phase of the 10-year occupied renovation of the Cannon House Office Building on Capitol Hill, among other projects. During this time, he earned the LEED Accredited Professional for Building Design + Construction (LEED AP BD+C) credential and also represented the interests of young professionals as a liaison to the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) Board of Directors and a Construction Manager in Training (CMIT).
Nick studied international business, management, and political science at The University of Maine, earning both a bachelor’s degree and an MBA, and spent a semester abroad in Aalen, Germany. As a graduate assistant with the University of Maine Center for Student Innovation, he completed market research projects on several research initiatives, including sustainable composite bridge technologies and offshore wind.
