Skanska USA has hired Justin Strzelecki as vice president and account manager for its building operations in California.
Prior to joining Skanska in September 2021, Strzelecki was project executive with Clark Construction for 10 years, spending five years each in the Washington, DC and Orange County.
In DC, he worked on the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the Smithsonian’s $500m renovation of the National Air and Space Museum. He also worked on the construction of Fannie Mae’s 1.1 million square foot Midtown Center headquarters.
Gordon Childress, executive vice president and general manager of Skanska USA, said: “His significant experience winning and leading complex projects in dynamic markets across the country will be instrumental in bolstering Skanska’s work in Southern California.”
Strzelecki’s previous west coast experience includes co-leading the pursuit, award and preconstruction of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art – a $520m project – as well as the contracting, procurement, start-up and staffing effort for the new Orange County Museum of Art. He also secured the engineering and manufacturing development phase of Northrop Grumman’s Ground Based Strategic Deterrent project for the Air Force.
