Sundt Construction Expands its San Diego Team

Sundt Construction, Inc., a member of multiple AGC chapters, recently added five new team members to its San Diego office. Amber Simonson, Rudy Teh, Thomas Lopez, Tom Oliver and Ron Eldridge will join the R.J. Donovan Correctional Complex team in Otay Mesa, California. The $169 million joint venture project with Layton Construction is expected to break ground in 2015.

Simonson, hired as senior project engineer, brings more than nine years of project manager experience within the San Diego construction industry. In her role, Simonson is the technical source of information for the project, providing expertise in construction engineering technology, codes and standards.

Teh, a senior project engineer, transferred to the California District from Sundt’s Federal Division and will immediately join the R.J. Donovan Complex team. A Sundt team member since 2007, Teh has worked on many influential projects, including the $25 million John M. Roll United States Courthouse project in Yuma, Arizona.

Lopez, hired as project engineer, joins the San Diego team after spending the last three years as project engineer for a leading Southern California builder. In his role, Lopez oversees project procurement, forecasting, contracts, scheduling and estimating. He will join the Corrections Corporation of America - Otay Mesa Detention Facility team and the R.J. Donovan project later this summer.

Oliver, a project superintendent, transfers to the San Diego office from Sundt’s Irvine office this August. A Sundt team member since 2009, Oliver currently is working on the Western University Student Housing project in Pomona, California.

Eldridge, a senior project superintendent, joins the California District from Sundt’s Southwest District. His extensive self-perform experience not only complements the San Diego team, but supports Sundt’s growth of self-perform opportunities throughout California.
