American Restoration Group presented Chris Masonick, Restore Construction’s Construction Manager, with the Project Manager of the Year award on October 23, 2023.
American Restoration reviewed over 60 project managers nationwide within their group of restoration companies. Managers were judged based on their overall performance annually, with specific attention on customer satisfaction and budgeting. Restore Construction and the other companies included specialize in disaster restoration and reconstruction services. Construction projects within these companies are primarily post-disaster and coupled with a property insurance claim. Post-disaster construction projects are fluid and not always easy to perform upfront cost estimates for repairs due to unforeseen damage that may arise during the demolition and restoration stages of the project.
Chris has been with Restore Construction for over 12 years. He oversees 70-80 ongoing large-loss jobs a year. Chris has three project managers who are direct reports. The many years of experience that Chris has in disaster repair and reconstruction have led him to achieve outstanding profit margins for his jobs and the company. He has a keen ability to identify and prove damages, work with insurance adjusters, and use state-of-the-art technology to his advantage. Not only does Chris excel at managing construction jobs but he also has a way with people. Most clients of Restore will mention Chris by name in their reviews online. Vice President of Restore Construction, Michael Santoro says, “We are proud of Chris’s achievement and value him as a quality leader in our company.”
When Chris is not hard at work, he enjoys outdoor motorsports and spending time with his family. From boating to snowmobiling, he has a spirit for the outdoors. Chris aspires to progress in the construction management field and with Restore Construction. In 2024, Chris aims to simplify workflows in the construction department, increase the number of online reviews received after jobs are completed, and focus on quality control to decrease future warranty claims
