Mariah DiDomenico, Senior Project Engineer for Skanska USA in Central Oregon, is excited to bring her diverse skillsets and experience to drive innovation at Skanska.
DiDomenico has well established herself as leader in the healthcare construction industry for most of her professional life, always looking to continue to grow in this direction. She has worked on the construction IT side, honing her exposure to the disciplines of civil engineering, geotechnical engineering, and architectural projects in several different industries.
While working long and hard on the information technology side of construction, she felt the pull of wanting to know more about the challenges inherent in the built environment. She notes that it’s the details that matter to her.
Prior to her Skanska role, she did top-line work writing technical proposals; and managing vendors, budgets, schedules, alongside local hospital administrators and management teams. She integrated successfully with each project’s end-users to ensure high engagement on projects from the ground up. “This work helped to determine feasibility, pricing, value engineering, and timelines, which is my strength on construction projects.”
DiDomenico’s ten years’ experience as a project manager in the healthcare construction IT industry makes her the perfect fit for Skanska’s team overseeing the construction of St. Charles Medical Center’s new Intensive Care Unit and addition of new patient rooms. “Everyone’s input, leadership and direction are important to the success of the team. Subcontractors and project partners rely on me as a strong resource. They know I will provide them with the information they need to successfully coordinate and complete their jobs. I answer promptly because I know the teams needs that bridge and the strong communications interface.”
John Williamson, project executive in Skanska USA’s Central Oregon office notes, “Mariah’s experience and knowledge has been a pivotal component of our team’s success; her leadership on the project has been recognized by our client and other key stakeholders.”
DiDomenico believes that “striving to develop excellent relationships with the key stakeholders of any project provides reassurance the project will be completed as expected, with minimal issues or delays.” This, she says, is what leadership is all about.
