Zimmerman to direct $17 million of work in the pipeline, with more anticipated in post-pandemic surge
PHOENIX (July 20, 2021) —Phoenix-based property management leader Arcadia Management Group (AMG) has launched a new Construction Management Division, hiring industry veteran Mark Zimmerman to lead the launch and the division during a time of surging post-pandemic demand.
In his new role, Zimmerman serves as the National Director of Construction Management, overseeing a pipeline of $17 million in tenant and capital improvements for current Arcadia-managed properties. He will also pursue and direct projects outside of the Arcadia real estate portfolio – a market segment experiencing significant growth as COVID restrictions lift and companies return to the office.
“There was no notable downturn in construction demand during the pandemic. In fact, demand among Arcadia clients grew as tenants recognized the need to incorporate new technology and embrace and deploy flexible, amenity-heavy work environments,” said Zimmerman. “With this new division, we will be able to meet that demand and pursue new opportunities as an experienced team, within a very efficient, nimble and creative organization.”
Based in Phoenix, Arcadia Management Group serves a portfolio of more than 50 million square feet of office, retail and industrial space across the United States. Zimmerman brings decades of industry experience to the company, including running his own general contracting firm for more than 19 years. He is an Arizona state licensed Commercial General and Residential Contractor, and a LEED Accredited Professional. He is also a former Advisory Board member of the Maricopa Skill Center and former Design Review Board Member for the Salt River Project
“Mark contributes a tremendous amount of industry experience and a true commitment to being responsive, creative and solutions-focused,” said Arcadia Management Group President Gary Shaw. “Companies across our network are seeking out this level of quality and skill as they negotiate our new business landscape. We are thrilled to have Mark on board to help us answer this demand.”
In addition to tenant improvements, Arcadia’s Construction Management Division will also offer post-construction services including furniture, security, IT, utilities and related set-up and coordination associated with a tenant relocation.
