Tyler Jones has worked in construction his entire career. Since 2014, he’s been at Blount as a pre-construction manager, where he applies his knowledge gained from a BS in Construction Management from ASU and his experience as an estimator with a pre-construction team.
His first job in the industry was with an underground utility contractor specializing in wet utilities for subdivisions, where he rose through the ranks from project coordinator to estimator to project manager. He worked in estimating and project management for other companies, but he prefers working with a smaller company and likes taking on new challenges. Blount offered him both.
As pre-construction manager, Tyler’s job is to find work – responding to customers with detailed information and accurate pricing. Pursuit of a project for the Mayo Clinic West Expansion in Phoenix involved months of budgeting, SOQ, and pricing. Blount’s unique solutions for the project’s constraints and quick responses won the bid for the tunneling project.
Neither Blount nor Tyler is afraid of a challenge and both like working outside the box and taking risks. It’s why the Arizona native and father of five is such a good fit. When he’s not with his Blount family, he volunteers for his church’s youth program and likes to camp, hike, snowboard, wakeboard, and travel.
