Jay Durrett, LEED AP

Project Manager

Since joining Bass Construction in 2003, Jay Durrett has worked on a variety of project types, including civic structures, community facilities and retail establishments. But, it’s the work he’s done for area school districts that he’s especially proud. While these projects tend to have tight timeframes because schedules are driven by the school calendar, he prefers rolling up his sleeves and simply getting the job done.

Jay’s organizational skills serve him well in his position as project manager. Staying on top of the schedule, budget and field operations is right up his alley! And, he’s an effective communicator with the superintendent and field crews as well as the architect and owner. He understands his role is integral in the overall success of a project and enjoys fulfilling a client’s goals.

His proactive approach complements Jay’s keen attention to detail. He focuses on making sure no detail – even the smallest one – falls through the cracks because he realizes that even the small details make a big difference in the client’s experience with the project and the team. He is known for being able to assess issues before they become problems.
