Mr. Abou-Jaoude worked in heavy civil construction. His responsibilities included field inspection for retaining structures, resource forecasting, scheduling, and maintaining project documents such as drawings, submittals, RFI’s, and change orders. Mr. Abou-Jaoude completed his Master’s degree from Stanford University and Bachelor’s degree from the University of British Columbia, both in the field of Civil Engineering.
At Stanford, Mr. Abou-Jaoude specialized in Construction Engineering and Management. He took classes such as managing fabrication and construction, building information modeling, construction accounting and finance, life cycle assessment, and industrialized construction. During his studies, his project experience included a life cycle comparison between two different building façade systems, comparing a scope-schedule-cost model between a pre-fabricated and a cast in place parking garage, as well as real-world productivity analysis. Mr. Abou-Jaoude also participated in the ASC competition where he helped Stanford win second place in the Integrated Project Delivery division.
