Graham Construction



In its Seattle/Washington Buildings Northwest Group, Graham Construction promoted Michael Webster to chief estimator and David Westmoreland to estimate manager. Webster is now responsible for all estimating functions in both Seattle and Spokane. He continues to refine the estimating costing database, oversee the development of subcontractor/supplier outreach, and align estimating efforts with the preconstruction services of Graham.

Graham says Westmoreland has a talent for teaching and will take an active role in the career development and mentorship of junior staff.


The Construction Management Association of America and the National Association of Women in Construction recently formed a partnership to strengthen the success of women in the construction industry. The two organizations will cross-promote events, with the possibility of co-producing a few, and attend each other's conferences and events. One of the features of the partnership is that NAWIC members will be able to pursue CMAA credentials for Construction Manager-in-Training, Certified Associate Construction Manager and Certified Construction Manager at CMAA member rates. This summer, CMAA will lead a Principles of Construction Management course for NAWIC members during NAWIC's 68th Annual Conference in Portland.
