Young Professional

Design Manager
Hensel Phelps

Jamie Athenour is exactly the type of engaged young professional our industry needs. As an active member of the DBIA Western Pacific Region/Bay Area Chapter and an advocate for the design-build delivery method, she has made it her mission to spread the word about the value of design-build far and wide. Jamie has also established a DBIA Young Professionals recruitment program at Hensel Phelps Construction and serves as the Membership Chair for DBIA’s Western Pacific Region.

Jamie’s passion for promoting design-build principles among her peers is evident in her work as a Design Manager for Hensel Phelps, where she helps her teams navigate the design-build process from the earliest stages of her projects. She is currently the Design Manager for a $95 million design-build project and was previously involved with the successful SFO Replacement Airport Traffic Control Tower project. Jamie has also participated in a panel at the Women in Construction conference, discussing the successful use of progressive design-build as a delivery method on challenging public projects. Jamie’s future leadership aspirations include a nomination to the DBIA WPR Board in 2018 — and we are thankful for that!
