After earning a civil engineering degree at the University of the Pacific in 1985, Shawn Fitzpatrick, began his career working as an estimator and project manager for contractors specializing in residential and commercial construction. In 1992, he joined the Kitchell Corporation as an estimator working on new prisons throughout California, which led to his construction supervisory position with the State of California Department of Corrections Inmate Day Labor Program. This program had an annual budget of approximately $150 million and was responsible for the construction projects within existing state prisons.
Shawn joined UC Construction in 1999 as a senior project manager. His strong background in research, combined with the practical application of engineering and construction skills, makes him ideally suited for the complex world of construction management and development. Shawn’s involvement has led to the construction of luxury condominiums, retail buildings, Rite Aid stores, high-density residential buildings, office complexes and single-family communities. His guidance and foresight have helped the UC Construction team maintain the highest standards of quality, flexibility and service.
