Owen‑Ames‑Kimball Florida Hires Pablo Ferreira as Estimator

Owen‑Ames‑Kimball Company (O‑A‑K), a preeminent general contractor with a longstanding presence in Southwest Florida, has announced the hiring of Pablo Ferreira as Estimator.

Ferreira started his career in project management and estimating for both commercial and residential projects with experience as a lead carpenter, assistant field manager, and logistics coordinator. His multi-capacity expertise led him to an assistant project manager and estimator position, where Ferreira managed projects for the top four hospitals and three top universities in the Boston area. After moving to Southwest Florida, he has concentrated on his estimating, budgeting, and preconstruction skills for commercial projects.

Ferreira has earned his auto computer-aided design (AutoCAD) specialist certificate and his certificate in construction management. In addition, he recently earned his Associate in Science in Architectural Design and Construction Technology at Florida SouthWestern State College. He is on track to graduate with a computer science certificate from Harvard University by the end of the year and plans to continue his education at Florida Gulf Coast University.

“Pablo is proficient in state-of-the-art estimating, project management, scheduling, and AutoCAD software programs,” said Matthew Zwack, president of O‑A‑K Florida. “His depth of experience and skills in large commercial estimating projects are a great asset to our growing company.”

An employee-owned company, O‑A‑K Florida, Inc.’s board of directors, comprises members from the company’s Florida operations. Owen‑Ames‑Kimball Company has provided premier general contracting, design-build, and construction management services in Southwest Florida since 1982.

O‑A‑K’s Florida operation is an affiliate of its parent company located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The Florida operation has offices in Collier and Lee counties. Its Lee County office is located at 11941 Fairway Lakes Drive in Fort Myers. Learn more about O‑A‑K at www.owen‑ames‑kimball.com.
