History

Construction Management has been a cornerstone service offering of Menemsha since we began operations over 25 years ago. In fact, the origins of Menemsha are in providing Construction Management (CM) and General Construction Services. Since our founders, John Daigle and Tom Speroni met at the University of Denver, their vision has been to provide a better Construction Management solution for the Retail and Restaurant markets. And with our company’s success and growth over the years, we’ve expanded our CM services to include Banking/ Financial Services, Hospitality, Commercial Office, C-Store, and Big Box markets. Our team of highly qualified, skilled, and experienced Construction Managers continue to drive results for our customers.

Jon Bayha

SENIOR ESTIMATOR
There is no approximating the value of over 25 years of estimating experience. Jon’s expertise spans detailed plan reviews, on-screen takeoff, Timberline unit price estimating, and real-world subcontractor proposals. For our clients, this means all scope items are priced and follow the project plan in budgets for a wide range of design stages including conceptual, schematic, design development, and construction. With this kind of expertise, Jon surely puts the “esteemed” in estimating.

Joe Byrne

SENIOR ESTIMATOR
It figures that with over 25 years of cost estimating experience in the construction industry that Joe is a consummate estimator. Joe came up through ‘the ranks’ and leverages this experience to provide quality estimates. His ability to understand how a project is built is reflected in his approach and methodology.

Tom Speroni

EXECUTIVE VP / PRINCIPAL
After earning a degree in Business from the University of Denver, where Tom also studied Real Estate and Construction Management, he found himself in Seattle, WA. Leveraging his academic and hands-on construction experience, he positioned himself at the forefront of the expansion for a little-known local coffee shop chain poised for growth. Five years later, his entrepreneurial spirit started calling. Tom departed his senior role to become a partner at Menemsha. With the client’s perspective in focus, he pioneered an innovative Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) process for retail expansion. Working with fast-growing national restaurant and retail chains, he leveraged his Seattle expertise to streamline the development process and to accelerate store openings. Later, bringing this strategy into the healthcare sector, he successfully applied a similar approach to dialysis centers, Lasik eye surgery clinics, and dental offices. A recognized industry advocate for the pursuit and embrace of technology to create an edge in commercial development, Tom is a sought-after speaker on the benefits of Integrated Project Development and synergistic retail rollouts.
