History

We have invested over 25 years growing our Construction Services Division nationwide. In fact, the origins of Menemsha are in providing Construction Services and Construction Management. Since our founders, John Daigle and Tom Speroni, met at the University of Denver, their vision has been to provide a better Construction Services solution for the retail and restaurant markets. And because of the company’s success and growth, we’ve expanded our services to include banking, hospitality, commercial office, c-stores, and big box markets, with higher education and healthcare coming on strong. Our team of highly qualified, skilled, and experienced construction professionals continues to drive results for our customers.

Leadership

Jim Carey

CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT DIRECTOR
Experience. Knowledge. Collaboration. These come together under Jim’s leadership of the project delivery process. It starts with having extensive experience in retail, foodservice and financial sectors. And in over three decades of multi-unit commercial retail development, Jim has a deep background in planning, construction, project management and facility assessment.  This breadth of knowledge results in a user-centered approach to integrated building design and construction. To all this, Jim adds his exceptional collaboration and communication skills.

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.

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.

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.
