Siena Welcomes Brandt Wild as Project Manager
CAMBRIDGE, MA – Siena Construction is pleased to announce the hiring of Brandt Wild as a Project Manager. As Project Manager, Brandt will oversee operation of Siena’s construction projects, including budgeting, schedule management, and coordination of information among project team members.
Brandt brings a decade of diverse professional experience in Project Management, Engineering, and Planning, which he emphasizes is a combination of “ecological design, renewable energy systems, and coordination”. He served as Project Consultant at Chapman Construction/Design in Newton, MA. Project highlights included the Mass Audubon’s new Environmental Learning Center, a ground-up net positive building on Drumlin Farm, as well as an interior renovation at the Toyota Training Center in Mansfield MA. Previously at Jendoco Construction in Pittsburgh, PA, Brandt worked on renovations of the Michael Baker Science and Engineering Building at Penn State University, and the Orthos office renovation – a high end core/shell and interior fit-out within an historic high-rise building.
Brandt also has demonstrated a unique exploratory vision in exhibitions which combine art and architecture disciplines. As a F.I.N.E. Artist resident at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, Brandt designed, built, and installed a camera obscura installation within a 10-ft. diameter geodesic sphere made of reclaimed wood.

I’m excited to welcome Brandt to Siena.”
Brandt has also held Internships at Pittsburgh-based architecture firms DRS Architects, and Cochran Associates. He holds a Master’s Degree in Architecture from Savannah College of Art and Design, and a Bachelor’s Degree from University of Vermont. He is a member of the Master Builder’s Association, the U.S. Green Building Council, the Green Building Alliance, and the National Council Architectural Registration Board. Brandt lives in Nashua, New Hampshire with his wife and son.
