We are pleased to welcome Mike Keough, our new Preconstruction Manager, leading our estimating efforts for our construction group, to Epstein. Mike is currently working on cost estimates for a new spice plant for Tajin which will be located outside of Guadalajara, Mexico as well as the Seaboard Farms Triumph Foods Pork Processing Plant in St. Joseph, Missouri.

Mike is a 1994 graduate of Christian Brothers University (Go Buccaneers!) in Memphis, TN with a degree in Civil Engineering. Mike has been in estimating/preconstruction for 20+ years. Early on in his career, his focus was on public/municipal projects (village halls, fire stations, etc.), he then shifted to retail (Costco / Walmart) and office. And, over the last 6-7 years, his experience has been mostly with design/build: medical office, senior apartments and industrial warehouse. During this timeframe Mike has worked at a variety of contracting firms including Tishman for 2 years, V3 Companies for 3, Ledcor for 10 years, and most recently, Mike spent 3 years with Alston/Panattoni.

A lifelong Chicago area resident, Mike currently resides in Naperville with his wife of 16 years, Lori, and their kids Lindsay (10) and Ryan (9). Most of his free time is spent on his kids' sports and activities, but when he can sneak it in, Mike enjoys golfing.

Lastly, once again welcome to the family Mike, we are very happy to have you with us!
