Erland Promotes Matt Pugh & Jacob Byrne to Project Manager

Burlington, MA – Erland Construction is pleased to announce the promotion of both Matt Pugh and Jacob Byrne to Project Manager.

Pugh started as Assistant Project Manager at Erland in 2021 and hit the ground running. His first project with the firm was 55-acres of enabling work and infrastructure upgrades, including demolishing several existing buildings on a mixed-use development in Woburn. He proved to be an asset taking on more responsibility as the project progressed, diligently communicating with the client, and coordinating with the subcontractors, abutters, utility providers, and the city to ensure successful completion. In Pugh’s latest endeavor, he has taken on leading the renovation of a 5,600sf ice rink at The Fessenden School. 
Since joining Erland in 2018 as a Project Engineer, Byrne has quickly climbed the ranks to Project Manager. He is professional in his communication, tactful with coordination, and has become a humble leader with his team. With over 1.4 million square feet of construction experience under his belt, he has developed an understanding of our clients’ needs and expectations, ensuring their confidence throughout the project.

“We’re excited to have both Matt Pugh and Jacob Byrne assume the role of Project Manager” said Steve McDonald, President, Erland Construction. “Their maturity, communication skills and work ethic will support our commitment to exceptional client experience and developing collaborative, long-term relationships.”
