BURLINGTON, MA – Erland Construction has established two new groups as a part of the company’s growing expertise in the advanced technology/life sciences and special projects markets.
Daryl Leland, who joined Erland in 2015, has been appointed as the Group Manager of the Special Projects/Strategic Accounts Group and Dan Cobb, who has worked at Erland since 2016, is now the Group Manager for the Advanced Technology/Life Sciences Group.
“We are proud to name Daryl and Dan as the leaders of the Special Projects/Strategic Accounts Group and the Advanced Technology/Life Sciences Group respectively, as they both offer extensive knowledge in these markets and are dedicated to building and maintaining long-term relationships to help our clients succeed,” said Steve McDonald, President, Erland Construction. “Additionally, we would not be where we are today without the market acumen of our Academic, Corporate and Commercial Group Manager, Scott Bates, who brought Daryl and Dan on board while expanding these markets with our clients.”
Working in the construction industry for more than 15 years, Leland has experience in both project management and field engineering. Since joining Erland, Leland has grown the Special Projects Group’s (SPG) portfolio substantially as the Manager of Special Projects. A graduate of Keene State College and Nashua resident, Leland’s expertise includes dozens of challenging projects that often-required strict budget and schedule controls. Special Projects consistently applies innovative, cost-competitive solutions to complex field conditions for building upgrades, repurposed spaces, and tenant improvements that are tailored to meet and exceed a project’s unique needs. Strategic Accounts focuses on clients who begin their Erland relationship with Special Projects and continue working with Daryl and his team as their needs evolve.
With more than 10 years of experience in the construction industry, Cobb brought his broad experience of building and renovating cleanroom facilities and specialized lab environments to Erland, previously serving as the dedicated Advanced Technology/Life Sciences Manager. Cobb continues to offer his wide understanding of building for clients with technologically sophisticated or mechanically complex needs in controlled environments that often involves installing sensitive equipment in occupied production sites. Cobb is a graduate of Fitchburg State University and a resident of Worcester.
“As part of our mission to offer clients excellence, expertise and experience, we are excited to have Daryl and Dan move from Market Managers to Group Managers. With that comes full responsibility for the continued growth of these areas as well as staffing and oversight of each project and providing the exceptional client service for which we are known,” said Scott Bates, Vice President and Academic, Corporate and Commercial Group Manager/Vice President.
