Revival Design Studio announced the hiring of construction manager, Jeff Swick earlier this year. This new position at Revival Design Studio is a result of identifying a missing piece of the architecture, interior design and construction process — construction management.
"From keeping contractors on schedule to nailing budgetary targets to organizing makers of signage, casework, furniture, and specialty fixtures, a construction manager bridges the gap between designer and contractor," stated Cally Lange, Owner and Principal Architect at Revival Design Studio. "This valuable position is certain to add immeasurable value to Revival's current and future projects."
Jeff Swick began his professional journey as a teen working for his family's construction company in Fort Jennings, Ohio. To strengthen his knowledge base and leadership skills in the construction industry, he attended The Ohio State University earning a degree in Construction Management.
Swick spent two years working for the Ohio Industrial Compliance Department. He rejoined the family business as a fifth-generation owner and carpenter, focusing on high-end residential and light commercial construction for nearly twenty years. With his father's retirement, Swick made the tough decision to close the construction business to focus on his real passion, construction and management.
He received a conveted two-year contract position at Marathon as a project manager in their asset development department, overseeing tens of millions of dollars in construction projects over a two-year period. Swick held roles of Director of Institutional Advancement and Development at Delphos St. John's Schools in charge of Fundraising Campaigns, Alumni Relations, Enrollment Management and Marketing/Communications before joining the Revival Design Studio in March of 2020.
Swick also founded a non-profit foundation, The Playing Hardball Against ALS Foundation that supports patients and Families battling ALS.
