 Jim Rogers has over 25 years of experience in the construction industry, and has lead the development of many construction industry training and certification programs that are currently in use throughout North America.  He specializes in continuing education and the development of industry outreach courses, and has served as a faculty member at ASU’s Construction Management degree program, teaching a number of different graduate and undergraduate courses in concrete, safety and general construction management. Mr. Rogers established the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Center at Arizona State University and has produced and delivered many of the OTI Ed Center courses in both construction and general industry, including the train-the-trainer courses. He believes that safety, productivity and quality are inextricably linked, and that safety and health management must be incorporated as an integral part of any successful company management program. 

 After graduating from Wentworth Institute of Technology in 2012 with a degree in civil engineering, Mr. Schmid started with Consigli Construction Company, Inc. as a field engineer. After working on the 200,000 square foot world headquarters for Biogen Idec in Cambridge, he was promoted to Superintendent in May 2014.

In this role, Mr. Schmid is the full time, on-site representative for all field operations. He implements the project-specific safety and quality control programs and is responsible for the scheduling and management of all subcontractors. Mr. Schmid conducts weekly subcontractor meetings to reinforce the schedule milestones, quality goals and safety requirements of each trade. Recently, he managed the demolition and fit-out of a large, multi-tenant, life sciences building for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Investment Management Company.

He has also worked on projects at Holy Cross College in Worcester and Williams College in Western Massachusetts. Aside from his degree at Wentworth, Mr. Schmid holds three separate certifications with OSHA and a Construction Supervisor’s License.
