Burke Construction Group Announces the addition of New Shareholders & Principals

 

LAS VEGAS, MAY 22, 2018 – Burke Construction Group is pleased to announce the recent addition of Dimitri Mihaloliakos and Thad Lawrence as Shareholders and Principals.

Dimitri Mihaloliakos, a 22-year construction professional and Vice President of Estimating at Burke, previously held the role of Chief Estimator during his 13-year tenure.  Dimitri has built a strong reputation in the construction industry, remaining active in the commercial development community, where he serves as a member of the Nevada Contractors Association (NCA), National Association of Industrial and Office Parks (NAIOP) and the leadership organization, Vistage. A graduate of the UNLV Construction Management Program with a minor in Architectural Design, Dimitri has volunteered his time and knowledge as a visiting professor at his alma mater.

With 20 years of industry knowledge, Vice President of Preconstruction Thad Lawrence, LEED AP, distinguished himself early-on since joining Burke in 2007.  During his tenure with the company, he has worked in the capacity of Project Manager – joining the Estimating and Preconstruction team in 2010, where he merged his years of experience in Operations.  Since that time, he was promoted to a Senior Estimator and Director of Preconstruction Services, where his leadership has been instrumental in delivering numerous successful projects – notably, serving as a certified U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Construction Quality Management specialist leading our Federal Projects Division as well as the Development Manager and Project Executive for our Strategic Partners.  Committed to industry growth and education, Thad remains actively involved in organizations such as NCA, NAIOP and Vistage.

Both executive team members have worked diligently over the years – continuing to provide leadership and strategic direction for our continued growth and success.  In addition to Partner/Principal Jim Colegrove, who heads Burke’s Special Projects Group, President & CEO, Kevin Burke noted that he “could not be more proud to welcome Dimitri and Thad into ownership of the company, a commitment which my brother and Founder would have been equally as proud.”

Legacy Traditional Schools Opens North Valley Campus

Legacy Traditional Schools Opens North Valley Campus

Legacy Traditional Schools, Arizona’s highest rated-network of K-8 charter schools, commemorated the grand opening of the school’s first campus in Nevada at a ribbon-cutting ceremony in North Las Vegas.

 

Legacy Traditional School – North Valley is welcoming 1,260 students for the 2017-2018 school year. Many of those students, and their families attended Tuesday afternoon’s ceremony before they proceeded to the school’s first Meet the Teacher night.

“It was exciting to meet so many of our new students this evening, and welcome them and their families to our school. We’re looking forward to watching them learn and grow this year,” said Tom Ellis, principal of Legacy Traditional School – North Valley.

The new $20 million campus, which was completed by Las Vegas-based Burke Construction in six months, boasts 80,000 square feet that houses 41 classrooms, offices, a cafeteria, and a gym. The campus also includes athletic fields and playgrounds.

“We are thrilled to welcome Legacy Traditional School to our city, not only to serve our residents and the many families moving into North Las Vegas but as a resource for children across the valley,” said North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee, who shared remarks during the ceremony. “Legacy will instill in students a strong educational foundation and a love of learning that will help grow our workforce and ensure that our region continues to succeed.”

The new charter school employs a staff and faculty of 90.

“We’re looking forward to being able to contribute to North Las Vegas as both a premier place to receive an education and a premier place to work,” said Aaron Hale, executive director and co-founder of Legacy Traditional Schools. “Our expansion into Nevada has opened the door for us to provide an unparalleled, A-rated education for our students in this community, and we are happy to be a part of North Las Vegas, and soon, Henderson.”

Founded on the principle that school choice should not rely on affordability, Legacy Traditional Schools are tuition-free public charter schools.

The new North Las Vegas campus is Legacy’s 13th school and is the first campus to open outside of Arizona. Plans are underway for Legacy Traditional Schools’ Henderson campus.
