Burke Construction Group is pleased to announce the addition of Mike Sims, DBIA, LEED AP as the Vice President of Operations.

With more than 26 years in the construction industry, Mike brings extensive construction management experience and a successful track record in executive leadership. With excellent professional and intangible skills, Mike will be an integral asset to Burke’s continued development. In 1996, Mike began his Construction Management career in Las Vegas with a local construction firm and spent over 13 years with LendLease, a globally integrated real estate, investment and construction group serving as Vice President/Project Executive. Some of his high-profile projects include state-of-the-art and multi-million-dollar facilities including Oceanside Plaza in California, VA Healthcare Center and the Horizon Uptown Mixed-Use Development. Most notably, Mike was a fundamental piece in the development of the Privatized Army Lodging (PAL) program. As Regional Senior Construction Manager, he oversaw the design-build operations for a large portion of the project. With an initial budget of $1.5 Billion, this program included renovations and construction of new hotel buildings, totaling 12,500 hotel rooms stretching over 41 Army installations. Throughout his illustrious career, Mike has collaborated on all fronts of the industry, leading both Construction & Development Operations teams.

Mike holds a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management and a Minor in Business Management from Brigham Young University (BYU). Mike was most recently with Shawmut, a national design and construction firm as Senior Director of Major Projects for their Western Region. We are incredibly excited to welcome Mike and his family to the Burke team.

Burke is also proud to announce our current Vice President of Operations, Thad Lawrence, will transition back into the role of Corporate Vice President to continue to focus on strategic growth opportunities.
