Bellevue, WA (July 5, 2017) – With continued success in Seattle’s construction market, PCL Construction Services, Inc. is pleased to welcome six new team members to the Seattle office.
- Patrick Webber transferred to the Seattle office from Hawaii as a project manager. Although he began his career in British Columbia with PCL in 2000, Webber spent the last 15 years working in the Hawaii office. His projects have included the Four Seasons Manele Bay, Keola Lai condominiums, and Pulama Lanai. Webber has also been the recipient of a PCL Leadership Award.

His local project experience includes both the Portland and Seatac Air Traffic Control Towers, Central Link Light Rail, and The Bravern Signature Residences. Sprute has been with PCL since 1994.
- Mel Rostron has been a part of PCL since 2008. He recently rejoined the Seattle office after spending several years in both the Hawaii and California offices and running successful safety programs. Under Rostron’s safety management in California, he implemented the corporate and district safety program, and maintained a zero incident rating during that time. Rostron will manage the Health and Safety Program for Seattle.
- Richard Femenella is PCL’s newest superintendent for the Seattle office. Femenella joined PCL in 2014 and has spent the last few years working for the PCL Transportation Infrastructure Group on the South 200th Light Rail Extension in Seattle, and the Lake Barkley Bridge Replacement in Cadiz, KY. He will be working on the Boeing Access Road Rehabilitation project.
- Jared Gothard was promoted to Assistant Project Manager. Gothard started with PCL in 2012, and has worked on both the Cielo and Potala Towers, the South 200th Link Extension, and several airport projects including the current Baggage Optimization project for the Port of Seattle. In 2016, he was the winner of PCL’s Quality Innovation Award, and he served as the Seattle office Quality Champion.
- Brent Siegfried joined PCL as a field engineer and is a recent graduate from Washington State University with a bachelor of science in civil engineering and a minor in construction management. He’s working on the Arrive high-rise in downtown Seattle.
