James M. Hatch'S Overview

James M. Hatch

I have the benefit of a rare combination of experience in Project Controls on AQCS, fossil power and nuclear projects along with an extensive background in industrial, commercial and residential construction. I believe that this mix of experiences gives me additional insight into not only how to administer project controls but why it is so important to the overall success of a project.
