Construct U was developed by Host Jeremy Wright as an avenue to help educate young construction professionals. After spending years developing his skills as a builder, designer and project manager Jeremy was shocked to find the limited podcast offerings in the construction space for young professionals. And had experienced the struggle of being a young project manager without a support system. As an avid podcast listener himself Jeremy saw an opportunity to contribute value and thus Construct U was born.
Origin of Construct U
Jeremy is Construct U’s host. He is a construction manager and designer with a decade of design build and project management experience. He has directly managed over $700 million in construction covering numerous product types, client structures and contract styles domestically and internationally.
Jeremy brings value to a project by getting involved early and leveraging his unique combination of design and construction experience to create value engineering opportunities.
Moving into construction, Jeremy then uses his meticulous attention to detail to eliminate any scope gaps or communication breakdowns to keep the project on schedule and on track financially.
When Jeremy’s not recording podcasts he consults on projects specializing in Design / Build projects in the pre-construction phase. He also enjoys salsa, hitting the gym, getting out of his home in Chicago to find a decent mountain with some snow on it, fooling around with his guitar and of course listening to Podcasts!
