W.M. Jordan’s Chad Blalock, has been with the company for over 6 years. Chad is a registered Professional Engineer and LEED Accredited Professional.

Chad started at W. M. Jordan as an MEP Project Engineer but now serves as the Manager for the company’s Building Systems Group. In this capacity, Chad is responsible for maintaining W. M. Jordan’s high standards of customer service in all areas of building performance and operations. He prides himself on taking time to understand the unique needs of each and every client in addition to focusing on these fundamental desires that are common to every customer:

Chad has touched a number of W.M. Jordan’s biggest projects over the last several years – one of the most challenging, he says, was VSU’s Hunter McDaniel Hall. With only months to complete the building’s renovation between May and August, the W. M. Jordan project team measured the project schedule in hours, rather than days. An unmet deadline would have meant no chemistry, physics, biology, psychology, or nursing labs for the entire university. In the end, W. M. Jordan was able to turn the building over to VSU a full 6 months prior to the contractual deadline due to a tremendous team effort which included a focus on the building systems from planning/preconstruction through to the completion of building commissioning.

While he enjoys all aspects of his role at W. M. Jordan, Chad is particularly passionate about the collaborative nature of design/build projects and CM projects with a design-assist approach. Being afforded an early opportunity to work as a key team member on the Owner/Architect/Contractor team allows him to leverage his knowledge of MEP design, his background as a Facility Engineer on the owners’ side of the table, and on the ground lessons learned from the construction field. Chad believes that W. M. Jordan’s innovative Building Systems Group exists for the sole purpose of ensuring that our clients’ expectation for getting best in class building lifecycle performance is exceeded.
