CAITLIN CAPPA NUNEZ
Director of Project Management
Caitlin acts as Project Manager for Proyecto’s designer homes, working hand in hand with clients and subcontractors to the ultimate end goal of a project that ends on time, on budget, with a designer touch. Caitlin approaches projects with a mind for detail, a client-focused attitude, and skills in problem solving and team management, tackling everything with both a ready smile and over 8 years in construction project management behind her. Whether working through design with both the architect and the client, or managing subcontractors through the complexities of scheduling, she is able to tackle all construction elements with the client’s goals as her own.
