When Andy isn’t working or fighting for our industry, without question, he is spending time with his family. You would be able to check their personal calendar and see that they all have an outdoor activity of traveling, hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing or boating scheduled together nearly each and every weekend, unless it is a weekend of coaching the kids in one of their sports.

Jamie’s interest in construction started in 2006, when she worked in the contents and marketing division of her father’s construction company, ACI Inc. After receiving her Bachelor’s in Psychology from The University of Massachusetts Lowell, she held marketing roles at various companies. She eventually decided she wanted to expand her experience and accepted a position at a residential interior design company doing project management. Jamie soon realized her passion and expertise were in relationship building rather than operations, and thus she found her way out of project management and into business development. Jamie worked as Director of Business Development for another well-known Southern California general contractor, where she was able to leverage all her past experience and establish many strong industry connections. Once the opportunity arose at Next Phase, Jamie was excited to jump on board to lead the future company growth.
Jamie is passionate about fostering genuine connections with industry partners. She uses an innovative and more personal approach to networking. Her philosophy is simple: “Be a good human and help others without an agenda.” This philosophy has led to many deeply-rooted relationships in the residential and commercial real estate development arena. She uses mindfulness to connect industry partners, so that the synergy between the chosen project players – from architect to developer to GC – is highly successful.
Although Jamie is very passionate about her career, when she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, golfing, scuba diving, snowboarding, wine tasting and cuddling with her two fur babies.

His primary focus was on concrete and framing, but he is also able to perform most trades at a journeyman level. Throughout the years Buck ventured out to many different disciplines which ranged from heavy civil to mid rise commercial construction. He developed the ability to effectively manage projects and teams, and paired with his on the field experience he has become invaluable to the success of many completed projects. Aside from his passion for construction, his happiest moments are shared with his five wonderful children and wife.

Chip attended California State University Sacramento for Construction Management and has construction in his blood as his father and grandfather were contractors. Seeing a concept turn into a physical monument that houses families and being part of that process doesn’t get old for Chip. Chip enjoys problem solving with the team and the collaboration needed to make the project become a reality. It has been said that Chip’s superpower is his attention to detail. He uses it to ensure assemblies within the plans are not only buildable in the field but also meet the budget and design intent of the ownership group. Chip is proud to have worked his way through the ranks in the field to become Project Manager. Another of Chip’s accomplishments include having managed estimating and pre-construction on over 9,000 multi-family units throughout California. When Chip is not in the field, you will find him spending time with family and friends, traveling, working on his house or golf swing.
