Howell brings 36 years of experience in the construction industry

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Feb. 16, 2021 – Steelhead Building Group – a general contractor specializing in commercial construction in the healthcare, retail, office, mixed use, industrial and institutional industries – announced today that William Howell has joined the company as pre-construction manager. Howell brings with him 36 years of experience in the construction industry.

 Howell spent the first 11 years of his career in the casework/millwork industry and worked on projects throughout the southeastern part of the U.S. He then moved into a project manager position with American Constructors, Inc. and spent 19 years honing his estimating and project management skills. After leaving ACI as a senior project manager, he became director of pre-construction for Parkes Construction.
