The construction team included Heery-Farrow, the Construction Program Manager, Ilidio Monteiro, the Portuguese General Contractor, and the FBO representative, Ballard.

As early as the initial site visit, we realized that FBO might benefit from a better way to manage overseas construction and local contractors.  Bassetti invited George Heery, an architect and founder of the Atlanta program management firm Heery Associates, to come to Lisbon to discuss a potential role for his firm.  My main memory of Heery is of him chasing our taxi on foot as we drove off to dinner.

Bassetti introduced George Heery to FBO, and as a result, Heery-Farrow, Ltd., Heery’s European branch, was hired as construction manager.  Heery staff came to Seattle during the Contract Documents phase to work with us on packaging the construction documents.

During construction we communicated with the FBO site representative and several Heery-Farrow staff, Frank Hundley and David Badder.  We had little interaction with the General Contractor after their selection interview.
