Senior Vice President, CPR
Beckham discovered the satisfaction of working on complex construction projects while in the U.S. Navy helping to rebuild the Aircraft Carrier John F. Kennedy. That experience was the beginning of a path that lead him to Northern Arizona University where he received his Bachelor of Science in Construction Management and on to Los Angeles, CA where he worked on the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels and Getty Villa. After four years working on these and other high profile projects across the South West, Beckham left for Australia where he received his Master of Design Science in Sustainable Design from the University of Sydney. He spent the following eight years working as a client-side Project Manager and Design Consultant with multi-disciplinary engineering firms focused on ecologically sustainable design in Australia and in Los Angeles.
“The most important part of working in residential construction is understanding that every decision is a personal one to our Clients. They will live everyday with the work that we do and it will impact them in ways we cannot imagine. There is a great responsibility in that.”
Looking to return to construction management, Beckham was drawn to a unique opportunity to help restore, modernize, and expand an architecturally significant private residence on the coast of Santa Barbara, CA. There the hook was set for a career focused on the challenging and bespoke world of high end residential construction. Beckham left Santa Barbara in 2015 to join I-Grace as one of our Senior Project Managers. In his role, Beckham is engaged on a variety of projects and is the primary point of contact for several of our long-standing clients.
