Working with and overseeing a diverse team of architects, engineers and planners, Becker's main duties included existing building condition analysis, master plan campus layout development and schedule/cost model development.

When U.S. Equities served as the owner's representative for the seven story 242,000 square foot, $135 million Comer Children's Hospital, Becker handled the over-all project management and coordination, including input on project schedule, quality and cost management.
