Michael Maiorana is a Senior Project Manager for Pinchin’s Hazardous Building Materials (HAZ) Group and serves as the Group’s Practice Leader for the Southwestern Ontario region. Experienced in construction coordination and hazardous materials abatement, he possesses 12 years of well-rounded expertise in the industry. Working out of the Hamilton office, Michael thrives in his role; providing comprehensive support to fellow employees and ensuring high-quality project delivery for his clients – no matter the task.
A few years into acquiring his Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture, Project and Facilities Management from Conestoga College, Michael was certain he was gearing up for a career in the construction industry. He enrolled in an environmental course in his fourth year and was surprised by how much he enjoyed it. Fixed on his intended path, however, Michael attained a Diploma for Architectural Technology from Sheridan College and achieved the position of Project Coordinator for a general contracting firm. From there he built on his skills, working as an Architectural Designer for a digital projection and display technology firm and again as a Project Coordinator for his local municipality.
While Michael did enjoy the work and excelled at solving project challenges, he soon found himself reminiscing about that environmental course he attended in college. When a position opened for a Project Technologist in Pinchin’s HAZ Group in 2008, he took a leap of faith and applied for the role. His personability, unique experience, and reliability impressed his peers within the Group, and Michael swiftly climbed the ranks to become Senior Project Manager and Regional Practice Leader just 12 years later.
In addition to his post-secondary schooling, Michael is also a Certified Engineering Technologist (C.E.T.) with the Ontario Association of Engineering Technicians and Technologists. He applies his technical expertise most often for commercial, industrial and healthcare clients and facilities. In his capacity as Senior Project Manager, Michael offers project oversight to his clients in Hamilton, providing technical support and innovative solutions for tasks including asbestos consulting, hazardous materials assessments, and abatement activities. He recently delivered an asbestos assessment and consulting program for five hospitals in Southwestern Ontario, making efficient use of Pinchin’s in-house Hazardous Materials Information Database (HMIS) to collect, store and implement information and services while maintaining infection control throughout the project.
In his capacity as Regional Practice Lead, Michael focuses on the continued education and technical performance of his teams and their ability to provide consistent, superior service to the clients in their region. He is an involved thought leader in his community, hosting courses on topics surrounding Hazardous Building Materials for clients and co-workers alike. A stringent believer in personal growth, Michael instills in his teams a sense of personal accountability not only to their careers, but also to the clients they serve.
