Jessica Landon is a Construction Program Manager with over a decade of experience in planning, designing, and building educational facilities in California. In addition to her expertise in California K-12 school facility construction and modernization, she has experience managing heavy civil, utility, and transportation public works projects.  She is proficient in numerous PMIS systems, Oracle P6 scheduling software, RS Means Online estimating software, and BIM software programs.  Completing the C.A.S.H. School Facilities Leadership Academy in 2018 has given her a unique skillset as a Construction Program Manager, allowing her to provide enhanced services to our education clients.

Jessica is currently managing the construction of a new 45,000 SF classroom building and adjacent softball/athletic field at Millikan High School for Long Beach Unified School District.  As a Lease-Leaseback (LLB) project, she is partnering with the LLB Developer to deliver the project on time and within the Guaranteed Maximum Price of $26 Million.

In her previous role as the Program Manager of Inglewood Unified School District’s (IUSD) $150 Million Capital Improvements Program, she oversaw the development of the District’s first Educational Specifications, District-wide facilities condition assessments, personally developed the master budget and schedule, implemented best practices related to General Obligation Bonds, and planned for future improvements and funding needs. In addition, she directly oversaw the design, construction, and commissioning of all projects completed though the Program.

Prior to her tenure at IUSD, Jessica was responsible for the change management and negotiation process for all projects carried out under the Long Beach Community College (LBCC) Bond Program as the Program Estimator. Her estimator duties also included developing ROM, square foot, assembly, and unit cost estimates; reviewing third party estimates; and providing value engineering and life cycle costing services.  As a Construction Manager at LBCC, Jessica oversaw the construction of a new storm drainage retention and pump system installed under an existing parking lot at LBCC’s Pacific Coast Campus. This project was completed on-time and with less than 2% utilization of change order contingency funds.

Jessica Landon’s experience in a variety of roles in facilities planning and development makes her an effective manager on-site and a leader within Cordoba’s Educational Facilities Sector.
