In recognition of their contributions to Reynolds’ growth and success, the company has promoted Adam Rickard to building information modeling design manager, James Kautz to superintendent, and Nikolas Kindya to assistant superintendent.
In his new role as building information modeling (BIM) design manager, Rickard will oversee Reynolds’ transition from AutoCAD®-based software to Revit®/BIM software. Since joining Reynolds in 2012, Rickard has served as a computer-aided drafting and design technician and a mechanical commissioning associate. He received an associate degree in computer-aided drafting and design from York Technical Institute.
“Transitioning to BIM software is an exciting development for the company, one that will benefit clients, develop skills for employees, and aid in recruitment of technical staff,” said David Angle, chief executive officer of Reynolds. “Adam has effectively delivered mechanical documents for design projects and has the technical skills and vision that will help him succeed in this role.”
As superintendent, Kautz will maintain oversight of at-risk construction projects and proactively resolve construction issues to reduce construction costs and impacts. He joined Reynolds in 2012 as a carpenter and foreman for Reynolds Restoration Services and was most recently an assistant superintendent on projects at UPMC Pinnacle. Kautz received OSHA 10-Hour Construction Training and holds a Health Care Construction Certificate from the American Society for Healthcare Engineering.
“Jim is fiercely committed to the success of his project teams and his clients,” said Angle. “He has been instrumental in leading field coordination and demolition scopes at multiple buildings, and we’re pleased to recognize his ability to improvise and adapt to achieve project success.”
Kindya joined Reynolds in 2018 as an assistant project manager and will now serve as an assistant superintendent, a position in which he’ll provide additional field supervision. He holds a bachelor’s degree in structural design and construction engineering technology from The Pennsylvania State University.
“Nik joined us upon college graduation last year and quickly made a considerable contribution to Reynolds’ growth in western Pennsylvania,” said Angle. “He has shown a great capacity to learn and lead and he’ll excel in his new field-based role.”
