As MATT Construction’s SVP of Estimating, Hakim Khalil leads a staff who are dedicated to the company’s reputable preconstruction services and is a master of conceptual design estimating, especially as it pertains to planning MATT’s many unique, one-of-a-kind projects. He supports project management teams and arms clients and design teams with the rigorous information that they need to make sound project decisions. He approaches every project from the standpoint of constructability first, followed by detailed cost analysis. If an initial design is cost-prohibitive, Hakim is a master at coming up with alternative methods, materials and construction strategies that can keep the design within the budget parameters without sacrificing design.
Before joining MATT in 2006 as VP of Estimating, Hakim spent eleven years with Gordon and Williams. During his tenure there he worked on many high profile sports, entertainment and studio facilities with extremely challenging schedule constraints, including the Fox Network Center in Century City–the first digital television station built in the U.S. Hakim also did extensive work at Dodger Stadium. Prior to that Hakim spent seven years with a large local developer/general contractor in south Orange County where he worked on commercial office development and industrial R & D type development.
Hakim graduated as a civil engineer from the University of Southern California.
