Swinerton Invests in Critical Facilities, Appoints Dave Higgins to Lead Team

Swinerton Builders has appointed Dave Higgins, Jr., to lead its Critical Facilities team as senior vice president and division manager. The appointment is in response to strong demand for data center construction services to support mission-critical operations. Higgins’ role will span all divisions, coordinating current and future data center construction and project management opportunities nationally.

“The market has responded strongly to our approach, as evidenced by our growing backlog. We’re investing in the right resources to maintain our unblemished track record of quick, reliable delivery,” says Higgins. “Our work in data centers, renewable energy power plants, and utility control rooms allows us to constantly refresh our technology and methods to maintain our leadership in critical facility environments.”

Mike Re, CEO of Swinerton, confirms, “As a 125-year-old company, we’ve evolved over the decades to meet the highly specialized demands of critical facility and data center construction. We expect to continue our momentum within the critical facilities market, and Dave is the proven leader to take us forward.”

Higgins previously managed Swinerton’s Sacramento division, where he integrated the former HMH Builders into the Swinerton family and led the Sacramento region through a period of unprecedented growth. Throughout his 30-year tenure, Higgins has led the company’s adoption and use of advanced technology and pursuit of emerging markets. He is a LEED Accredited Professional and a founding board member of the Center for Innovation in Design and Construction. He is also the national chairperson of the Associated General Contractors of America National Project Delivery Forum and serves on the board of the nonprofit Swinerton Foundation.
