KAI announced the expansion of its Build Group with the addition of Project Managers Cameron Welch, Adam Link and David Bradley at its St. Louis headquarters.
“We welcome the newest professionals to our Build team, Cameron, Adam and David," said Brian Arnold, president of KAI Build. "As project managers, each is responsible for ensuring projects are executed according to plan, meeting customer needs and expectations. We are confident in each of their abilities, with their extensive construction and project management experience, that they will be tremendous assets to our team.”
Welch has nearly a decade of construction industry experience, including several years as an architect. His experience working within critical environment markets, highly complex chemical manufacturing and pharmaceutical laboratory facilities has given him a unique insight into complicated mechanical and electrical systems. He believes that the owner always comes first and should be included in the construction process at all times.
During his career, Welch has worked in the pharmaceutical/laboratory, manufacturing, industrial, office, high-end finish, and multi-family industries. Prior to KAI, he worked as a project manager for McGrath & Associates in St. Louis. He has also worked in architectural drafting and design for SP Architects in St. Louis where he managed design projects from initial programming through construction completion.
He has a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies from the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri and is a member of the AGCMO Young Executives Club. Welch lives in Webster Groves, Missouri, with his wife, Lauren. Outside of work, he enjoys house projects, golfing and duck hunting.
Link has worked his way up the ranks in the construction industry through the trades to project manager and has performed every job in between. His areas of expertise include project management, carpentry, low-income housing, senior housing, new construction and remodels. Over the course of his career, he has become proficient in the creation, implementation and management of construction budgets and schedules.
He is a Licensed Journeyman Carpenter with over 14 years of construction industry experience. He has an associate degree in Applied Science Construction Management from Saint Louis Community College and a Bachelor of Arts in Management from Webster University in Webster Groves, Missouri. He has an OSHA 10-hour Hazard Awareness Certification, OSHA 10-hour Occupational Safety and Health Certification, and a Procore Certification.
Prior to KAI, Link worked as a project manager for Raineri Construction in St. Louis and as a project manager and superintendent for Double Diamond Construction in Crystal City, Missouri.
He lives in St. Louis with his wife Leslie and son Abel. He enjoys spending time with his family, construction projects, camping, hunting and playing the guitar.
Bradley has nearly 20 years of construction industry experience in St. Louis, Nebraska and North Carolina. His areas of expertise include education, hospitality, multi-family, retail and residential.
The majority of his career has been in project management and field operations management where he has honed his skills at communicating with experts and presenting plan strategies to establish expectations, provide best options and engage others to drive accuracy, improve quality and ensure milestones are accomplished.
Prior to KAI, Bradley worked as a project manager for Pinnacle Contracting and Don C. Musick Construction Co., both in St. Louis.
He has associates degrees in Civil Engineering Technology and Construction Technology from Saint Louis Community College.
