Spotlight: Kirk MacGowan


Kirk began his construction career with Sierra as an intern in the summer of 1997. Upon graduating from the University of Washington with a double major in Construction Management and Architecture, Kirk began full time as Project Engineer. Since that time, he’s worked his way to a Senior Project Manager, now overseeing multiple projects ranging from industrial distribution centers to automotive dealerships, as well as city halls and other public works projects. You will always find Kirk with his green pen.

Notable Projects:
Sammamish Library
Harbor Pacific Bottling
Atlantic Central Bus Base

What brought you to Sierra?
I needed an internship for my degree. Andy Bley was my fraternity brother and he was working at Sierra so I asked if he could connect me with the company. The rest is history.

What is your favorite pastime?
I’m a sucker for the Jack Reacher books. The movies were ok. Tom Cruise was a horrible casting for that role though.

Where do you find yourself on the weekends?
Being family man and taking trips to Seabrook, near Pacific Beach.
