Mark Dinius has been named Vice President of Innovation & Technology at Satterfield and Pontikes Construction (S&P). In this role, Dinius will oversee all aspects of technology within the company. Tasked with overseeing the IT, Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), Systems Integration, and Analytics departments, Dinius’s primary goal will be identifying how the company is using technology and leveraging its capabilities.
“This new leadership position supports our core value, The System is the Key, and is imperative to provide our teams with the leading-edge technology to create greater efficiency in our project delivery,” says Nic Flannery, S&P President. “Mark fosters a culture of excellence through technology and operational support. His consistent drive to explore advancing technologies ensures the S&P Family of Companies will continue to evolve and lead the industry in the development and use of the next generation technology.”
Dinius’s experience includes VDC and working with fire protection systems in nuclear power plants. He was also heavily involved in the LAX Terminals 2 & 3 project, serving as the program’s BIM Manager and eventually being promoted to Project Controls Manager during his three years with the project. He was involved with BIM design coordination, estimating, budgeting, scheduling, and package turnover.
“I remember when Mark started with S&P right out of college, and this is an example of our commitment to promote and build leaders within our organization,” says Flannery. During his tenure at S&P, Dinius has been directly involved in almost 40 projects. The combined value of all these projects would be close to three billion dollars.
Dinius holds a Bachelors in Computer Graphics Technology with a focus in Construction and a minor in Computer Information Technology from Purdue University.
