    Gregory A. Page, a UMES alumnus (1996) and president and CEO of Page Building Group, is the speaker Nov. 6 for the 10th annual Roger R. Blunt Construction Management Technology Lecture Series.  

    Page will address UMES students, faculty, industry peers and community members at an 11 a.m. presentation in the Student Services Center Theater on the topic, “Minority Participation, The Myth and The Truth.” 

    A native of Washington, D.C., Page interned while a student at UMES at MeDevitt & Street in Washington and the Pepper Construction Company in Chicago, where he landed his first full-time job in the industry. 

    For the past 22 years, Page has been involved in construction projects around the country such as the $456 million Music City Center (Nashville), $210 million General Services Administration headquarters (Washington, D.C.) renovation, $6.4 million Blueridge Community Health Center (Hendersonville, N.C.) and the $6.6 million Adamsville Regional Medical Center (Atlanta), which have earned him the ACEC Grand Iris Award for Engineering Excellence, the AIA National Healthcare Design Award, the CMAA Best in Class and the ABC Pyramid Award for Excellence in Construction. 

    “We are proud of Mr. Page and his accomplishments in the construction industry and admire his willingness to share his expertise.  His success demonstrates the quality of education and preparation UMES provides its students and highlights their potential in the construction management technology program,” said Dr. Joseph Arumala, interim chair of UMES' Department of Technology. 

    A believer in continuing education, Page is currently pursuing a Master of Science Degree at Drexel University in construction science and project management.  His work motto:  “Planning is integral, collaboration is key and the result of those two is an uninterrupted workflow that allows the project team to manage the risk and exceed the expectations of the client.”
