Kris Salamon

Vice President, Director Life Sciences

Hired as a project manager in 2004, Kris steadily progressed to his current position as vice president and director of life sciences. His responsibilities include managing multiple projects for a select list of key PIDC clients, along with the oversight of additional projects. Kris is also tasked with the mentoring of project managers, assistant project managers and superintendents under his direct report.

With 25+ years in the construction industry, including both field and office experience, Kris consistently brings cost effective real-world solutions to the table. Concentrating on life sciences and advanced technologies, his resume includes labs, vivariums, cleanrooms, cGMP, manufacturing, infrastructure upgrades and associated first-class offices.

Kris plays a vital part in all aspects of project development. During preconstruction, he develops initial cost models and schedules, reviews early design documents for constructability, and regularly offers design assistance — particularly in adaptive reuse situations.

In subsequent stages of development, Kris handles procurement, equipment expediting and implementation. He continually works with the client and end-users to confirm the design/construction is working to achieve the desired end result. Our clients value his innate sense of urgency and commitment, his keen eye for on-time, below-budget cost control, and the detailed turnover documents provided by Kris and his team.

A graduate of the University of Maine with a degree in Construction Management Technology, Kris has also obtained a Construction Supervisor License and completed OSHA 30-hour training.

Kris resides in Taunton, MA with his wife Kim and daughters, Mollie and Madeline. In his personal time, he can be found participating in Krav Maga training, as well as fishing the numerous bodies of water in the area.
