Kevin helped us all the way from the selection of the architect through the stages of Schematic, Design Development, and Construction Documents. His knowledge of the process is immense, his attention to detail is amazing, his foresight is very helpful. We appreciate his expertise and know that our project will be successful thanks to his leadership. –Msgr Larry Pichard, Pastor for St. Francis of Assisi
Among the candidates we interviewed, he stood out because he possessed the unique combination of skill, vision, grit and spirituality. He is all about relationships. His vision and methods of team-building have created an atmosphere of collaboration that has already served us extremely well. I can honestly say that Kevin has been a blessing for St. Gabriel. We consider him part of the parish family. – Rev. Don Zeiler, Pastor for St Gabriel the Archangel
Kevin is a graduate of Purdue University with deep development and project management experience. Kevin is a man of faith, who has let his faith guide him in his life's journey. As a result, in recent years, Kevin has been able to transform his vocation into his avocation, and he is currently spending 100% of his time working on projects for Catholic communities. Kevin's job is that of trusted advisor--to Father, to Deacon Denis, to the BC, and to the entire St. Rita Community.
Kevin's formal role and title is Owner's Representative. But, think of him more as a conductor -- a conductor of a large and complex orchestra that represents all the people and organizations that will actually design and build the pieces and parts of this rather intricate project. – St. Rita Building Chair Matt Molash –
Devcon has saved us time, money, and handled many stressful and complicated negotiations for the parish, invaluable asset to our company. Devcon has the experience with the Diocese’s requirements and will be very effective leading your committee through them. We have found Kevin Bird to be a steward of his faith and profession and a trusted project manager. – Steve Hulsey, Building Committee Chair
And through these companies that are helping us, Devcon, BCDM, Poiesis Architecture, and Hill & Wilkinson, we have encountered the possibility to create a TEAM that is not working on a regular project, but a project for God – Rev. Jose Luis Esparza, Pastor for Good Shepherd
