Acella Construction Announces Leah Fitzgerald as Assistant Superintendent

PEMBROKE, MA, ISSUED AUGUST 28, 2018…Acella Construction Corporation, now celebrating its 15th year in business, today announced that Leah Fitzgerald of Hull, Massachusetts, has joined the firm as an Assistant Superintendent.

In this role, she supervises the execution of construction projects, including verifying the quality of work performed, and ensuring compliance with plans, specifications, contract requirements and safety regulations. She also acts as a liaison between the office, clients and subcontractors to safeguard a cooperative environment and resolve any issues that may arise.

Fitzgerald began her career in the construction industry on Boston’s “Big Dig” working for The BSC Group’s survey and mapping department as part of the team building Massport’s GIS (Geographical Information System). From there she was a contractor for the Federal Aviation Administration as a designer and then as a construction superintendent overseeing the construction of FAA facilities and navigational aids.

Prior to joining Acella, Fitzgerald was with CHA Consulting (the former Coler & Colantonio) working on the Northern Pass Transmission Project as a GIS administrator for the Right-of-Way and land acquisition efforts. Later she transferred into the firm’s software group and worked extensively on a solution that created a mobile data collection platform for the gas distribution industry, where she served as the implementation and training coordinator.

She is a graduate of Salem State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geography.

Fitzgerald is originally from Westwood, Massachusetts, and now lives on the Weir River in Hull with her husband Andrew. Spare time activities include personal fitness, boating and travel.

“I’m excited to refocus my career back toward construction,” said Fitzgerald, expressing gratitude at “being given the opportunity to get back into the industry I am passionate about and to be doing it with an amazing company.”

“What an outstanding wealth of experience and knowledge Leah brings to her role as Assistant Superintendent,” said Dave Dirubbo, founder and president of Acella Construction Corporation. “Her wide-ranging skills and genuine passion for the work we do is undeniable; we’re happy to have her on board.”

Working with Acella was great. They were always available to answer my questions and they kept me in the loop every step of the way. They were very flexible and patient and worked around our working schedule – sometimes coming in very early in the morning. Their work turned out wonderfully and they even painted a large wall that was not part of the scope to get the whole space looking shiny and new. This was my first renovation project and they made me look good! I would highly recommend Acella.
