PAC WEST works with customers to identify the scope of work and develop budget and schedules for projects. During construction, the Project Manager monitors progress to ensure that the specified technical services and the resulting fabricated and supplied products are on track to complete the project as desired and on schedule. The Project Manager coordinates with subcontractors and suppliers to achieve the work, and addresses issues to avoid or resolve problems encountered. The most important role of the Project Manager is representing the interests of customers.

Nathan Makowski:
Estimator

I have over 40 years in the cabinet and millwork industry, starting in my father's woodshop in 1977 building custom cabinets for homes. In 1983, after 4 years in the Navy, I returned to the cabinet making industry and have remained ever since. In 1984, I relocated to Reno, NV and began working with commercial cabinets on a large scale in Hotel Casino and commercial projects, as well as high end residential. I owned my own commercial cabinet shop for 18 ½ years in Reno, and bring with me an expertise and intimate knowledge of all aspects of the commercial cabinet industry from that unique viewpoint, including estimating, procurement, logistics, design and project management.
