K. Cole Flickinger  Senior Vice President of Construction

My Alma Mater is….North Carolina State University

My proudest BPGS Construction moment or project was… building the award winning historic renovation of the Queen Theater in Wilmington.

I chose to work at BPGS Construction because… I chose to work at BPGS Construction upon graduating from college in 1999.  At the time, BPGS Construction was just starting up and had only four associates.  I declined offers from larger, well-known, established construction managers to take a chance on BPGS, a small start-up with young entrepreneurial owners at the time.  I wanted to be a part of a ground-up construction company tied to a developer with huge growth potential.

BPGS Construction is unlike any other company because… BPGS is a dynamic, creative, and innovative design-build construction company that directly serves a large private developer, The Buccini Pollin Group, as well as select third party clients . Our team consists of smart, forward-thinking individuals that always find a way to get the most difficult projects done for our very demanding clients. Since BPGS is associated with a development company, we are involved in the design, estimating, and value engineering from the very beginning of all projects.
