KYLE W. PEACOCK
President / CEO
Kyle Peacock has solid, proven experience in all types of interior construction including offices, medical buildings, labs and retail. He is President / CEO for Peacock Construction, Inc.
Kyle completed the renovation of a 22,000 square-foot forensic science lab for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The phased project was completed while the lab was occupied, and significant coordination with lab personnel was required to keep key operations up and functioning. Construction in the existing lab required a full mechanical upgrade in order to meet current codes while making room for new lab requirements.
Medical offices are another specialty, and Kyle has completed several doctors’ offices. Most recently, he completed a 4,000 square-foot office at the John Muir Outpatient Center in Brentwood. The project began in shell space, and included exam rooms, doctor’s offices, and a nurse’s lab. The fast track project was finished a week ahead of schedule.
Prior to joining Peacock, Kyle worked in San Francisco as an assistant construction manager for Boston Properties. While there, his largest project involved a $20 million remodel for the international law firm of Bingham McCutchen LLP. The project took 2-1/2 years to complete, and involved approximately 125,000 square feet of office space, and 25,000 square feet of retail space.
Problem solving, detailed planning and timely project completion are among his key strengths. He is also skilled at promoting effective teamwork, an essential part of taking a project from concept to reality.
Kyle graduated from the University of San Diego, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration, with an emphasis in marketing and finance.
