With a long history of successful commercial, mission-critical and Design/Build projects at Cupertino Electric, Boncher is adept at managing the technical and budget-intensive aspects of large projects featuring technically complex systems.

While a member of CEI’s project management staff for more than 10 years, Brett managed projects ranging from data centers to educational institutions to casinos, regularly working on occupied facilities with strict construction parameters on a fast-track basis.
