This is what people have had to say about David Umstot and his facilities management team while he was Vice Chancellor at San Diego Community College District. 

  • "CMAA San Diego chose to honor Dave because he is a local owner who has shown outstanding commitment in support of CMAA.  His wholehearted venture into lean construction methods, integrated project delivery and pull planning has invigorated many of our members to explore how they can improve the construction business and add more value to their clients. Lastly, our chapter is benefitting from Dave’s experiences by adding seminar content that reflects the techniques he and his team have used and refined at SDCCD." 

  Arthur Serata, President of the CMAA San Diego Chapter

  • "Your work has been extraordinary. You and your team have set the bar for efficiency, opportunity, and innovation."

   Mary Graham, San Diego Community College District Trustee

  • "You and your team's accomplishments have been legendary."

   Fred Harris, Assistant Vice Chancellor, California Community College System Office

  • "Leadership is one of the most important qualities of a professional construction manager and Dave Umstot possesses an abundance of it.  Not only does he try innovative practices, he shares his experiences so that others can improve their construction programs.  I’m always interested in what Dave will come up with next … I wish we had more folks like him in the industry.”
