ALI SHAMS
Senior Project Manager
Shawmut Design and Construction

From Dubai to New York to Los Angeles, Ali Shams has built some of the most impressive structures in each city, shaping the fabric of different communities. As senior project manager, he is currently leading the construction of what will be one of the largest cross-laminated timber buildings in Los Angeles at 843 N Spring Street. The five-story, 122,000-square-foot office and retail building is environmentally forward-thinking and is a model for sustainable office design, incorporating a rooftop PV array, bike stalls and EV charging stations, and biophilic materials inside and out.

Since joining Shawmut, the projects Shams manages have quadrupled in size and scope. As Shawmut’s West region has grown, so has Shams’ skillset and expertise in innovative construction delivery methods, as well as his business acumen in both preconstruction and construction—from budgeting and scheduling to logistics and implementation.
