Jacqueline Gonzalez

Preconstruction Manager

The PENTA Building Group

Smart, persevering and resourceful are all words that perfectly describe Jacky Gonzalez, who currently serves as a preconstruction manager at The PENTA Building Group. At just 34 years old, her multiple educational degrees and nearly a decade’s worth of experience in the industry are a few of the many reasons she is a woman to watch in construction.

 Gonzalez graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from Cal State LA in 2011 and a master’s degree in 2013. She then went on to gain experience in permitting and as a project engineer and senior estimator. Gonzalez joined PENTA in 2018 and recently celebrated two years at the firm as a preconstruction manager. In this role, she is responsible for determining the costs and evaluating all documentation associated with a project. This includes evaluating the construction site, budgeting, researching ways to reduce project costs, and collaborating with various departments to explain cost findings.
