Paul Schmitt, RA
As Construction Administrator, Paul serves as Schooley Caldwell’s representative onsite during construction, and his main responsibility is to monitor the construction for conformance with the plans and specifications. His role includes responding to questions from contractors and material suppliers; reviewing shop drawings and submittals; issuing clarifications and minor changes to the documents and tracking all changes; reviewing and certifying contractor payment applications; documenting construction progress via multiple methods including field reports and photos; and producing record or “as-built” drawings upon completion of construction.
Paul is a registered architect in Ohio and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture from The Ohio State University. His extensive experience allows him to effectively communicate with designers, owners, and contractors in their “languages” to provide a smoothly run and built project. He brings a thorough understanding of construction techniques and methods and is an invaluable asset to any project.
As it turns out, Paul is also our one and only knight. During his last semester in college he studied architecture in Switzerland, and received sufficient credits to graduate there. As part of the graduation ceremonies, Paul and his fellow graduates were taken to a castle and knighted, thereby entrusted forever with protecting the sovereignty of the country (true story!).
