Meticulous jobsite planner mentors the next generation of builders
Turner Construction Co.
Since joining Turner Construction in 2003, Noah Boro has championed the early adoption of construction technology. In 2006, his successful coordination of building information modeling for building systems on the $112-million Miller Children's Hospital in Long Beach helped establish BIM protocols for the company throughout the U.S. Boro's strong desire to be out in the field led him to switch career paths to become a site superintendent. Currently, he applies lean-construction methodology, location-based scheduling and pull planning via Flowline software to shorten schedules and help deliver complex health care projects early.
The son of a schoolteacher, Boro regularly volunteers his time to tutor students through groups such as the ACE Mentor Program and Big Brothers Big Sisters. In 2013, the Los Angeles affiliate of ACE awarded Boro the national program's first mentor-of-the-year award. He is entering his second year as an ACE board member.
