Welcome!

ARE YOU LOOKING for a mechanical project manager to handle your next project? Do you want someone that you can feel comfortable with? Someone that will take care of what needs to be taken care of to complete the project efficiently while building great relationships for future work? Someone that is a team player, motivated and someone that understands the even the small projects need as much or more attention as the larger ones.

My name is Zack Lancaster. I’m a mechanical project manager and consultant (mechanical, plumbing, controls, test & balance etc.) When I’m not managing projects, I teach other Mechanical Project Managers, Assistant Project Managers & Superintendents how to get & stay organized. I believe that an organized team is a less stressed, more efficient team that doesn’t allow anything fall through the cracks.

I’ll get right to the point…

  • I’ve been a mechanical project manager for 8 years and have worked in construction for 15.
  • I’m experienced with all sizes of Mechanical projects up to $22,000,000.
  • I’m extremely experienced with healthcare projects and what it takes to get them done. From the issues related to working within or adjacent to an occupied environment to working with the AHCA inspectors & inspections. I’ve completed a total of 21 hospital projects. You can see those projects by clicking here.
  • My philosophy is one that focuses on organization and efficiency.
  • I graduated Cum Laude & Valedictorian in Construction Engineering from Florida International University.

My story

I’m from Bentonia, Mississippi, born in Jackson and raised on a farm. Growing up, I spent most of my summers working the land, helping my grandfather bail hay & getting up at 5 am to feed the cows. I learned a lot about hard work, and discovered my interest in building and creating (and taking pride in a job well done)

At 18 years old I started working with my dad during the summers in construction. As an assistant Superintendent I assisted him with concrete pours, concrete and installed big underground city drainage systems etc.

When the time came for me to continue my education after High School, I took my desire of the construction industry and moved to Miami, Florida to pursue a construction degree from Florida International University. With the work ethic, discipline and dedication instilled in me, by both my father and grandfather, I graduated Cum Laude & Valedictorian in my class.

While in school I was lucky enough to land a job, working for a great Florida Mechanical Contractor – William R. Nash Inc. I learned a lot from some really talented mechanical PM’s: David Nash, Kris Youlden & Ryan Nash. I would consider them the best in the industry. Really, they are THE VERY BEST. I was also exposed to great men that held company executive positions (Bill Nash Jr. & Russell Nash). These individuals impacted me in very positive ways; seeing them make decisions with integrity in an industry that is sometimes lacked in that area.

I continued working for William R. Nash Inc. after I graduated. I was promoted to Project Manager and given some large challenging healthcare projects. I learned and grew exponentially.

In conclusion, I’m not some PM with a big ego. I’m an individual with conviction and I care about my work and the work of the people I’m responsible for and I strive each day to ensure a job well done. I really enjoy being a Mechanical Project Manager and taking on the challenges of the each job large or small, but most importantly I feel great pride in seeing a project to its successful completion.
