Our People
Mike Ewers, PE

Mike is Primera’s chief construction engineering expert and takes great satisfaction in the high-quality completion of a project. “I truly enjoy the ever-present teamwork that we all embrace here at Primera.  It seems that there isn’t a project or deadline that we can’t handle,” he explains.  Mike oversees Primera’s construction management efforts across all buildings and transportation projects. His expertise is the result of decades of construction engineering and inspection experience, including coordination with government agencies and other stakeholders, documentation, planning, monitoring budget and schedules, as well as management and coordination of project personnel and consultants. He has worked with a variety of municipalities and understands the coordination necessary to successfully complete construction projects on time and within budget.

Mike studied civil engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign before landing a job at the Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways, where he would spend nearly 30 years mastering his craft before joining Primera.

Outside the office, Mike is a golf enthusiast that loves to see his son perform in the band Eikthynir and his daughter excel in her college courses. As a board member for the past seven years, he also spends a good portion of his time fundraising for Blue-Cap, a not-for-profit agency serving children and adults with developmental disabilities.
