NYCSCA Construction Mentor Program Lead, AECOM Metro New York
A Mechanical Engineer with more than 25 years of experience in the construction industry, Amna oversees the New York City School Construction Authority (NYCSCA) Construction Management Mentor Program, which is designed to help small contractors develop the skills necessary to take on larger projects. She is the first female program manager to lead a CM firm in the NYCSCA Mentor Program since its inception almost 25 years ago. Amna’s 25-person team mentors 88 general contractors and their sub-contractors and manages 300 projects in all different phases (scope, design, construction, and closeout) with a value of more than $100 million. Projects range from auditorium renovations, gym upgrades, room conversions, playgrounds, ADA compliance, electrical upgrades, and fire alarms. The CM that she leads also mentors the emerging MWLBE contractors to make sure they improve their technical, administrative, and business development skills and acquire the “know how” to be able to pursue, capture, and execute larger, more complex projects. Prior to managing the NYCSCA Mentor Program, Amna served as program manager for high-rise buildings, bridges, and school construction in New Jersey valued at $72 million. She was honored by the Women Builders Council in 2018 as an Outstanding Woman in Construction.
