(Boston, MA) – BOND, a leading 108-year-old general contracting and construction management firm, announces today that Anthony Bond, a fifth generation member of the Bond family and current Vice President, Gas Transmission and Distribution Services, has been named a “Top 20 Under 40” Construction Professional by Engineering News-Record New England.
Bond is being recognized as one of the 2015 Top Young Professionals in the New England region who represent the “Best-of-the-Best” in their construction and design careers by giving back to their industry and communities.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized by ENR New England as a Top Young Professional in the field of construction,” said Anthony Bond, “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to my family’s legacy as a construction leader throughout the region.”
An independent jury judged candidates from around the region. More information about these Top Young Professionals will be included in the April 13th issue of ENR New England. The publication held the competition for each of its ten regional editions.
In his current role, Bond is instrumental in helping BOND grow and expand its gas transmission and distribution footprint throughout the Northeast. Bond has been with the firm for more than eight years, gaining hands-on construction experience in the utility, academic, and corporate markets. He has served as both Project Manager and Superintendent on various efforts and has worked with clients including Spectra Energy, National Grid, United Illuminating, Harvard University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Most recently, Bond has been instrumental in the development of both BOND’s New Haven, Connecticut and Kenilworth, New Jersey offices, establishing a firm presence in the Mid-Atlantic States. During this time, he has managed major gas projects for clients throughout the Northeast, including work at a major interconnect for Spectra Energy and Columbia Pipeline Group in Ramapo, New York; work at an active compressor station for Kinder Morgan in Troy, Pennsylvania; multiple integrity management projects for Spectra Energy throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York and New Jersey; and work at a new compressor station for Williams in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania.
Bond has also helped to expand BOND’s distribution portfolio with National Grid and Con Edison, and is actively engaged in two professional organizations, the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) and the Northeast Gas Association (NGA), where he is advancing the recognition of BOND as the “go-to” gas transmission and distribution contractor in the Northeast.
Outside of the company, Bond has been an active member in the industry by participating in such groups as the Associated General Contractors, sitting on the Connecticut Board of Directors; the CMAA’s CMIT Committee; and the NGA’s QA/QC Committee.
In addition to industry organizations, Bond is philanthropic with several charitable organizations, including Boston Children’s Hospital and the Wounded Warrior Project. Bond is also a strong supporter of several of BOND’s corporate charitable organizations, including Housing Families, which strives to end family homelessness, and the American Cancer Society.
Bond has a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Vermont, and a Master of Science degree in Construction Management from Wentworth Institute of Technology.
“We are extremely proud of Anthony for receiving this terrific honor,” said Robert Murray, BOND President. “As a tireless and dedicated member of the BOND family, Anthony’s efforts contribute strongly to the development of our company.”
Since 1907, BOND has been involved in some of the region’s most complex vertical and horizontal construction projects. With two distinct groups, operating as Construction Managers for academic and healthcare clients, and self-performing General Contractors for the power and energy industry, BOND is well-known for delivering reliable, safe, and high quality work. The Building Division has completed high profile projects such as Harvard University’s Northwest Science Labs and MIT’s famed Media Lab in Cambridge, and the AstraZeneca Hope Lodge for the American Cancer Society in Boston; while the Civil & Utility Division has successfully completed two of the largest regional underground high-voltage electrical transmission line projects in New England’s history.
