Jeremiah Watts


As Co-Founder & Principal of D|Watts Construction, Jeremiah is responsible for providing project and executive oversight while managing day to day operations, guiding projects from discovery and design through development, implementation and close out.  Jeremiah began his career with HITT Contracting in 2003. After spending a year in the field, Jeremiah transitioned into the office as an assistant project manager where he quickly was promoted to Project manager in 2005 and Senior Project Manager in 2010. While at HITT Jeremiah lead the largest team in HITT’s interior division from 2010 – 2015 managing on average over $30 million in volume a year. 

Jeremiah’s award winning portfolio includes leading national clients such as AOL, BAE, Deloitte, Google, & Hilton and has proudly established an 85% repeat and negotiated client base.

Additionally on a corporate level, two of his most important formal roles involve acting as an innovation leader and advocating for in-house continuing education – which Jeremiah sees as key to both retaining staff and improving client service. While at HITT, Jeremiah developed and served as an instructor for their “Time Management” Class and also created a client focused presentation on Construction Budgeting and Scheduling best practices that he shares regularly. Jeremiah now heads up the D Watts Institute where we provide continuing in house education for our employees and clients (at no charge).
