Paul Wallerus, CCA
Certified Construction Auditor Member, National Association of Construction Auditors (NACA)
Paul started C&M Construction Consultants, Inc. in November 2003 after identifying the need for construction auditing and other financial related services on commercial construction projects in Minnesota.
Paul’s experience over the past 15 years has centered on accounting, auditing, and project management, with the last 12 years focused primarily on construction and real estate projects. Before starting the company, Paul was the project controller for the Wells Fargo Home Mortgage campus in Minneapolis which was over a $200M project with many complex issues and areas to track. As project controller at Wells Fargo, he created a tracking and reporting system that is now being used on all Wells Fargo Home Mortgage construction projects.
C&M’s first project designed the construction auditing procedures for the University of Minnesota. As a result of implementing his procedures and utilizing his skills as a financial auditor, the University realized over $2.59M in audit savings and identified another $2.68M in potential savings due to risk reduction and changes in contract language for future projects.
With a degree in Construction Engineering from Iowa State University, Jeff has either managed or been a team member on over 75 projects from $100K to $200M with a wide variety of project types, contract delivery methods, and project owners. His extensive background includes preconstruction services, estimating, scheduling, project controls, procurement, contract negotiations, contract administration, project cost control, subcontractor assessment and financial control, quality control, and risk recognition and mitigation.
As a senior project manager, he directed and coordinated project activities from inception through closeout and maintained project budgets, quality, and schedules. He is detailed, analytical, and organized in identifying, tracking, and resolving issues. He actively listens and effectively communicates information.
