Bruce Conant

Senior Director, Construction Management

Mr. Conant is the Deputy Operations Manager for Puerto Rico. Bruce has 23 years of construction management and joined Tidal Basin in 2018 as a project manager.  

Currently, Bruce oversees Puerto Rico’s Repair, Reconstruction, and Relocation (R3) Program. He also manages damage assessment, inspection and construction management, and closeout processes. Additionally, Bruce supports Tidal Basin’s FDEM Project Management Office engagement, where he provides his subject matter expertise to facilitate initial housing assessments and the installation of travel trailers in response to Florida’s Hurricane Ian disaster.  

Previously, in his role as senior director of HCDI, Bruce provided oversight for all field operations, including the management of construction contractors, scoping, progress inspections, and invoice review and approval processes. His successful oversight and management of field operations assisted in yielding positive results for over 108,000 families by providing temporary housing repairs after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island of Puerto Rico. Bruce assisted with the startup and implementation of the nation’s largest Sheltering and Temporary Essential Power (STEP) Program totaling approximately $1.7 billion in Puerto Rico. 

Bruce’s military background, coupled with his acute expertise in construction management, has added value across many housing projects administered by Tidal Basin.
