Senior Vice President of Construction
Peter Copriviza joined Devcon in 1990 as a Project Manager after Bret Sisney introduced him to Gary Filizetti.
“I wasn’t looking for a job, but I was curious about Devcon because their reputation in the industry was impeccable,” Copriviza remembered. “I discovered that Gary’s passion for building and customer service was contagious! He hired me on the spot. Since then I have gone to work every day proud of who we are and what we do.”
For Devcon, Copriviza has managed construction projects in retail, high-density housing, hospitality, manufacturing, child care, food service and more. In addition to developing office buildings and corporate campuses, Copriviza has managed the construction of sports facilities, data centers, conference centers and engineering labs. He earned the title of Vice President of Construction in 2013 and was promoted to Senior Vice President in 2018.
“I studied engineering because I have always enjoyed figuring out how things worked,” Copriviza said, “I thought I would be a design engineer until I decided to remodel my house and realized the satisfaction you get from transforming an idea to a reality.”
Copriviza has a bachelor of science degree in Mechanical Engineering and an MBA, both from Santa Clara University. His strong technical background and business sense provided the foundation for his success in managing the preconstruction and construction processes.
Copriviza embraces new technology in construction, and has been responsible for Lean and LEED projects for Devcon. He is a certified Engineer in Training, and has earned certification in LEED, Concepts and Strategies.
