Eliot Hansen

Senior Estimating Manager

Describe the last 10-15 years of your career in a snapshot. 


  • Senior project manager for commercial building projects, including auto dealerships, self-storage facilities, land development, and life science projects 
  • Senior estimating manager for Cannon Building


Favorite building, structure, or architectural piece, and why?

Oracle Office Building in Irvine (originally the Taco Bell Headquarters). It was the first unitized curtain-wall glass building I worked on, and it featured a cutting-edge design and shape for that time.


What do you like best about what you do at Cannon Building? 


As a senior estimating manager, I get to see all types of different project types across the Cannon portfolio. Running estimates for these projects requires learning about new construction design and materials to complete accurate pricing for each one.
