New Long Beach Construction Chief

By Karen Robes Meeks

Darrin Lambrigger is the new director of construction management at the Port of Long Beach.

Lambrigger, whose appointment officially began earlier this month, had been acting in the role that manages the building of the port’s projects, including major ones such as the $1.5 billion Middle Harbor Redevelopment project, since June.

Lambrigger takes over for Suzanne Plezia, who was elevated last summer to senior director/chief harbor engineer.

Before joining the port in 2011, Lambrigger had been a port consultant on the Pier G Administration and Operations Buildings projects. He started at the port as deputy chief harbor engineer before being promoted to assistant director of construction management in 2015. Lambrigger attended Loyola Marymount University, where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering and a master's degree in civil engineering.
