With more than 30 years in construction and 20 years at XL, Boneso has focused on the construction of biotech facilities and large data centers and has been integral to the development of the company’s life sciences team.

Other promotions at the firm included 18-year company vet Kevin Ng, who assumed the role of vice president of science and technology and healthcare. Former project executive Tate Chandler, who has a portfolio of over 3 million square feet of life science projects throughout Northern California, succeeded Ng as director of science and technology.
