Patrick Sise

Managing Director, Construction


Patrick Sise joined Vermilion Development in December of 2023 as the Managing Director for Construction.  His past work experiences include the completion of nearly 2,900 residential units in the senior housing, affordable housing, condominium and market-rate rentals.
Pat began his career in the general contracting role where he spent 17 years managing complex ground-up construction projects.  He has overseen work in roles starting as an intern through project executive, with a dedication to safety and quality construction practices.  Taking pride in, and ownership of, his role as a leader, he has guided challenging projects while managing teams of contractors, project managers, consultants, and owners to achieve success for all stakeholders.

Pat’s interest in green building technology and energy efficiency lead to a 3 year turn as the Manager of Construction for the Chicago office of a national energy performance contractor.  During this time, his role included site audits, estimating, development of scopes of work for both “green” and traditional renovation of existing buildings as well as renewable energy implementation.

A passion for large-scale multifamily development led Pat back to working with development firms for a variety of multifamily project types in Chicago and other markets across the country.  On the development side of the industry, he has participated in all phases of design development, preconstruction, bid management, estimating, design team selection, contractor selection and oversight of all construction aspects through final disposition.

Pat graduated with a degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Illinois focused on transportation structures and construction management.  Thanks to the advice of his Father, who was a legal professional in the development field, he went directly into construction management and found his purpose being a part of a team and assuming leadership roles that resulted in benefitting communities with job creation, living accommodations, energy conservation and other needed built environments.

A lifelong Chicagoan, Pat, along with his dedicated wife, has raised a family and been active in various roles in the community including volunteering at his Church, coaching multiple teams for his children over the years and volunteering as an Election Judge for Cook County.
