About Michael L. Condon (1947-2002)

Michael “Mike” Lawrence Condon began his career in the deep foundations industry with Kiewit Construction at the age of 23, after serving in the U.S. Air Force from 1967-1971. Very ambitious and driven to succeed, Condon began as a pile driving superintendent and was quickly promoted. An effective leader, he successfully grew a division of Kiewit and, between 1979 and 1984, was responsible for building the structural foundations that support many of San Francisco’s tallest buildings.

In 1984, Mike teamed up with James Johnson to transform what was then Kulchin and Associates, a small shoring company, into a major West Coast foundation and drilling company now known as Condon-Johnson & Associates. As a driving force in the construction industry, Condon completed some of the most innovative shoring and foundation projects in the country.

Condon brought his energy and passion to everything he did in life, making him a dynamic force in the construction industry. He died unexpectedly in 2002 at the age of 54.
