Evender (Even) Spradlin has more than 25 years of construction experience and has been senior vice president and general manager of the Jacksonville Division since 2012. In this role, he carries overall responsibility for the strategic planning, business development, construction operations, and client relationships essential to the growth of the Jacksonville Division. 

Additionally, Even has led the company’s Florida Healthcare Division since 2014. He oversees the procurement, preconstruction, and construction of all hospital and healthcare projects throughout Florida, with an emphasis in the Northeast, Central, and Tampa Bay regions.

Even began his career at Batson-Cook in 1996 as an office engineer. As he advanced, he soon determined that hospital and healthcare construction would be his specialty. In 2012, he transitioned from project executive to general manager of the Jacksonville Division during construction of the company’s then-largest healthcare project, the $200-million Weaver Tower at Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville. 

Under Even’s leadership, Batson-Cook’s position in Florida’s hospital and healthcare construction sector has grown impressively. He has a personal portfolio of nearly $548 million in this market sector alone.
