Tom has been in the construction industry since 1985, originally owning his own company specializing in home and office remodeling. In 2007, Tom joined ICI as a Project Superintendent. Through his success in high profile, complex projects in a variety of markets as well as demonstrated leadership and communication skills, Tom was named General Field Superintendent in 2017.
In his new role, Tom is involved in every ICI project in various stages of construction; from conceptual planning through project close-out and warranty. Ultimately, his industry expertise, communication skills and implementation of improved processes benefit ICI’s clients by further mitigating the inherent pitfalls of construction.
Specifically, Tom visits every active job site incrementally throughout the duration of construction (typically every two weeks). At those job site visits, he reviews project scheduling with the on-site superintendent to discuss and resolve any foreseeable coordination or resource issues.
In the conceptual planning stages of a project, Tom works with the cost estimator, project manager and proposed on-site superintendent as needed to develop logistics and phasing plans. Once construction is complete, Tom shifts focus towards working with the project team for efficient close-out.
Tom has been a solid resource in the field for beginner-level employees for years. In his role, he takes a more formalized approach to mentoring ICI’s team members; imparting the importance of strong communication skills and adherence to company processes.
