He is a registered architect and interior designer with experience in the design of retail, commercial, office, hospitality, healthcare, multi-family, student and senior housing projects through his many years working for the likes of KKE, Ryan Companies, and Hartford Group. Tom’s greatest strength may be his ability to blend architectural and engineering design services into a collaborative team with the owner and contractor in the design/build delivery system.
