As EnTrust construction advisory partner and President of TLC Construction Management Services, Tom manages the efficient and cost effective planning, estimating and buildout of tenant improvements. He has completed millions of square feet of office, industrial, retail, medical and special use projects aggregating over $200,000,000 in value throughout Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, Texas, Georgia, California and Florida.
Tom’s project management focus includes drafting specifications, working with architects and engineers to prepare permit documents, communicating with local municipalities to secure permits, managing the bidding process, value engineering, contractor selection, closely orchestrating scheduling, and coordination with IT, telephone, furniture and other vendors to ensure tenants obtain the optimum result for their tenant improvement dollars, handling the draw request and billing process and meeting project deadlines. For turnkey buildouts, Tom focuses on documenting a detailed landlord work-letter as an exhibit to the lease, specifying everything the tenant can expect the landlord to provide (down to the number of outlets and light switches) in the buildout of its space.
Over his career, Tom has over 40+ years of experience in the construction industry. Tom stands out as a committed advocate for our clients throughout the entire construction process and handles all client/contractor relations.
Reflecting a long-term passion for youth sports, at the request of Queen of Angels in Chicago, Tom started a league and coached 5th and 6th grade football. That league is still ongoing today, 42 years later.
Tom also coached baseball teams for 17-21 year olds for the Schaumburg Athletic Association that played against eleven other teams from Schaumburg, Palatine, Hoffman Estates, Roselle, Rolling Meadows, Elk Grove, and Barrington. They won four Division titles, and ultimately the World Series. Tom has devoted a decade as Baseball Commissioner for The Schaumburg Athletic Association, and four years as the Head Commissioner of Baseball.
