Tyler serves as the Vice President of our Florida operations and has experience managing all types of projects ranging in size from $100,000 to $25 Million. His projects include both new, out-of-the ground projects and interior demolitions and renovations. Tyler has worked in a number of industries including healthcare, senior living, commercial, retail, and industrial.
During his tenure in the construction industry, he has managed and completed all aspects of the estimation and construction process, often beginning with design, or post-design phase, through close-out. Tyler is detailed and thorough in his work on project cost analysis and budgeting; his approach pro-actively reduces the necessity for change orders, and when necessary, is an effective problem solver during the construction phase.
Along with his operational role, he remains an active Project Manager, managing large, pivotal projects which require significant expertise and executive level oversight. He manages operational and project-related duties simultaneously.
