McDonald Building Company welcomes Tom McDonald as Vice President of Operations

By Laura Clevenger - Director of Marketing

McDonald Building Company is proud to announce that Tom McDonald recently joined the firm as Vice President of Operations to expand the company’s leadership team and executive project management staff. During his 32 years of experience as Vice President and various other roles at a leading regional construction management firm, Tom led many multi-million dollar development deals for both the public and private sector throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region. Most recently, Tom played an integral role in the prominent $1.5 billion Comcast Technology Center – the first structure in Philadelphia to exceed 1,000 feet and scheduled to be complete this year.

Other notable projects under Tom’s leadership include Temple University’s Mitchell & Hillarie Morgan Hall Student Residences (Phila, PA), AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center City Campus (Atlantic City, NJ), Gloucester County Judicial Center (Woodbury, NJ) and Marriott’s Fairway Villas at Seaview (Absecon, NJ). Tom’s notable strength and considerable knowledge in subcontractor coordination, scheduling, and contract negotiations with large-scale construction jobs will serve as an invaluable contribution to McDonald Building Company’s strategic growth and development. McDonald Building Company offers full construction management services in healthcare, commercial & retail, education and mixed-use multi-family housing projects throughout Philadelphia and the surrounding metropolitan areas. Among other responsibilities, Tom will be leading the construction team at New Market West, a 5-story mixed-use and Class A Office development in West Philadelphia.

Prior to beginning his career in construction management, Tom enjoyed a career playing professional soccer for various teams throughout the US. Tom holds a LEED BD+C accreditation and is a graduate of Philadelphia College of Textiles and Sciences (now Jefferson University).

Please join McDonald Building Company in welcoming Tom to our team.
