He understands how decisions made in the design process impact a developer’s ability to deliver a building product to the marketplace on time and budget.  From market analysis, to initial due diligence, programming, conceptualization, and finally to evaluation of systems and materials, Tom’s depth of knowledge can be an invaluable asset to your development team. Tom’s new consulting practice TCB3 Consultancy, LLC will focus on helping clients evaluate the decisions that set a framework for success.
