Tom started Prime Engineering in 1990 because he saw an opportunity to focus on serving customers that used the facilities he designed—hence the name “Prime Engineering.” He’d worked for successful firms in the past and learned the importance of incorporating users’ operational considerations into the design of new or renovated facilities. But he yearned for a chance to start his own firm. So he did.
That’s how Tom addresses his business and his life. He sees a problem or an opportunity. Considers various ways to address it. Determines which approach makes the most sense. And then he does it.
Problem solved; opportunity realized.
Born and raised in Connecticut, Tom brings four decades of engineering, design, and construction experience to his craft and has extensive capital planning and project implementation experience across a wide variety of project types around the world. His international experience with both engineering-procurement-construct (EPC) and design-bid-build (DBB) projects provides clients with a unique project implementation perspective. Based in our Atlanta corporate headquarters, he is a registered engineer in 28 states and Puerto Rico, and he’s provided engineering consulting and construction services for projects in Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, the US Virgin Islands, the British Virgin Islands, the Dutch Antilles, and Indonesia.
Tom is highly regarded for his expertise in power generation and distribution; biofuels refining storage and distribution; water and wastewater treatment; airports and airport facilities; petroleum/chemical process, bulk storage, and transportation; and manufacturing and product distribution facilities.
Among his many accomplishments, Tom was voted the Georgia Engineering Alliance’s Engineer of the Year in 2012.
He’s always looking for the next engineering challenge; the next talented person to join the Prime family; the next opportunity to be both a technical expert and a business partner. And to do that, the conversation always starts with, “What’s your prime goal?”
But he’s not all work. Tom and his wife enjoy time together traveling and pursing their own hobbies. She keeps bees and tends to their bountiful garden. He enjoys time in his workshop producing exquisite woodworking products for friends and family.
Their next challenge is building a second home on Florida’s Atlantic coast to enjoy the surf and sand on Florida’s less developed slice of paradise.
Rest assured: It will have some impressive wooden furniture.
