After more than a decade with ICI, Thomas Beata has been named the company’s General Field Superintendent. In his new role, Tom is involved in every ICI project in various stages of construction; from conceptual planning through project closeout and warranty. The newly created role signifies an increased depth for the organization because Tom will serve as a resource for our team internally as well as subcontractors and vendors. Ultimately, his industry expertise, communication skills and implementation of improved processes benefit ICI’s clients by further mitigating the inherent pitfalls of construction.
Specifically, Tom will visit every active job site incrementally throughout the duration of construction (typically every two weeks). At those job site visits, he will review project scheduling with the on-site superintendent to discuss and resolve any foreseeable coordination or resource issues.
In the conceptual planning stages of a project, Tom will work with the cost estimator, project manager and proposed on-site superintendent as needed to develop logistics and phasing plans. Once construction is complete, Tom will shift focus toward working with the project team for efficient close-out.
Tom has been a solid resource in the field for beginner-level employees for years. In his new role, he is taking a more formalized approach to mentoring ICI’s team members; imparting the importance of strong communication skills and adherence to company processes.
