Thomas Calcaterra

(Iselin, NJ – April 18, 2018) – We’re pleased to announce the hiring of Thomas Calcaterra as a senior project manager at our New Jersey PREMIER Design + Build Group, LLC office. He believes that a 24/7 commitment to clients is key to helping their visions come true. As a project lead, he ensures that our east coast teams meet scheduled objectives.

It was an instant match with PREMIER. From day one, I felt that I could do my best work with them and promote progress at every milestone.

Calcaterra will lead all aspects of the construction process, including bidding, budgeting and scheduling. He will lead negotiation and issuance of contracts and change orders, as well as maintaining RFI and submittal tracking, client and internal meeting documentation, billing, financial management and project closeout. Finally, Calcaterra will focus on design coordination, permitting and owner interaction.

Prior to PREMIER, he served as a project manager at a major construction company in New Jersey. He interfaced with construction experts and clients and was responsible for the overall safety, direction, completion and financial outcome of projects. His experience also includes serving as a project manager and superintendent in charge of scheduling projects, supervising teams, and coordinating efforts between subcontractors, architects, engineers and more. He completed projects for Fortune 500 companies and facilitated project phasing, logistics and cost management. Throughout his career, he has prided himself in ensuring that his teams exceeded client expectations.

Tom is a born leader and a natural collaborator, he is a tireless worker and when he has a client goal in sight, he is sure to reach it.
