“I worked with Tom on a variety of projects over four years at Champlain College and found him to be one of the best project manager/advisor in the business. The assets Tom brings to projects are strong technical skills, an exceedingly professional composure, and an infectious warm personality. Tom also understands that Project Management requires not only about technical skills but also people skills - great projects are made by people. I was so confident in Tom's abilities that I recommended him to run a major institutional project when I left Champlain - a job he did with tremendous success. If you're looking for a consummate professional to deliver an exemplary project Tom is the one to hire.”

"Tom Peterson is someone you want on your team watching every detail of your construction project. Peterson Consulting is trustworthy and works above and beyond what is expected.”
Senior Project Manager, Champlain College
“In 2011, Champlain College hired Tom to provide Owner's Representation services for a residential dormitory project under construction at its campus in Burlington, Vermont. The Project, which is a steel-fame, brick veneered, multi-level structure containing 95 residential rooms and other programming elements, was completed this summer.
Since being hired shortly after the start of construction last summer, Tom quickly became the direct link between senior and planning management staff at the College and the Project team (design and construction professionals hired by the College). In this capacity, Tom was directly involved in all aspects of the construction process, including monitoring progress, attending job meetings, reviewing design documents and contract administration.
Tom possesses a firm grasp of the technical details associated with the Project as well as scheduling and sequencing skills required to complete the work, quickly and efficiently. Just as important, Tom has impressed me with his communication skills and personality. Regardless of the nature of the project-related interaction (with a subcontractor, vendor, public official or Owner), my observation is that Tom is direct, thoughtful, positive and collegial.
The College will be utilizing Tom's skill set for the next two dormitories to be constructed, and I highly recommend Tom for challenging construction projects requiring a diligent and knowledgeable construction professional on the ground.”
