Ohio: Meet Tom Marchesano, Director of Construction For $187 Million Dayton Metro Library Building Project
From the Dayton Daily News:
Dayton Metro Library interviewed six candidates before hiring Tom Marchesano of Michigan as director of construction for its $187 million building project. Other public libraries that worked with Marchesano described him as a man with integrity, a team player, someone who gets projects done on time and on budget.
Marchesano has overseen the design and construction of libraries, schools, museums, senior and recreation centers and other projects. As director for library construction for Dayton Metro, he will manage and coordinate the design and construction of new and temporary library facilities.
He has been an owner representative on four greater Detroit-area libraries. Two are on hold due to the economy and two have been completed. The scope of the Dayton project is the largest library Marchesano has taken on.
“That makes Dayton a challenge,” Marchesano said. “I’m making Dayton my home for the next four to five years. I’m looking forward to immersing myself in this building project and getting to know Dayton’s history and its residents.”
