Thomas P. Fitzgerald | Principal
Mr. Fitzgerald’s broad range of experience over the past 15 years include commercial, industrial, government, and residential clients in both the private and public sectors. This experience provides the solid foundation for offering logical problem solving, innovative design solutions and sensibly detailed construction documents.
Mr. Fitzgerald’s commitment to his client’s earned him recognition for his part in achieving the design-building goals for Nextel Communications during their major infrastructure expansion in the mid 90’s. Mr. Fitzgerald’s role as project manager for the re-structuring and consolidation of Cox Communications New England market included design & space planning for extensive renovations to a 40,000 S.F., 24 hour call center in Rhode Island, which maintained continuous operations during construction.
Tom’s hands on experience in the construction industry is a valuable asset to his residential clients. Having worked as a carpenter, Tom understands the mechanics of “how things work together”, which when incorporated into the design process, provide a better understanding of what is constructible and what affect that may have on the budget. The ultimate experience for any architect is the opportunity to design their own home. Tom multiplied this experience not only by designing a home for him and his wife, but also by constructing much of the home himself. The experience enabled Tom to truly understand the challenges and excitement his residential clients encounter during a design and construction project.
