Tom Furtado joined Schochet Companies as construction manager in 1997 and was promoted in 2005 to Director of Facilities. As construction manager Tom was responsible for overseeing over $60 million in new construction and rehabilitation of acquired properties. Projects included the construction of the South End Health Center and the renovations of Symphony Plaza East and West, the Stearns Building, Seabury Heights, King James Apartments, and Pine Crest Apartments. Leading moderate rehabilitation efforts in the very heavily regulated tax credit arena, Tom successfully delivered, on time and on budget, projects of significant scope and scale that were carried out without any relocation of existing residential tenants. As Director of Facilities, Tom oversees all maintenance, construction, and facilities management projects and programs across the portfolio.
Tom currently holds a Massachusetts Construction Supervisor’s license, is an EPA Certified Renovator, and has earned a class 1 BOC certification after extensive training in today’s environmental and building operation systems.
