Chicago-based general contractor Summit Design + Build, LLC says it has recently opened an office in Tampa. Scott Hutchison will be the regional director.
“In this role, Hutchison will be responsible for managing and growing the Florida outpost, overseeing all construction activity, including project scope, budget and schedule development,” the contractor said in a statement. “He will also be involved in the day-to-day administration of business operations and have his hands on all estimating and business development efforts.”
“Opening Summit Design + Build Southeast is something I’ve wanted to do for some time,” said company president Adam Miller. “I have strong ties to the area and it felt like the natural next step to expand our operations to a market like Tampa and St. Petersburg. Scott will be crucial to growing the business and team and is a great addition to Summit Design + Build. We are happy we made Tampa Bay our second home.”
Summit says Hutchison has more than 24 years of construction management experience, most recently as senior project manager with Shawmut Design and Construction, “leading numerous high-end retail and restaurant build-outs, including flagships in major markets like Miami, New York, Chicago and California.”
Nationally, the contractor has completed work in Dallas and Washington DC. The firm currently has a project under construction in Boston.
