Tom Garske joins Borror Construction Company

Columbus, OH (Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018)—Borror is excited to announce it is expanding its construction division, Borror Construction Company. Borror has named Tom Garske as President of Borror Construction Company, with Matt Devereaux and Jeff Rankey as Senior Vice Presidents for Borror Construction.

Garske and Devereaux, both formerly with The Whiting Turner Contracting Company, bring years of commercial construction experience to Borror.  In addition, they recognized an underserved market in the booming Columbus construction scene—and, with Borror, have launched an owner’s representative business under the Borror umbrella.

“I’m excited about the potential for growth,” Garske says. “With the resources and support of Borror, there is seemingly unlimited opportunity in a market that is just exploding right now—and all indications are that it will continue to do so.”

With this new division, the Borror Owner’s Representation (BOR) team works to proactively manage commercial building projects from beginning to end—on behalf of owners, and in the best interest of all involved parties. The owner’s rep can assist in all stages of a construction project, from programming, to schematics, design, development, and construction documents.

The service is beneficial for those who may not have the internal resources or expertise to oversee a construction project, or out-of-town companies with Columbus construction projects. BOR offers both full-service owner’s representation as well as a la carte services.

Garske, Devereaux, and Rankey bring over 30 years of experience in a wide variety of construction sectors, including healthcare, higher education, mixed use, corporate office, institutional and manufacturing.
