Tom Novak


The role of the field engineer is to assist the superintendent’s management of the construction process. Field engineers are assigned to only large complex projects where another set of eyes and ears is necessary. Tom joined the Henry Carlson Construction a year ago and like our many SDSU construction management graduates, has demonstrated his value as a field engineer on a daily basis.

Tom Novak
"Shortly after hiring TSP/Smithgroup we interviewed a number of firms for our Froiland Science Center new construction and remodel and hired Henry Carlson as our Construction manager at risk very shortly thereafter. We engaged them very early in the process under a preconstruction contract that began with Schematic design. They were able to provide ideas immediately along with budget guidance that allowed us to make decisions at the appropriate time and with the utmost care. They are an invaluable part of the process and really understand the planning process."
