Learning over time to build in his mind while calculating on paper, David’s specialized expertise translates to incredibly accurate estimates for Shell McElroy clients. A quiet leader, he stands out in his role as Preconstruction Manager, working in close collaboration with all of the project partners, providing value options and bringing solutions to bear for the operations team.

Entering the construction industry almost 40 years ago, David has been involved with more than $1.1 billion worth of work. He spent most of his career with large precast concrete suppliers and transportation corporations, such as Macon Prestressed Concrete (now Tindall Corporation) and Parsons Brinkerhoff, where creating budgets for technically challenging and complex projects became a regular task.
