Vice President of Construction
“It’s my job to keep the vision in mind – the finished product and the quality expectations that go along with it – as we work through the minutiae of day-to-day construction. Keeping the team focused and productive is what I’m here for.”
As Vice President of Construction, Brian Thomas is the corporate liaison with contractors and subcontractors on Isakson Living communities. He will oversee the construction at Peachtree Hills Place, Isakson Living’s next community. The impressive project will be located in Peachtree Hills, a popular area within Atlanta’s legendary Buckhead neighborhood.
Demanding, high-visibility projects are familiar to Brian, who joined Isakson Living following several years with the Atlanta office of Manhattan Construction Co. There he served as senior project manager on the new World of Coca-Cola, and on a 20-story luxury apartment building. Brian is a graduate of Georgia Tech with a degree in civil engineering.
His duties at Isakson Living include oversight of all construction-related scheduling, budget and safety duties. He has been actively involved in selection of the project’s general contractor and primary subcontractors.
Brian also oversees internal design and construction teams, and is intimately involved in the design upgrade program for the community.
“The Coca-Cola project provided me with excellent experience in building a high-profile project with top-quality expectations.” He believes that communication with both internal and external parties is critical to a project’s success. Maintaining the focus on shared objectives is his primary goal. This involves maintaining open channels of communication with Isakson Living decision-makers and ensuring that every member of the field team is on board.
Brian has received numerous awards for his work, including from the U.S. Green Building Council. He and his wife Marie are the parents of two young children.
