Davie Construction Taps Veteran Medical Construction Specialist to Head New Division
Advance, NC – Davie Construction Co., a general contractor, and facilities maintenance management firm, has recruited Frank Chapman as Executive Vice President of Medical Construction Services. “While our 25-year history includes an extensive portfolio of new construction and renovation of all types of medical facilities, we now offer a specific focus on the construction needs of oral surgeons for their offices, surgical centers, and urgent care facilities, providing a turnkey solution for these projects,” said President and CEO, Carl V. Carney.
Chapman brings 30 years of industry experience to his new leadership position at Davie Construction Co., holding contractor licenses in both commercial and residential construction since 1991. Before joining Davie Construction Co., he worked with TerWisscha Construction, Inc. based in Willmar, MN where he managed the full construction process for dozens of medical clients located across the nation. Project scope ranged from helping secure financing to guiding location selection, directing all design and building operations and coordinating schedules with vendors. Recently completed projects include Trinity Valley Oral Surgery in Forney, TX and East Columbus Oral Surgery Center in Columbus, OH. Chapman is also a United States Air Force veteran, having served in the Gulf War from 1987-91.
“My objective is to provide these doctors with a comprehensive construction management service based upon an understanding of the best practices of their specialties. We partner with them to find the most beneficial financing options, which in the case of younger doctors may include their postgraduate loans. We help them identify the optimal location based upon marketing and competitive analyses, and guide their selection of an architect and interior designer to create an environment that integrates maximum comfort and accessibility with the most advanced medical technology,” said Chapman. “This allows them to focus on their practice and taking the very best care of their patients.”
