Why we LOVE Timber Framing by our Co-Founder, Tim Crowley – LEED AP
I believe that my love for timber framing started with my love for the outdoors. When I was a young boy and I would disappear into the woods to go exploring for hours at a time. I would climb high into tree tops and enjoy the incredible views of the canopy branches. My construction experience started in this same era with the building of teepees and forts and tree houses deep in the woods.
I worked through college as a handyman as well as working on a commercial construction site. This is where my appreciation of a hard day’s work came from. At the end of the work day I remember experiencing a great sense of accomplishment when looking at what had been achieved that day. This gave me a desire to design buildings and be involved with seeing that what was planned on the drawing board would actually be built with quality and care.
My first construction manager job came in 1999 when I was the onsite foreman for a $2 million church addition project. I had already served as the project manager for the architectural firm that had designed the building, and then the church hired me directly to make the plans that I had helped create become a reality. For this project I coordinated all sub-contractors, headed up an onsite work force and helped to coordinate volunteer workday projects.
I went on to work for the 13 years following this project for a Wheeling, WV architectural firm as well as a major east coast developer. In this time I held positions such as Project Manager, Construction Administrator, and Head of Commercial Design, and Director of Design and Construction.
In 2009 I acquired my LEED AP certification, which designates the status of a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design - Accredited Professional. This certification affirms my knowledge of green design and construction practices and their implementation. I have served as the LEED Construction Coordinator for over $30,634,722 of LEED construction projects, helping to successfully ensure that the projects’ LEED / green goals are met. I also served as the Green Project Coordinator on the exciting Mother Earth News / Seven Spring Green Showcase Home timber frame project.
In 2012 I became the Co-Founder / Principal of Breisch & Crowley, LLC / www.BCdesignbuild.com | BCdesignbuild is a progressive Design/Build firm based in St. Clairsville, OH. We perform a variety of work including: residential additions and renovations, custom residential designs, site assessments for residential and commercial developments, as well as commercial projects including: adaptive reuse, religious, healthcare, restaurant, educational, office, banking, retail, museum, manufacturing, distribution, industrial, & civic projects.
