Tarlton Corp., a leading St. Louis-based general contracting and construction management firm, promoted Lindsey Widmer, LEED AP, to senior preconstruction manager.
From her time as a project engineer intern, Widmer has advanced through the organization in preconstruction and operations roles for various projects. Most of her time has been spent in preconstruction and estimating, where she has provided critical project pre-planning for clients including Cortex Innovation Community, St. Louis Community College, The Muny, Washington University in St. Louis and Wexford Science & Technology.
“We are fortunate to have Lindsey serving in such an important role for our customers,” said Jason Bretz, Tarlton senior vice president, who oversees Tarlton’s work acquisition efforts. “Our clients benefit from her attention to detail and her complete understanding of complex projects from preconstruction through completion. Creatively achieving our customers’ goals is always Lindsey’s main focus.”
Widmer’s first project with Tarlton was the construction of Seigle Hall at Washington University in St. Louis, where she was mentored by Sondra Rotty, then a project manager and today a Tarlton senior vice president. Widmer has provided preconstruction and estimating for multiple laboratory renovations in the St. Louis region and for the Pulitzer Arts Foundation’s lower-level gallery expansion, which earned a Keystone Award for excellence in construction from the Associated General Contractors of Missouri. She managed a half dozen Nordstrom Rack buildouts in Missouri, Kansas, Michigan and Oklahoma.
She holds the LEED Accredited Professional designation and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from Missouri University of Science and Technology.
