Tom Ross brings extensive project management experience to ETC’s construction projects. He has worked in construction since he was 15, with a specialization in plumbing. After working several years on the East Coast doing water main, underground utility, and HVAC work for large custom homes, Tom moved to California in 1998 where he performed plumbing for residential communities, averaging 35 homes per tract. In 2000 Tom moved to San Diego and started working in the healthcare environment specializing in medical gas, steam, and plumbing systems. After five years of doing this work, Tom was hired by Scripps Health Care to run their plumbing department and coordinate construction inside the hospital where Tom expanded his knowledge of hospital systems to include fire systems, pneumatic tube systems, building management controls, hydronic heating and cooling, and Joint Commission requirements. In 2006, Tom started his own plumbing company focusing on design/build of medical gas systems for surgery centers and hospitals all over California, and in 2008 merged his plumbing license with ETC and came on board to manage ETC’s construction projects as well as oversee all plumbing work.
