Paddy Stack began his career in construction over 30 years ago as a Mason Tender, working his way up to Mason Tender Foreman. In 2004 he joined John Gallin & Son and quickly moved up to Superintendent — a position in which he works hand-in-hand with clients, guiding them through the construction process from conception through completion.
ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES
As Superintendent, Paddy coordinates the day-to-day operations of the job in the field. He ensures that the project adheres to the highest professional standards and is completed on time and on budget. He also serves as a liaison to the client and the architect, providing them with frequent progress reports.
Paddy starts each project by reviewing the construction drawings to pinpoint potential problems. He schedules the subcontractors, organizes the trades and makes sure that the correct materials are on hand. When Paddy isn’t walking the site to check on progress, he’s on the phone talking with his subcontractors and suppliers in an effort to head off potential problems before they can create delays.
Paddy understands that earning the client’s implicit trust is vital to the success of a project. To that end, he goes out of his way to maintain open lines of communication and position himself as an integral part of the client’s team — a hallmark of Gallin service.
