Sondra Rotty Named to ’40 Under 40′ Class

ST. LOUIS (Jan. 9, 2018) – Sondra Rotty, LEED AP BD+C of Tarlton Corp., a St. Louis-based general contracting and construction management firm, has been named to the St. Louis Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 Class of 2018.

The 40 Under 40 Award is one of the St. Louis Business Journal’s most prominent annual awards. Rotty joins an elite group of the area’s young business leaders who are selected for outstanding contributions to their companies and local business community. According to the St. Louis Business Journal, more than 500 nominations were received for the 2018 award. Rotty also is a past recipient of the St. Louis Business Journal’s 30 Under 30 Award.

Recently promoted to project director, Rotty is leading the Tarlton team that will construct a new Center for Nursing and Health Sciences on the Forest Park campus of St. Louis Community College. Construction on the LEED-registered project will begin in 2018. She also is managing the Tarlton team on the renovation of Stephen and Peter Sachs Museum at Missouri Botanical Garden.

Rotty has managed or worked on many notable LEED-certified Tarlton projects, including the award-winning Olin Business School expansion (Knight and Bauer Halls) and the Bryan Hall Renovation, both at Washington University in St. Louis. She also served on the Tarlton-Pepper-KAI joint venture team for the expansion of the Saint Louis Art Museum. For the U.S. General Services Administration, she managed Tarlton’s renovation of the Charles F. Prevedel Federal Building in Overland, Mo., and was a member of the teams that constructed the 500,000-square-foot National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis and built out the Rush Hudson Limbaugh Sr. U.S. Courthouse in Cape Girardeau, Mo.

“We’re thrilled that Sondra was selected to the 40 Under 40 class of 2018,” said Tarlton President Tracy Hart. “She consistently brings to every project the knowledge, experience and strong management skills that are instrumental to our growth and success. On top of that, she’s always one of the first to join the team for our charitable and community activities. Sondra is an outstanding mentor and role model, and a lot of fun to work with.”
