ST. LOUIS (Dec. 12, 2017) – Tarlton Corp., a St. Louis-based general contracting and construction management firm, promoted Sondra Rotty, LEED AP BD+C, to project director.
Previously serving as senior project manager, Rotty joined Tarlton as a project engineer in 2005. She has specialized in large, complex projects completed on fast-track schedules and is a member of Tarlton’s team that serves higher education clients.
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.
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 is also managing the Tarlton team on the renovation of Stephen and Peter Sachs Museum at Missouri Botanical Garden.
“Sondra demonstrates what strong project management is about, contributing immeasurably to the success of numerous organizations through her knowledge and experience,” said Tarlton President Tracy Hart. “She’s been instrumental to our growth and success, helping expand our services, expertise, commitments and reach to support clients through high-quality, high-value construction.”
Rotty holds a Master of Science degree in engineering management and a Bachelor of Science degree in architectural engineering from Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla. She became a LEED Accredited Professional in 2008 and this year earned the LEED AP BD+C designation, recognizing her expertise in the sustainable design and construction of institutional and commercial buildings.
A past winner of the St. Louis Business Journal’s “30 Under 30” award, Rotty is a member of the Engineers’ Club of St. Louis and the Society of Women Engineers. She serves on the Girl Scouts Focus Area STEM Committee for the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri, an organization for which she also volunteers, and she previously volunteered with Girls Inc. of St. Louis.
