ADVANCE – Davie Construction Co., a general contractor, and facilities maintenance management firm, has recruited Frank Chapman as executive vice president of Medical Construction Services.

“While our 25-year history includes an extensive portfolio of new construction and renovation of all types of medical facilities, Frank’s expertise is specifically focused on the unique needs of oral surgery, dental and veterinary practices and providing them a turnkey solution to their construction needs,” said President and CEO, Carl V. Carney.

Chapman brings 30 years of industry experience to his new leadership position at Davie, holding contractor licenses in commercial and residential construction since 1991.

Before joining Davie, he worked with TerWisscha Construction, based in Willmar, Minn., where he managed the full construction process for dozens of medical and veterinary clients across the nation. Project scope ranged from helping secure financing to guiding location selection, directing all design and building operations and coordinating schedules with vendors.

Recently completed projects include Trinity Valley Oral Surgery in Forney, Texas and Bentley Animal Hospital in Fenton, Mo.

Chapman is also a U.S. Air Force veteran, having served in the Gulf War from 1987-91.

“My objective is to provide these doctors with a comprehensive construction management service based upon an understanding of the best practices of their specialties,” Chapman said. “We partner with them to find the most beneficial financing options, which in the case of younger doctors may include their postgraduate loans. We help them identify the optimal location based upon marketing and competitive analyses, and guide their selection of an architect and interior designer to create an environment that integrates maximum comfort and accessibility with the most advanced medical technology. This allows them to focus on their practice and taking the very best care of their patients.”
