Tesco Controls Joins Water Design-Build Council

TESCO is first system integrator invited to join the Water Design-Build Council

The Water Design-Build Council (WDBC), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to collaborative delivery methods for water infrastructure projects, has invited Tesco Controls, Inc., (TESCO) to join its organization. This marks the first time the WDBC has invited a system integrator to join the Council.

Representing TESCO as an allied member on the WDBC Board of Directors is Brian Adams, P.E., Director of Design-Build Projects. Prior to joining TESCO, Adams was a civil and mechanical contractor. He then began practicing as a P.E. in various roles at national and global consulting firms focused on water and wastewater projects. Most recently, Adams was a key team member of the water design-build sales group for a multinational firm that designs and constructs water and wastewater treatment plants.

TESCO’s alternate board member, Shain Thomas, CEO commented, “Our Company is honored to help further the work of WDBC, and to support its educational initiatives and industry advocacy.” Under Thomas’ leadership and strategic direction, TESCO, a 45-year-old employee-owned company, has seen substantial growth over the past five years, largely influenced by its involvement in significant water design-build projects. Thomas continued, “We believe strongly in the design-build approach as a means of delivering optimal outcomes for the client.”
