TAMPA, FL — Barton Malow Builders appoints Larry Arndt as Senior Director to lead the firm’s growing Tampa office, which recently relocated to a new space in the Westshore District. A 30-year veteran of the design and construction industry, Arndt also serves as Barton Malow’s National Healthcare Leader with cross-market expertise in education, sports, and diverse commercial projects.

Previously Senior Director of Barton Malow’s Chicago office, Arndt is now responsible for leading all operations in the Tampa Bay region.

“Well respected by peers for his expertise and positive impact in the industry, Larry’s background in architecture and vast construction knowledge create an unparalleled experience for our clients,” said Director of Orlando Operations Randy Zylstra. “He also brings to the market 30 years of experience partnering with community members to discover new technologies, efficiencies, and speed-to-market opportunities and will continue to support our project teams with best practices, quality programs, and an awareness of evolving trends in the marketplace.”
