Since joining TCT at the firm’s inception in 2007, Adel Hanna has played a critical role in TCT’s growth from a small, four-person team to a 30-person company with three regional offices. As a cost estimator with more than three decades of experience, Adel has estimated an array of projects with many municipal, state and federal agencies from the early concept phase to bid documents. In his role as a Principal and Senior Cost Manager, his responsibilities have included leading the firm’s New York City office, managing the estimating team’s workload, and maintaining proactive client communication.
Prior to becoming a cost estimator, Adel spent the early years of his career working with architects, general contractors and owner’s representatives in design offices and on construction sites. This diverse experience provides Adel with a unique perspective on each project and a thorough understanding of the impact estimates can have, particularly when projects are in their infancy. He also recognizes that project owners and architects rely on his expertise to inform their decisions, and he leverages his varied experience to proactively communicate with owners and clients to develop a greater understanding of the design team’s intentions, and is then able to add immeasurable value when developing project budgets.
