WOBURN, Mass. — Tocci Building Companies has added Jeffrey Nicholas as the director of healthcare. In this position, Nicholas will focus on orchestrating Tocci’s growing healthcare practice. His initial venture will be directing the program management efforts at Boston Medical Center, a $270-million construction and renovation project that will consolidate the hospital’s two South End campuses and eliminate 60 beds while maintaining the same level of services.
Nicholas’ medical construction and management background spans over 30 years at companies including Heery International, Broaddus & Associates, Cogdell Spencer Erdman and Skanska USA Building. He has experience working on a variety of healthcare projects, including leading the Granary Project Management and Design team on the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital project for 12 years. At Tocci, he will provide oversight and vision for Tocci’s healthcare practice, leading construction projects and program management efforts alike.
During his time at Broaddus & Associates, Nicholas supported Building Information Modeling professionals in focusing and branding a unique value-add service for owner facility operations and data management. As a result, the team won three new contracts. His innovative performance concepts and contracting techniques enabled the Cogdell Spencer Erdman team to win major contracts with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, John Hopkins Medicine and Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Nicholas received his Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the University of Connecticut. Currently, he resides in Weymouth, Massachusetts with his wife and two children and enjoys coaching and playing ice hockey along with skiing throughout the winter season.
