Darren Thibert – September 9, 2021
Darren Thibert, ASA’s Outstanding General Contractor Superintendent (2020)
“Darren always makes sure that the best scenario possible is at play so everyone involved can do their part safely and without delay.”
The stars were certainly shining last night in Mount Prospect at Victoria in the Park for the Association of Subcontractors and Affiliates (ASA) Chicago’s 26th Annual Awards Evening and GC Council Recognition.
ASA Chicago is a nonprofit association serving subcontractors with networking opportunities, education, and advocacy within the construction industry.
Last night, the ASA Chicago recognized several individuals and projects for the impact and contributions made from 2020 to 2021, including our very own Darren Thibert, Project Superintendent.
About Darren Thibert
Darren Thibert has been a carpenter since graduating high school 36 years ago and a superintendent for 17 years. Darren is grateful for all those who helped lift and guide him and honors those people he respects by doing for others what so many have done for him.
If anyone is struggling on a job site, Darren will always step up and provide help—no matter what the task is at hand. Darren knows that it takes everyone to get a job done—and not simply done, but done to the owner’s expectations—the first time, on time, and on budget. Darren always makes sure that the best scenario possible is at play so everyone involved can do their part safely and without delay.
Darren is a forward-thinking problem solver. When he learns of issues, he doesn’t simply go to the architects and engineers looking for answers. Darren’s first move when encountering issues is to come up with a viable solution and then will look to others for their insight. If everyone is putting forth their best effort then workers, subcontractors, and owners stay happy and projects move forward smoothly on schedule.
In speaking with Darren, you will quickly realize that his passion is his work. But, when Darren is not working or helping others in his community by offering his carpentry skills he enjoys outdoor activities, riding his motorcycle with his wife Sue, and barbequing with friends and family at home (the home he very proudly built). Darren is also very proud of his two daughters who are now working toward building their careers—one in Illinois and one in Colorado.
The advertisement featured (see image gallery) in the evening’s program displays a few of Darren’s recent projects, including the recently completed May Whitney Elementary School (District 95, Lake Zurich, IL).
