David Forbes
Director of Construction

Raised as a “military brat” David grew up with the opportunity to live in several locations around the world. His first business venture at age 11, was to take the free “Daily Bulletin” and deliver it to the base houses and charge the residents 30 cents a month for the service.

Upon high school graduation in Keene, NH David worked in the building supply business and then several years in various field positions such as laborer, carpenter, iron worker, equipment operator and surveyor to save money to go to college.  After moving to Colorado and establishing residency working as a cowboy and then construction superintendent, he attended Colorado State University and received a BS in Industrial Construction Management.

After working many years for self-perform industrial contractors in various management capacities on projects across the nation he joined Waldron in 2002 as the Director of Construction. He is responsible for all aspects of Waldron’s construction operations and success, as well as oversight of constructability reviews, cost opinion development and project scheduling in support of Waldron’s engineering group.

David enjoys skiing and snowmobiling with his family in the winter, working with his heavy machinery on his property up north in the summer and fall, and walking his dogs with his family in the forests year round.
