He has extensive experience in hospitality, medical and government projects working with such institutions as Marriot, Hampton Inn, LeFontain Memory Care, and the states of Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma- to name but a few.
You’ll want to get to know Dave because he’s a grill master! Ribs are his specialty and he keeps the kiddos happy with s’mores. His greatest joy in life is seeing his children succeed.

Claude has been in the Construction Industry for 30 years, with 28 of them dedicated to estimating and 26.5 years in the DFW Market. He has estimated over $2 billion of construction projects and contracted over $500 million worth of projects. His abilities include budgeting projects from the initial concept (napkin drawing) to construction documents. Claude has a large network of subcontractors and suppliers that will bid on any projects he has in front of him. The diversity of TriArc’s projects keeps Claude at his peak and always on point!
Don’t get on Claude’s bad side because his favorite movie is Revenge of the Nerds. But the only revenge he’ll ever take is trying to make you laugh. Although he may challenge you to a game of golf or a smoke-off. And while he says it’s possible to beat him at golf, it will be an uphill battle to beat his custom-built smoker that feeds lots of happy people.
