The Architectural Glass and Metal Certification Council (AGMCC) has appointed Turner Construction Company Project Executive Tina Donnelly to its board, effective 1 April 2023. Donnelly will serve a two-year term.

AGMCC and its board oversee the North American Contractor Certification (NACC) and Architectural Glass and Metal Technician (AGMT) programs, North America’s only third-party credentials for glazing contractors and glaziers. The 18-member AGMCC board provides an equally balanced voice from the glazing industry and stakeholders. Members include 50 percent representation from glazing contractors and glaziers; the remaining 50 percent includes general contractors, architects, component manufactures, curtainwall consultants, specifiers, and other glazing project stakeholders. Donnelly will represent and share her construction industry perspective.

“I look forward to supporting the AGMCC board and bringing more awareness of the NACC and AGMT programs to my construction management and building envelope colleagues across the country,” said Donnelly.

Donnelly has 30+ years of construction industry experience, ranging from preconstruction and estimating to field management of multi-million-dollar construction projects nationwide including the recently completed Denver International Airport Terminal Expansion. She also spearheaded Turner’s building envelope risk management program that established protocols to build projects with zero defects. In addition, Donnelly maintains involvement with the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA). She holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Virginia.

“Over my career, I’ve seen the construction industry evolve to today’s delegated design process in which the engineering and performance of building envelopes falls within the subcontractor’s purview,” Donnelly explained. “Because of that shift, glazing subcontractors especially must broaden their knowledge, technical expertise, and installation abilities to ensure quality. The NACC and AGMT programs work together to support glazing subcontractors’ success, help ensure better performing building envelopes, and minimize risk for general contractors and owners.”
