Who We Are

Thomas A. Howes

Following an extensive career in the development and building business, Tom joined Delphi Construction in 2014 and has helped expand the Cape office by providing experience and leadership on multiple projects and initiatives. With a strong technical background he has led the Cape in delivering energy efficient projects that reflect his commitment to building for the future. Keeping pace with continually changing construction strategies and techniques to build highly energy efficient and healthy buildings has been one of Tom’s commitments through continuing education and symposiums.

Before joining Delphi, Tom worked on major building projects on and off the Cape including several master planned communities with significant infrastructure components.   Beginning in 2006 Tom began an association with affordable housing advocates and developers on the Cape, and he has been involved with building affordable housing projects in several towns across the Cape.

Tom is a 12th generation Cape Cod native, and the son and grandson of local Cape home-builders. He has made his home on the Cape since 1982 with his wife, and his four children are all Cape natives. Deep roots to this special place give him a unique perspective and ability to consider the  past and future for the peninsula.  

A graduate of Harvard with a degree in economics and an interest in architecture, Tom also attended the Boston Architectural Center after receiving his degree. Prior to his career in the construction industry, Tom coached rowing at MIT while competing in rowing for the US National Team, winning a silver medal at the 1979 Pan Am Games, and being named to the 1980 Olympic Team.

An avid cyclist and hiker, Tom also enjoys boating on the Cape, in most any craft that does not require a motor.
