Thomas Schoonmaker

Founding Partner

Thomas Schoonmaker founded a large scale heavy/highway construction company in northern New Jersey in 1978. Building on this foundation, he developed a site remediation division to address legacy pollutant problems with management practices grounded in long term environmental protection. To create resources from the waste stream, he added a NJ licensed Class B recycling facility.  Green construction procedures unify the Tomco family of companies, incorporating a ‘wastes-into-resources’ philosophy with efficient, cost- effective construction, contributing management and operational efficiencies to the Gaia Technologies mission.
