Selection for the Michigan Construction Hall of Fame is based on technical, managerial, and leadership achievements, as well as service to the profession and the community.
Former Barton Malow Executive Vice President and Chairman of the Board of Directors Doug Maibach was formally inducted into the Michigan Construction Hall of Fame on Thursday, October 26, in a ceremony at the Granger Center for Construction and HVACR at Ferris State University.
Selection for the Michigan Construction Hall of Fame is based on technical, managerial, and leadership achievements, as well as service to the profession and the community. Doug retired from Barton Malow in April 2022 after 38 years with the construction enterprise.
Doug formally joined Barton Malow in 1984 as a Layout Engineer and spent his early years working in concrete and self-perform, where he helped rebuild these operations and establish Barton Malow’s Interiors division. He also worked with labor relations to help negotiate many of Barton Malow’s union agreements. From there, he worked in the Healthcare and Education markets with notable clients that include Beaumont Hospital, Detroit Public Schools, and Oakland University.
A noted relationship and community builder, Doug became involved with industry organizations like the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), where he developed connections that led to several transformative projects, such as PNC Park in Pittsburgh and the North Terminal joint venture at Detroit Metro Airport. He led the Barton Malow Foundation from 2002 up to his retirement in 2022, using his role to engage more team members and industry partners with Barton Malow’s various giving programs. While leading the Barton Malow Foundation, he helped establish the Building Communities Golf Classic, the charitable giving employee match program, and the annual Community Week team members participate in throughout the first week of August.
Doug entered the Michigan Construction Hall of Fame with Bernie Mein (Mein, Inc.) and David Ruby (Ruby + Associates). The three 2023 inductees have a combined 130 years of experience in construction. Learn more at the Michigan Construction Hall of Fame website.
