Shawn Collom, Director of Estimating at The MDC Group, started in construction at a very young age building post frame buildings with his grandfather, and later into the HVAC and plumbing trades all before attending college. Growing up with a knack for numbers, it was only natural for Shawn to turn to estimating for a local general contractor while attaining his bachelor’s degree. Shawn currently oversees and manages the company’s preconstruction and bidding operations. Whether the project is a detailed set of construction documents or conceptual idea drawn on a napkin at lunch, Shawn takes pride in understanding what our clients’ overall goal is and assembling the absolute best available project team to reach those goals. Shawn graduated with honors from Indiana State University with a BS in Construction Management. His estimating background includes a diverse market mix of projects in healthcare, higher education, retail/mixed use, workplace and manufacturing/industrial. He holds general industry and OSHA 10 certifications.

Outside of work, Shawn is a devoted family man, small farmer and hot rod enthusiast. He enjoys spending his off time working on classic cars in his home shop and listening to his grandfather speak about the “good ole days.”
