Building Community Leadership Award
The Peter Arrigoni Building Community Leadership Award was established in 2019 in honor of the late Peter Arrigoni. Pete served as General Manager of the Marin Builders Association from 1977 to 2003 and served on the Marin County Board of Supervisors from 1968-1976. His tremendous positive legacy will long be felt in Marin County.
The award recognizes an individual for excellence in industry leadership and community involvement. Award recipients are considered based on their dedication to industry, commitment to education, and support of the Marin Builders Association.
The Marin Builders Association presented the inaugural Peter Arrigoni Building Community Award to Tom Barr of Ghilotti Bros., Inc. Tom is Vice President of Estimating with Ghilotti Bros., Inc. and has been with the company since 1987.

He has been a Registered Professional Engineer since 1992 and was the President of the Association of Engineering Construction Employers in 2010.
Tom first became active in the Marin Builders Association in 2010 and was encouraged to join the board in 2011 by Peter Arrigoni and Aimi Dutra. He was elected as Vice President in 2015 and served as President of the Board in 2016. He has assisted with nearly all Marin Builders Association committees including Public Relations, Finance, Insurance, BAPAC and the Scholarship Trust.

For nearly a decade, Tom has directly supported the association and the industry, regardless of the event, program, or initiative. Congratulations, Tom Barr!
