The designation means he has completed advanced training and testing in Construction Documents Technology. The comprehensive program encompasses topics such as writing, interpreting, enforcing, and managing construction documents.

Caldwell is part of the company’s Sioux Falls office, creating digital models and contributing to construction documents in its fully integrated, multidisciplinary architecture, engineering and planning firm.

He earned his associate of applied science degree in architectural engineering technology from Southeast Tech. He put that learning to use for a structural firm before joining TSP in September 2019.

The CDT curriculum, designed and administered by the Construction Specifications Institute, takes learners on a full tour through a project’s life cycle. In addition to covering the full project structure and the ins-and-outs of bidding, the CDT training comprised relationships among design firms, owners, and contractors, including various delivery methods.
