VP – Building Group
Toby Basta joined Q&D Construction in 2006 with nearly 10 years’ experience in the carpentry and construction industries. His first undertaking was the 300,000-square-foot, eight-story Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe and its four-story parking garage. The highly-complex concrete superstructure led to work on more than $100 million in commercial projects for Q&D Construction over the next seven years including The Outlets at Legends, which gave Toby an opportunity to head up construction on two Scheels All Sports stores in Utah and Montana, respectively.
A Reno native and graduate of Reno High School, Toby received a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Colorado and a Master of Science in Construction Management from the University of California, Berkeley. In addition to his experience and academic credentials, Toby is a Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Accredited Professional, and is Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Certified. He is also a graduate of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) Leadership program.
As Vice President of the Building Group, Toby is responsible for oversight of all group elements, specifically, expanding Q&D Construction’s commercial building project and custom homes catalog by utilizing his experience managing numerous high-profile projects in Reno-Tahoe and across the West.
