Founded TDS Construction in 1987 for the sole purpose of providing construction services to the retail industry throughout the United States. Mr. David Scherer served as the President of TDS Construction for 27 years before his untimely passing in early 2015.
Although TDS Construction had experienced growth over those 27 years, David’s commitment to the company’s retail clientele never wavered. David grew TDS Construction from its first year in 1987, completing 18 projects in 10 states, to completing over 3,380 projects in 46 states and Puerto Rico during his time. Now equipped with a staff of over 65, many with 15+ years of experience with TDS Construction, he instilled in his employees a passion for providing a superior level of service. From developing our unique team structure, to continually looking for ways to maintain TDS Construction’s leading presence in tenant improvement construction, his sense of motivation for the continued growth and success of TDS Construction is still present.
Beyond his work at TDS Construction, David was an avid donor and participant to many local charities. Boasting Meals on Wheels Plus of Manatee as his “pet” charity (13 time Golden Fork Sponsor), TDS Construction also sponsors many children’s sports teams, as well as also supporting many other local area charities including but not limited to: Manatee Children Services, PACE Center for Girls, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast, Boys & Girls Club, Coastal Conservation Association, and the Coast Guard Foundation. This is a true reflection of his character, and
TDS Construction is honored to continue these sponsorships in his memory.
Left behind in his wake is a legacy of dedication, integrity, and enthusiasm. His wife and daughter, along with all of his long standing Project Managers and staff, have and will continue to honor him by continuing to provide the same level of service and commitment that he had become known for.
