Stedmann B. McCollough
After acquiring a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Alabama and Bachelor of Architecture degree from Mississippi State University, Stedmann B. McCollough joined a large architectural firm in Montgomery, Alabama, where he was extensively involved in several major projects.
In 1994, McCollough was selected to serve as the Director of the State of Alabama Building Commission. The twelve-member Commission (consisting of the Governor, Finance Director, State Health Officer, State School Superintendent, 4 State Senators, and 4 State Representatives) is charged with supervising all state construction (including public schools) and is responsible for overseeing approximately $350 million in construction annually. As Director of the Alabama Commission, he managed a staff of 21 employees (including architects, engineers, inspectors, and contract administrators). McCollough also served as Alabama’s arbitrator for all claims and disputes between owners and contractors for state construction. While serving with the Building Commission, McCollough was elected by representatives holding similar state positions (from a 15 state region) to serve as President of the Southeast Region of the National Association of State Facility Administrators in 1998.
During his career, McCollough has been directly involved in all facets of the construction industry, which distinctly qualifies him to represent clients throughout the building process. His experience includes planning, design, inspections, project organization and management, contract administration, problem solving, and conflict resolution at all levels. In January 2000, McCollough resigned after over six years as Director of the Alabama Building Commission to establish McCollough Architecture.
