Biography

Greg McClure, who earned a Bachelor of Building Construction degree in 1990, is vice president of sports development at Manhattan Construction, the firm that served as general contractor for the landmark Kyle Field development. Greg McClure and Gary Hall are examples of the industry heights that former Texas A&M construction science students can reach, said Joe Horlen, head of the Department of Construction Science in a nomination letter. “Their resumes are displays of excellence, consisting of one notable achievement and great distinction after another,” he said. Despite the Kyle Field project’s breakneck schedule, said Horlen, McClure, and fellow Outstanding Alumnus Gary Hall somehow found time to visit construction science classes to discuss industry careers with students. "McClure has passed along many words of wisdom regarding project estimating," said Lisa Cantrell '85, a project coordinator with St. Joseph Health System, in an Outstanding Alumnus nomination letter. He has played a leading role in more than $3.5 billion in construction projects which have earned more than 30 industry awards and honors, including renovations at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, construction of the George W. Bush Presidential Center, Apogee Stadium at the University of North Texas, and numerous other projects. In addition to serving the Department of Construction Science as a CIAC member and guest lecturer, McClure also leads projects with the Dallas Area Chapter of Hearts and Hammers, which refurbishes homes owned by low-income residents, and is also a board member of several organizations that strive to increase minority contractor project participation. He is a sought-after speaker and panelist at construction conferences, is a certified professional estimator, LEED accredited professional, and past CIAC member.
