In 1976, Tom Nevares got his start in the concrete business, working first as a laborer and eventually getting involved with many phases of both residential and commercial concrete work throughout the San Diego area. In the late ’70’s he went to work for R.E. Hazard Contracting and L.R. Hubbard Construction, and was exposed to many aspects of highway, bridge and prison work. Super-structure concrete has been his forte since the beginning of his career in the San Diego concrete industry. Later in Tom’s career, he ran concrete jobs for several different San Diego contractors in foreman and superintendent capacities. During this time, he took preparation courses for the California State surveyors license, as well as educating himself in drafting and blueprint reading.
