Headshot of Todd Symonds with gray background

Todd revels in complexity and is known for his skilled leadership of some of Goody Clancy’s largest, most challenging, multi-phased projects. He has broad experience across academic, science, technology, and business school projects, and serves as a firm-wide resource for project leaders, mentoring them through the design and construction processes.

Through his many years of practice on large-scale renovation projects, Todd is well versed in the rehabilitation of historically significant American buildings from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries. His clients have included Stony Brook University, SUNY Purchase, Harvard Business School, and Boston University.

Todd served as project executive for the new headquarters of the Department of Homeland Security—an adaptive reuse and addition to the 175-acre St. Elizabeth Campus in Washington, DC. Todd led the design of a mix of 726,000 square feet of renovation and 200,000 square feet of new construction to bring new life to this national historic landmark site. He is currently working with Florida State University on a new business school building that will meet the stature of their growing program.

Todd is passionate about trains and will travel quite a distance (preferably by rail, of course) to see one in action. When he can’t make the trip, Todd has a notable set of model trains and tracks that he’s built in his basement shop.
