Get to Know Our Producer and Host: Tom Dioro

Tom Dioro is the founder and president of ACCURATE with more than 20 years of experience in the architecture community and construction management. A true architecture aficionado! His business grew out of his obsession to find building materials and technology that are better, faster, and more cost-effective. Tom knows that it was an odd thing to obsess about, but as far back as he can remember, he has always been fascinated by the discovery of a better and more effective mousetrap.


Tom worked in the architecture and construction management industry for more than 25 years as a buyer for Hughes MRO commercial division and as the CRO with several architectural firms. He realized that the continual research and sourcing he did on building materials for fun, even as a kid, could be of significant value to the AEC industry.


Today, he works with award-winning architecture firms, designers, and major municipalities. World-class cities and Fortune 500 companies also rely on them as their trusted advisor and as an information and sustainability resource.
