Malcolm began working in the construction trades in Florida in 1971. Coming to Vermont in 1975 for Goddard College's Social Ecology Program, he focused his studies on energy efficiency, affordable construction, and renewable energy systems. He completed his degree in 1978 as well as a number of building projects serving diverse aspects of the greater Central Vermont Community including private homeowners, the Maple Hill School, and Goddard itself.

Since the early 80's, Malcolm's work has focused on green building practices, affordability, and home performance. He has expressed these values in projects that range from modern and avant-garde to traditional Vermont. A self admitted conference junky, he usually attends one or more construction related conferences a year. "The interaction with my peers in the fields of energy-efficiency, historic preservation, and renewable energy keeps me current and fresh in my daily work."

Malcolm also believes strongly in community service and political activism. He has worked with Central Vermont Habitat for Humanity, Central Vermont Community Land Trust, Vermont Center for Independent Living, and other local groups over the years. He also supported solidarity work in Central America, leading building brigades in Nicaragua that constructed schools, community centers, and cooperative housing.

One of Montpelier Construction's founding partners, his political values are worn on his sleeve and are expressed in his selection of projects, his management style, his collaborative work with clients, and his dedication to quality work in every project.
