  • What is the best thing about your job? Our jobs are tough, yet very fulfilling and rewarding. Every day brings a new set of challenges that even with the best planning and skillful execution – sometimes it does not come together as it was designed; issues happen. Working through those issues to resolve them quickly and the days where everything just ‘clicks’ and the hard work and planning by the entire team – everything flows and happens – those are the good ones. We are lucky to get to work with a great team, great field technicians, trade partners, designers and importantly Owners that allow us to bring projects to life.
  • Why did you choose to work in the construction industry? Construction and hands-on work was always my passion and something I naturally gravitated to from my childhood on. It was a perfect fit and has been a great ride. Couldn’t think of a better career than being in the construction industry.
