I began my career in construction as... an Associate Estimator for an industrial contractor. I mainly estimated re-tooling of auto manufacturer plants. All take off was done with architectural prints and highlighters.
My favorite project was... The Doghouse Hotel. This was the first project I estimated on my own and was able to visit the site and see the progress first hand. It's truly a one-of-a-kind hotel. I am proud to have been a part of its construction.
The best part of working in the construction industry is...all the work completed has tangible results. It allows us to physically leave our mark on the landscape.
