Construction brings numerous people together and in my role, I’m involved with many of them on a number of fronts.    What is most distinctive for me is the respect the Company has from those we associate with  – clients, staff, trades and communities – and the quality of work that results from it.
I’m very proud to be part of that and excited about the future.
