How long have you been with NCC?
I started my 28th year here the beginning of November. I originally started as a Field Superintendent. I have been in the construction industry since 1977 and have worked all over for different construction companies.
What is your official title here at NCC?
I am a Senior Project Manager and work specifically on commercial projects.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Everyday is different. I get here and hop on the horse until it bucks you off! Each day is busy and you try to plan it out, but you really just have to go with the flow.
What are your favorite types of projects to work on?
Out of all the commercial work we do, some of my favorite projects are banks, medical facilities, and churches. Recently I worked on the Canvas Church project. When I started we were doing 1-2 churches a year, ranging from remodels to new construction. I think we’ve done around 18-20 churches since I have been here. Churches are something I worked on in previous positions as well.
Who is your ideal customer?
Someone who takes the time to educate themselves, or who is knowledgeable about their project. It is always helpful if someone understands what they are asking for.
What is your advice to someone in or looking to get into the industry?
My advice would be to keep themselves current and up to date with the ever changing rules and regulations. It is hard to do, but necessary.
What is it like working for NCC?
It has been really good. I am in charge of a lot, but NCC is very trusting of their team which says a lot.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
You get to see the finished job after everything is done. I also really enjoy working with the customers.
What is the most challenging part of your job?
Regulations, they are always changing.
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time I enjoy fishing, hunting, and spending time with family. When the two come together, like hunting in Lanesboro with my son, that is great.
