What excites you most about the work you do?
The best feeling I get as a superintendent is seeing the project take shape during the finish stages of the project. When I start to see the project take shape, I step back, look at your project and realize I made this happen. All the time and effort I put into this project during the early stages has finally come together.
What do you like best about working at HBW?
HBW has so many great qualities, but the one that stands out to me is the teamwork. There have been some tough projects along the way, but with the support my team has given me, I’ve been able to bring each of those projects to the finish line. My team leader is only a phone call away. I can’t tell you how great it is to know you are not on an island by yourself while running your project. Having that reassurance is everything when you come across certain challenges while building your project.
What’s your favorite project you’ve worked on so far?
The project that stands out in my mind is the DAI project that I worked on with Mike Alisea. The reason this stands out to me is for the simple reason of how well my project manager and myself worked together to complete this project. This was a very detail-oriented project that required a lot of quality control. The communication we had throughout this project was key. There were several areas throughout the project where we had to step back and re-evaluate how we would overcome the next challenge while keeping one another up to date with what was happening onsite. Maintaining communication throughout the project not only helped us get to the finish line but also gave us back the creditability with the client. This was no easy task, but in the end, that is why this was one of my favorite projects to have the opportunity to be the superintendent onsite.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I always enjoy spending time with my family and friends. In my free time, when I’m not with family/friends, I practice both forms of martial arts called Jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai. I also really enjoy hunting during the fall/winter seasons and fishing all year round.
Anything else you think prospective employees should know about HBW?
No matter what career path you choose, HBW gives you all the tools you need to be successful. In most companies, you are just a number, but here at HBW, you are more than just a number. Your hard work and dedication will not go unnoticed. That is what sets them apart from other general contractors.
