- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I enjoy meeting face to face with a new customer to discuss the scope, logistics, and sequencing of a project. Once we are on the same page as to what the end product is, I will look for value engineered items, in an effort to reduce cost, but maintain scope and quality. Lastly, we discuss schedule, and any possible change orders for additional and unforeseen work, if necessary. My goal is to have a realistic budget from the beginning. If there are any potential change orders, I will identify and provide a rough order of magnitude cost, so there are no surprises.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
At the age of 18, I worked for a General Contractor that focused on concrete driveways, stamped overlays, and wood flooring installs, as well as residential additions / renovations. In my junior year of college, while getting a degree in Construction Management, I began working for larger commercial contractor. In the past few years I have realized I enjoy smaller projects. I am USGBC LEED Accredited, I have OSHA 30 certification, a Class B Building Contractors License, and multiple Project Management courses through the Association of General Contractors.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've always loved building stuff. Out of high school I started working for an acquaintances father, who was a General Contractor and I never looked back!
