What do you enjoy about working at Lithko?
I enjoy the fact that every day and every project are different and each presents different challenges. A jobsite is a very fluid place, where the conditions and circumstances are constantly changing. This leaves no room for monotony in the work on a day to day basis. I believe Lithko does a great job of letting you tackle these challenges with little to no interference.
What responsibilities did you have when you first started with Lithko? What are your responsibilities now?
I started with Lithko as an intern, while attending college. I assisted project coordinators with pre-construction and project management tasks. Once I started full time as a project engineer, my responsibilities changed to getting more involved with our daily planning processes and ensuring successful execution of the plan each day. I also started to learn layout and field engineer tasks.
My responsibilities now consist of the overall management and oversight of a project from beginning to end of the concrete construction process (From setting up a job during the pre-construction process to the execution of the concrete scope to demobilization).
What work challenges excite you?
I enjoy encountering situations or problems that I have yet to see in my career. This allows for creativity and collaboration with the crew to find the best solutions to these problems.
What is your career vision?
Eventually, I want to get into operations management. However, I feel that the position of project lead has a vast amount of room for growth. I would like to stay in this position and improve with project I complete before moving on to the next phase of my career.
