Three years ago, Curtiss Irving started with the Lithko Indy BURG as a Laborer. Today, Curtiss is a Field Lead. His quick success is due to his great attitude and willingness to jump in on any task needed, earning much respect from his coworkers. He is driven and eager to learn more about the work he is performing, which has contributed to his ability to lead different phases of work.
His development stood out on the FedEx project, where Curtiss was assigned the Crew Task Lead role for the slab on metal deck. After three placements, Curtiss took control over the decks. He adjusted the manpower and planned for the staging of mesh to facilitate his work. The pours averaged about 20,000 square feet, and Curtiss reduced the workforce by 2 with his efficient planning with the Field and Project Lead. The prep came in significantly under budget, and by the end of the phase of work, he owned the prep entirely on his own.
Operations Lead Steve Warren, and the Project Lead identify Curtiss as a leader and competent to work entirely in the Field Lead role. His crews respect and work hard for him. Once Curtiss runs the morning huddle with his crew, he communicates throughout the day with his Lead, and there is minimal course correction needed.
