Worker Wednesday- Gerardo Mendez

What do enjoy about working at Lithko? 

I enjoy working and providing for my family. I like to see projects built and to feel proud of doing a job well. I am satisfied when I go home after a day of hard work. 

What were your responsibilities when you first started with Lithko? What are your responsibilities now? 

When I started at Lithko, I worked as a field lead on a large project. I am currently filling the need as a Crew Task Lead and offering advise as needed while I wait on the next job to lead. 

What work challenges excite you?

I like challenges at work. They drive me to be better. When faced with one I think, "If anybody can figure this out, it is me." It feels good to solve problems because I grow as a professional. I am currently working on a project with a pan slab design. Wood boxes are used where non typical forms are needed. I devised a plan to line the forms with Styrofoam which allows the box to be stripped out of the slab using through bolts to the table form. Then a crane is used to move it from one floor to the next with minimal rework. This has saved 2-3 manhours per box. 

What is your career vision?

My career vision is to be a Project Lead and run a job from start to finish.
