What was your most notable project in 2017? Working on the MGM Springfield. As a member of the construction services group, I worked on the construction management plans and temporary traffic control plans. This project required multiple construction management plan volumes for the hotel, parking garage, and casino. It also required various traffic control plans for the utility installations and coordination with the I-91 viaduct replacement project.
Why the A/E/C Industry? I had always favored the math and science growing up. In high school I took an introduction to architecture and engineering class that I really enjoyed. From there I decided to major in civil engineering at Northeastern University. I did a co-op at an electrical contracting company and have been interested in construction and development ever since.
