At Findorff, we are passionate about sustainability. While Earth Day is a great time to refocus our attention on the natural assets surrounding us, it is also important that this focus extends beyond this one day each year. As part of Findorff’s ongoing innovative initiatives, a dedicated group of sustainability leaders launched Findorff Footprint, an in-house resource that tracks the implementation of various sustainability goals.

From the field to the office and from site safety to project management, my time at Findorff as a Project Manager Co-Op has offered me both hands-on experience and much career direction. Prior to this opportunity, I had little familiarity in project management. However, through the help of my team and everyone at Findorff, I was able to develop many skills to guide my future in the construction industry.

What a thrill these past months have been! Recently, Findorff was awarded planning and construction management work for DeForest, Oregon and Waunakee school districts. What makes the Waunakee and Oregon School District projects unique was their need for community support at the voting polls in November. After extensive planning and community outreach, BOTH districts were successful and soon planning and construction will begin!
