My role as an Associate Principal at AES is construction administration and the management of the construction administration team. Prior to joining AES, I was in the construction field as a contractor for 15 years. My field experience helps me to have strong communication and relationships with our contractors, because I know where they are coming from. I am also able to more accurately interpret and translate design intent and ensure that the job is being constructed as per our drawings and specifications.
My approach to my work is very pragmatic; I am primarily concerned with functionality. When working with a client, I strive to make them feel comfortable, build their trust, and demonstrate the advantages of having a construction administrator present during construction.
What I enjoy most about working at AES is our people; we have great diversity and a wide range of talents and skills in our office. I consider my greatest professional achievement to be joining the AES team. Before working at AES, I had a hard hat and a tool belt. I am proud of how I have been able to adapt my skill set to this position and grow with the company.
AES is more than your average engineering company. Our designs are unique and specific to each project, and we work on a variety of different types of projects. It is great to be a part of this dynamic team; I am excited to see what the future holds for AES.
