My journey into construction started with personal interest. Despite having a degree in business management and marketing, through networking I found my role in the estimating department as a Junior Civil Estimator. I primarily work within Grace Industries focusing on civil work and excavation.

Everything in this industry starts from estimating, so it’s a good foundation for your career. In this role you begin to understand the whole scope of construction. Haugland Group offers the opportunity to rise through the ranks. For anyone trying to one day become a Project Manager, I recommend starting in estimating. There are many opportunities and benefits here at Haugland Group and as I continue my career, I hope to retire here one day.

Though I went to college, I don’t believe it’s a requirement for the field I’m in. I work alongside many people who did not go to college who are able to learn and grow in this field.
