River City Construction

What is your favorite River City Construction project?  What was your role in the project?

My favorite River City project was the Fox Metro Water Reclamation District plant expansion, where I was the project manager.  It was a big, complex project with a large self-perform (concrete and structural steel) scope and many subcontractors and equipment vendors.  Like every project, it had its share of challenges, but the combined team (client, engineer, River City, and subcontractors) worked hard to overcome them all together.

What makes River City great?

We are builders.  We have so many incredibly talented and hard-working tradespeople who take pride in their craft.  I love being part of project teams that are so focused on solving complex problems and overcoming difficult challenges.

How do you spend your free time?

I spend most of my free time with my wife, Abbey and our two sons, Owen and Colin, who participate in cross-country, jazz band, basketball and Boy Scouts.  When we’re not supporting their activities, we like to spend time outdoors hiking, running and biking.
