Q&A with Walker
If you could give one piece of advice to someone looking to enter the construction industry, what would it be?
Find a company where you feel like you fit in and are part of a family. Having a place of work where you can grow personally and professionally is your key to success.
What do you enjoy most about the work that you do?
I enjoy getting to see multiple projects being built at one time and helping each team grow through the entire construction process.
If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would it be?
I’d be on the deck of a mountain cabin with a view of the mountains and lake.
