Women In Construction Week

Women in Construction Week is a week dedicated to changing the industry stereotypes that women face, breaking down barriers, and providing new opportunities for women in the construction field. The construction industry is filled with opportunities where women can find success and build a career. Fortis has always been a place where all employees can excel, including women. Together we are stronger!

What is the best part of working in the commercial market sector?

I love the attention to detail, material selections and vision the designers have for these spaces. Watching it start as an empty space and transform to replicate their renderings is one of my favorite parts of the process.

What is the best part of working in the Data Center market sector?

The best part of working Data Center Market, or just construction in general , is the diverse group of people on the job. I have been lucky enough to be on my project site for the past two years, and talk about an amazing team full of experience and knowledge. Various people have supported my growth and knowledge and I would not be where I am at today without their support and guidance. Thank you!
