Summit VP Advocates for Careers in Construction Trades

Trades Appreciation is a Big Part of Summit’s Success

It’s important to work with a company that can relate to your specific position and career.

Both our President and VP, Marc Padgett and Bernie Cornelius, grew up in the trades, ran jobs as superintendents and currently run Summit Contracting Group as the biggest supporters of our field teams and subcontractors.  

Summit has been ranked as the #1 Multifamily Builder in the nation because we appreciate our trades as much as our clients. That’s a big part of our secret to success.

Recently, Bernie contributed to a video project that highlights careers in plumbing.
