The National Association of Women in Construction (https://www.nawic.org/) is celebrating Women in Construction Week 2022 (#WICWEEK2022) March 6-12. Summit Contracting Group is pleased to help NAWIC in its mission to strengthen success of women in the construction industry.
We are proud to recognize our team of women in multifamily construction, whose roles span multiple levels and specialties, from administrative roles to field superintendents, project management and executive leadership.
Leading into WIC Week, our office team members took part in a project tour. Employees used this opportunity to ask questions that pertain to their daily tasks and to gain a better understanding of the importance of their role in the construction of a Summit project.
Tacy McGinty, Division Manager, guided Project Administrators and Project Accountants through Fountainhead Apartments in Jacksonville, Florida. The project is turning units and interior finishes are in progress in the last few buildings, so this is the perfect opportunity to see phases of construction.
We discussed the flow of a multifamily construction project, task management between departments, as well as the relationships between the people who bring a large project to life from ground up (Owner, Subcontractor, Division Manager, Project Manager, Superintendent, Accountant).
As we toured the job site, we saw residents moving in, decorating their homes and meeting with leasing staff. Seeing residents move in really brings “home” the purpose of what we do.
There are few careers more rewarding than building apartments!
