After a short period of time doing carpentry work at Dow Smith, Gary was promoted to Superintendent where he managed everything on the jobsite, including subcontractors, materials, safety and daily project activities.
I love to learn to learn. Nothing energizes me more than gaining new insights and growing in wisdom and knowledge. I love going to construction industry-related conferences like the Construction Leadership Network and National Association of Church Design-Builder conferences. There is such joy in learning from my peers and colleagues, then taking that knowledge and applying to my life and my business.
The process of constructing a building or orchestrating a fit-up is complicated. Requiring multiple people and even more hours, there are opportunities for projects to lose momentum or focus. At Dow Smith Company, it is our mission to ensure our customers are treated fairly and receive the quality building they deserve, on schedule and on budget. No matter the size or complexity of a project, our team has standards by which we manage our clients’ projects. These rules guide us so that we can better serve our clients. At the end of the day, we’re proud of a job well-done and a project well-managed.
We all need mentors and others to look up to. Fortunately, for Dow Smith Company, we have an entire network of mentors. Last week, a couple of our team members attended the Construction Leadership Network (CLN) conference in Tampa, Florida to practice win-win sharing. The CLN membership is comprised of a diverse group of entrepreneurs, commercial contractors and construction industry providers from throughout the U.S. and Canada.
