McCarthy Building Companies celebrated Women in Construction Week 2019 by highlighting four female professionals working on high-profile construction projects. Here are some career insights from McCarthy's KC female pros:
"I love seeing a project through. This is huge project and there are hundreds of little projects within it and being able to see all of your hard work transpire into something that makes the Tomahawk Creek water treatment plant function is - awesome." -Taylor Meulemans, project engineer, Tomahawk Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility Expansion project
"I've worked on healthcare jobs and schools and now wastewater treatment. There are still those same fundamentals that everyone learns but you can learn so much more. There's always something new to learn and someone to teach you." -Devon Murray-Mazany, Tomahawk Creek Wastewater project
"Not a lot of medical examiner facilities are being built so it's a unique experience. It's a mix between a lab and a hospital and it's a cool project." -Autumn Swinson, senior project engineer, Johnson County, Kansas Medical Examiner Facility
"Construction is always changing. You can go from one project to the next and have the same job but it's totally something new and you get to learn new things." -Cara Greenley, project engineer, Tomahawk Creek Wastewater project
A NAWIC initiative, the focus of WIC Week is to highlight women as a viable component of the construction industry.
