Employee Q&A – Dan Abruzzi

What is your position/title and how long have you been at the company?

I am a Senior Project Engineer working out of our office in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I am coming up on my fifth anniversary with the company in just a few months.

What is your favorite part about your job?

I enjoy the opportunity to collaborate with others in a wide variety of trades. I also like that each project has its own unique set of challenges, so there is a good amount of variety in our day-to-day work. Additionally, I’ve enjoyed watching our office grow and expand throughout the years.

What are some projects that have made you proud?

I’m proud of the work we’ve done for our local school districts. It’s fulfilling to see that our efforts are directly benefitting our community and building strong relationships with the contractors in our region.

What is something about your job that people might not be aware of?

The engineering department is involved in more than just the submittal and drafting process. We work very closely with project management to assist with ordering materials and schedule tracking.

What are your hobbies outside of work?

In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities like disc golfing, hiking with my dogs, and kayaking. I also play the guitar and piano.
