What advice would you give to those looking to enter the construction field?
Choose a field you truly desire. Make it your passion, and going to work will feel like a vacation! In my opinion, the best fields are engineering, energy conservation, alternative energy and technology.
What’s the hardest lesson you had to learn in your career?
The hardest lesson I had to learn would be following up—it’s so critical for every aspect of our business. The best way to catch anything missed or overlooked falls under following up. Every category of this business starts and ends here, and the sooner you learn this, the sooner it will pay off in experience, dividends and saved time.
AA Jedson has developed a reputation for superior service and excellence. How has it done so, and how can other construction companies establish a similar reputation?
Our ethics and work code make us stand out more than anything. We set a high bar and standards for ourselves; as far as planning, budgeting and scheduling goes, we stand out. We have found that the most important part of what we do is honesty. We have built a culture around ourselves as honest, hardworking and ethically correct, but we also are good listeners and value our clients.
