I have been a private contractor in Butte doing many different kinds of jobs throughout the state required in both building new residential homes and restoration/remodeling. In my approximate ten years of experience as a contractor, I have become very familiar and comfortable in utilizing a variety of tools and power tools required to work in the residential construction/remodeling field as well as operating heavy equipment. I am very motivated and driven to keep growing as a general contractor, and am passionate about working for a company such as yours in order to establish a career for myself. I believe I would be a valuable and substantial addition to your company .With the skills I have gained in my total twelve years of education and experience, I am both ready and willing to take on and accept more responsibilities that come with being a Construction Superintendent for your company.
After graduating from Montana Tech, I was hired on as a laborer for Skips Carpentry and Concrete. Soon thereafter, I acquired my business license and my contractors license, and began working as a private contractor. Throughout the last 10 years, I performed and completed many tasks involved in building residential homes and performing standard residential remodels. I have also gained the experience and knowledge to use standard hand tools, power tools, and heavy equipment. Working in a city such as Butte, I have encountered a number of different obstacles and have shown to be very adaptive when it comes to assessing a project and finding the most affective and efficient solution to complete the task at hand. My skills and experience include but are not limited to:
I spent two years (during college) volenteering for Habitat for Humanity. During that time, I was attending classes at Montana Tech, studying for my Associates Degree in Construction Technologies. while volenteering my time, I learned a lot of valuable lessons in becoming a general contractor. We were over seen my multiple Instructors, and fellow general contractors, while learning the basic skills needd to work efficiently and affectively in residantial construction. Over the two year span, I logged all of my volenteer work hours, as well as the jobs/tasks we were asked to do while working there. I found that working for Habitat for Humanity was not only very educational and an important "hands on" way of learning basic carpentry, but was also a very fullfilling experience. I worked side by side with not only my Instructors from the University, but with other Contractors volunteering their time and passing on their knowledge. While working for Habitat for Humanity :
After graduating High School, I began working at the local lumber yard in Butte. While working at ProBuild, I became certified in forklift operations and was assigned the responsibility to manage the other yard workers, unload semi trucks, stock materials in the warehouse/yard, and assist customers in loading their vehicles. One of the most beneficial aspects of working in the lumber yard was learning about all of the different materials used in the construction field which coincided with what I was being taught at Montana Tech for my degree. This was a very hands on way of taking what I was being taught in school, and seeing how those materials were ordered and applied to every day construction/remodel. Knowing the range of materials that are at your disposal in a lumber yard proved to be very important knowledge once I began starting my own bidding and building process as a private contractor. I was also able to develop a real strength in costumer service while assisting customers. I thrived as an employee who was especially helpful, knowledgeable, and respectful to all fellow employees and costumers. Some of my responsibilities and skills developed while working at the lumber yard include:
While attending college at Montana Tech of the University of Montana, I took a range of classes to educate myself in the Construction field. I attended classes that ranged from Standard Framework to Concrete Slump Testing/Finish Work. My classes also included courses such as Blueprint Reading/Drafting, the use of the Auto Cad program, Standard OSHA, and Job Site Safety. While in college, I was introduced to all forms of hand and power tools necessary to work as a general contractor. My graduating class was also responsible for building/crafting items to be sold at the annual Digger Athletics Auction, which supported all the athletic programs at the school. These items included adirondack chairs, custom poker table and stools, and hand made frames for donated paintings and pictures. I also participated in constructing a tailgating trailer that is still used at most football games. I also had the opportunity to attend classes such as Interpersonal Communication and Business Management which proved to be very helpful in learning to work well with all subcontractors on a given job site as well as the basic tools to efficiently run a construction crew. I also had the oppertunity to attend courses that certified me is basic Firtst Iad, Job SIte Safety/OSHA regulations, and Heavy Machinery Certification from CAT.
