Sarah Snow, Project Manager, WIC Week Profile

"Inside of this building was a subzero climate cold chamber that needed to be able to remain at -65 degrees F at all times to be able to test the functionality of certain machinery and vehicles in it at extreme temperatures. This project utilized heat tracing in the underground plumbing and a Vehicle Exhaust System that was rated for up to 1400 degrees Fahrenheit. A wide range of knowledge was used on this project but collaboratively we made it a success."

Sara Curtis, Marketing Director, WIC Week Profile 2021

When I was little, I spent many hours playing with a wonderful set of Legos®. I've had a fascination for the built environment since then. My career path, although far from construction, has developed in the built environment over the past 20 years and I've found a home in it. I may not swing a hammer or an excavator, but I enjoy showcasing the people, places, and projects that do and telling their story.
