Holland Construction Puts Sharing and Bonding at the Center of Women in Construction Week Celebration
Holland Construction Services iscelebrating Women in Construction Week March 6-10. We spoke with Senior Project Manager, Miranda Stevens, who is the Women in Construction Week Committee chairperson at Holland to learn more about this celebration.
Today is the start of Black History Month, so we would like to take this as a moment to reflect on some of the contributions Black Americans have made to the construction industry. From inventing groundbreaking technologies to pioneering new processes and systems, these individuals made significant contributions that helped shape our industry into what it is today. To honor their legacy, let’s take a look at five Black Americans who have made lasting impressions on the construction industry.
Ryan Savage has been with Holland Construction since the mid-2000s. Over his tenure, he has risen to the top of the Education and Municipal division and sat down with our team to discuss some of his experience in the Education market.
25-year Construction Industry veteran Kurt Steinmann recently joined Holland Construction Services as Project Executive, bringing a diverse portfolio of multi-family project management experience from across the country to the team. We sat down with Kurt to get to know him better and understand what he brings to the team.
While we continue work on dozens of multi-family, industrial and commercial projects across the region St. Louis and Southern Illinois region right now, we're also working on several K-12 schools projects. With the initiation of the Dorris Elementary School project in Collinsville, IL, Holland Construction Services has officially logged 50 K-12 projects into our project portfolio. These 50 school projects add up to over $400MM in total renovation/construction costs and over 2.5 million square feet of space. We're certainly not stopping there either as we are currently managing an additional four K-12 construction projects and one higher education project in the Metro East.
Holland has built an unparalleled reputation in multi-family construction serving as valued members of our clients’ development teams.
We have accumulated an extensive knowledge base by working with owners, architects, engineers and specialized trade contractors through the pre-construction and construction phases, delivering nearly 3,000 apartment units in the St. Louis Market.
Thanks to Missouri State Statute 67.5050 enacted in August 2016, Missouri schools have more options to find the delivery method that fits their construction needs. The statute added construction manager at risk (CMAR), as well as design-build, to the list of authorized construction methods and it has been gaining popularity for school projects across the state ever since.
