Holland Construction Services Celebrates the launch of our 50th K-12 Project in Illinois

Posted by Neal Stewart on Nov 11, 2022 12:04:41 PM

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.

Women in Construction

I recently read a blog about women in the construction industry and how they are making an impact (www.constructconnect.com/blog/the-state-of-women-in-the-construction-industry-in-2020). I really enjoy reading these kind of articles. In the almost 6 years I have worked in construction, I can definitely tell a difference in the numbers. When I first started, I was the only female in my position at the company I worked for as well as on the jobsite except for the final clean crew -- today working for Holland at the Whispering Heights project site we have women working in various trades.
