"ALWAYS IN ALL WAYS"
"BUILDING PEOPLE BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS"
These are to company mottos we remind ourselves about very often.
Very much of the technicians & construction craftsman enjoy building things, take a lot of pride in the work, aware of the amount of coordination with other trades and the immense amount of satisfaction when walking away after everything came together to see a finished product.
it's just a bonus when turned over to the owner or client and you can see the satisfaction and happiness.
Those moments above pull you through the not so fun labor intensive activities, some of the safety risks along the way and the financial risk taken by the business owners.
