Mortenson Construction Honors “Women in Construction”
Mortenson Construction is honoring women who prove that construction isn’t just for men.
The company hosted a luncheon honoring 25 of their female employees who work in skilled trade, and construction management.
The women were honored for their work on Sanford’s new hospital.
One of the honored employees says it’s about showing that women can do it too.
“We’re smart enough, we know how. We might not be as strong as the strongest guy, but you know what? We get by. We get our stuff done. When you can’t out muscle it, you out think it, it works,” said Carol Bontjes Carpenter at Mortenson Construction.
The event is a part of Women in Construction Week that runs through March 13th.
