Meet the Team Monday December Wrap-Up

By December 21, 2020 No Comments

We’re loving the Meet the Team Monday post series on social media where we can introduce you to new staff and get to know our existing team. So we thought it’d be nice to round up all the staff featured each month in a blog post to have on our site. We hope you enjoy learning more about our team too!

Get to Know Garco: Meet the Team Monday December Featured Team

FRANK HOERNER – PROJECT ENGINEER

Project Engineer Frank Hoerner has been with Garco for just over a year and has worked out at the Ridgeline High School project in Liberty Lake, Wash. as well as the Yakima Training Center TEMF project in Yakima, Wash. Frank spent two years as a laborer and operator in the field prior to joining Garco. During that time, he had the unique opportunity to actually work as a subcontractor for Garco on projects like Shiloh Hills Elementary and the Pavilion. Frank enjoys his role at Garco as project engineer, sharing “It gives me an entirely different perspective of construction. I enjoy communicating with all the subs on the job site, learning about different trades, coordinating work with project managers and superintendents, working with design teams, and keeping project documentation organized and accurate.” He adds, “It is a special feeling to start something from scratch and see a beautiful project produced as the end result.”
Frank is thankful to be a part of the Garco team. He says, “My knowledge in construction grows every day. Garco cares about my growth and development and provided opportunities to do so through education and training.”In his free time Frank likes to stay fit by running and participating in sports. He says, “I like going fishing in the warm months and hitting Mt. Spokane to go skiing in the winter. I also enjoy spending time hiking and hunting on my parent’s property on Greenbluff and simply being in nature.” Frank moved into his first home this fall and is a new dog dad to a chocolate lab pup named Hank (pictured with him here!).

 

MICHELLE ROBISON – PROJECT ENGINEER

Project Administrator Michelle Robison has with Garco for a year now and is working at the Washington State Convention Center project in Seattle, WA. Michelle says, “My role with Garco has been very rewarding. Garco has been supportive in my career, in working towards being a Project Engineer. We build projects people depend on. At the end of the day you see the progress you and your team made. Watching that progress turn into a completed project, day by day, is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. Garco is a great place to work and is really like one big construction family. Everyone works as a team, works together to overcome obstacles and is very supportive.”

In her free time outside of work, Michelle enjoys spending time with her son, Carter (17), daughter Emma (12) and her boyfriend Matt. Matt is also in the construction/building materials industry. Michelle says, “I am passionate about my career, so it is great to have someone in my life who knows and understands construction.” She also likes traveling, hiking, fishing, spending time outdoors, cooking, and music. Fun fact, prior to the Convention Center Project, Michelle worked on one of the biggest high profile projects in Seattle history, the Alaskan Way Viaduct Demolition Project.

 

JEREMY SWEATT – SUPERINTENDENT

Superintendent Jeremy Sweatt has been with Garco for over four years and is currently working at the Cle Elum Dam Juvenile Fish Passage project. Jeremy says, “I enjoy being part of the evolution of work on the site. Participating in a project from the early planning stages to completion is extremely rewarding. It provides different challenges that include engineering, scheduling, safety, team building, and creativity. This constantly changing landscape affords rewarding opportunities to grow and succeed.” He also really appreciates that Garco is a family-focused company. He adds, “While Garco may be made up of hundreds of employees, I believe that the core ethos of the company is togetherness, teamwork, and community. I’m proud that the company I work for has a long history of supporting their employees and the Spokane community.”

Outside of work Jeremy enjoys sharing his time with my wife. He says, “I often work out of town, which makes our time together more limited than most couples. We try to spend most of the summer weekends at our lake cabin enjoying boating, fishing, and simply laying in the sun. It is especially nice when our daughter Emma, who lives and works in Bellingham, can come and enjoy the sunshine and an evening campfire.”
