In celebrating National Hospital Week, we at Findorff offer our appreciation and respect for the incredible work that health care professionals do every day in caring for patients. It takes a tremendous amount of knowledge, teamwork, dedication, and commitment for hospital and health care staff to bring their expertise to bear on moments of compassion.
At Findorff, we are passionate about sustainability. While Earth Day is a great time to refocus our attention on the natural assets surrounding us, it is also important that this focus extends beyond this one day each year. As part of Findorff’s ongoing innovative initiatives, a dedicated group of sustainability leaders launched Findorff Footprint, an in-house resource that tracks the implementation of various sustainability goals.
This week we celebrate National Women in Construction Week. I believe this is such an opportune time to raise awareness, as well as increase the support of and encourage women in the construction industry. It’s a field I love!
At Findorff, we focus on the things that matter to our projects’ success – purpose, value, quality, scope and price. To do this successfully, we continuously advance the way we work, by blending the processes of planning, constructing, and completing projects skillfully (Engineer) with our intelligence, resourcefulness, and inventiveness (Ingenuity).

From the field to the office and from site safety to project management, my time at Findorff as a Project Manager Co-Op has offered me both hands-on experience and much career direction. Prior to this opportunity, I had little familiarity in project management. However, through the help of my team and everyone at Findorff, I was able to develop many skills to guide my future in the construction industry.

What started as an idea and a concrete foundation in my junior year of high school has become a full-fledged building in my senior year. While I was away working on college essays and summer homework, Findorff worked tirelessly to ensure I would have a better school in which to return.
Take a moment this week to reflect on all you do for your patients, care givers, staff and administrators. It’s truly inspirational.

It’s a new generation in the world of Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and Building Information Modeling (BIM).

Findorff has had the good fortune to partner with Madison’s John Muir Elementary School for the last few years. It’s rewarding to help in the classroom and cheer students on as they participate in athletic challenges like the Muir Mile Fun Run.
