With the internship, Spencer is working with MCL’s Project Engineer, Sam Howe, putting together close-out documents which will later be given to clients when their project is finished. The documents will help explain how everything within the clients’ building works and who to contact if something ever breaks. When asked what he likes most about his internship, Spencer responded with no hesitation.
“It’s a lot of learning. A lot of stuff I haven’t learned yet in school and I like the feeling I am a step ahead of the other students at my school.”
Spencer wants to learn about every job and position at MCL but eventually hopes to become a superintendent here at MCL Construction.
“I’d rather be out in the field instead of sitting in an office for several reasons, but mainly because I get to physically see the buildings being built right in front of my eyes, allowing me to see a change,” exclaimed Spencer.
Spencer has really come to know and respect MCL’s Core Values: Passionate, Dedicated, and Thorough. He believes they are all important but, out of the three, he relates to being passionate the most by explaining, “When you truly love something, you are going to want to do a better job on the end product.”
MCL Construction uses many voices from within and outside the company to give informed advice, opinions, and techniques about construction methods, innovation, and technology.
