My last assignment was the new ECUA administrative building -- a 50,000sq ft building which included

ndustrial shops, laboratories, a safe area for emergency operations, as well as executive offices and class

rooms. I participated in some of the underground work, and was made responsible for all the above ground

pieces of switchgear and cabinets, 7 transformers, and a 30KW UPS and developed forms and worksheets;

On the Snug Harbor Condominiums, I was assigned to special projects for a 12 story 90 unit condo,

where I responded directly to the architect, effecting changes & corrections. Initially I performed interior

and exterior steel stud framing as part of a 5 man team. I participated in lay-out both on the unit and

structural level. Later worked solo, setting up & operating an on-site pre-fab shop for both wood and

steel applications, where I milled and installed, all 600 sets of door and window bucks, as well as the 200'

of balcony chases on each of the 12 floors, also pre-fabbed, roof components, built all the soffets, and

gables, did some PVC drain work and minor HVAC duct work. I also helped coordinate and facilitate
