“It’s usually me and a couple of KL staff on the job site with all of the different contractors. So there’s a lot of engagement and collaboration going on every day. And it’s different every day. You never know what the next step or the next day will bring. I really like that about this job. I also love that we get to hit the reset button. Our construction staff get a nice break every winter to go in the office and help the design crew. Then we get to hit reset again, go back outside, and get a fresh start on a new project in the spring.”
