CCC Employee Spotlight

Ashley O'Grady

Project Engineer

How would you describe your job?
Writing RFIs, submittals, reviewing shop drawings, making v-plans, coordinating with the field and other trades, attending meetings, and production tracking. I’ve been lucky to get exposure to a lot of different responsibilities.

What is your favorite part about your job?
I like that I’m able to have a balance between the field and my desk. I love being out there interacting with our team and seeing the work done firsthand!

Why construction?
My construction career started in 2015 when I joined the Operator’s Union. I’ve always loved being hands-on. After 8 years of running equipment, I realized I wanted to learn much more about the “why’s” of what we do and all the other factors that come into play. I wanted to be a part of helping projects be more successful.

How would you describe CCC to someone outside the company?
I think CCC actually cares and wants their employees to be happy. They constantly make an effort to bring employees together, which makes for a great company culture.

What skills are most valuable for this position?
Since construction is ever-changing, I would say being adaptable and being able to work with and communicate well with people has helped me a lot.

What do you like to do outside of work?
In my free time I’m probably DIY-ing something that should be done by a professional. I love doing house projects and fixing things on my own. I also enjoy mountain biking, snowboarding, and just being outdoors.

Do you feel safe, valued, and heard in your role/with the company?
Heck yes! Everyone on my team so far encourages me and wants me to succeed.
