How did you end up in construction?
Bob Frei: Growing up, I lived next to a family who owned a small construction company. I began working the summer months at the company’s shop, performing maintenance and repairs on equipment, and soon after, started on the field with residential framing. After graduating from high school, I joined the union and began my career as a carpenter.
What do you enjoy most about the construction industry?

Many of my work relationships have turned into lifelong friends. I also really enjoy the sense of accomplishment achieved by maintaining and exceeding construction goals.
