The featured student this week is Evan Lockhart, a civil and environmental engineering major from Cedar Hill, Tennessee, who worked for Brasfield and Gorrie in Birmingham, Alabama.
Lockhart was involved in Region 4, in commercial project management. A few of his job responsibilities were performing takeoffs, verifying change order quantities from subcontractors, updating tracking logs on activities performed on the jobsite, managing the inspection binder for all buildings in the development, procuring materials, and posting RFIs and submittals.
“If anything, this coop taught me to be proactive, because on a job as fast paced as the one I was on, it is easy to fall behind with all the work that takes place on a daily basis,” Lockhart said.
Lockhart believes the most valuable benefit he received from accepting this co-op was the opportunity to get on the job experience and the opportunity to find out more of what he wants to do when he gets out of school.
