It’s once again Intern Thursday here at W. M. Jordan! This week’s spotlighted interns are Brandon Rash from Virginia Military Institute and Noah Dondero, Zach Sprinkle, and Jake Weaver from Virginia Tech.
First-year intern Brandon is working on the senior living expansion project at Covenant Woods in Mechanicsville, Virginia. Brandon assists with analyzing plans on-site, debris removal, and site cleanup—skills he hopes he can one day utilize as an engineer with the U.S. Navy. When Brandon isn’t working, he enjoys playing baseball, volleyball, and guitar.
Noah, another first-year intern, is working on the new Marriott tower on the beautiful Virginia Beach oceanfront. His primary responsibility is recording daily safety and erosion and sediment control reports. Noah hopes the experience he is gaining this summer will help guide him to choose the right career path in the construction industry. Outside of his internship duties, Noah enjoys fishing, going to the beach, and working out.
Second-year intern Zach completes daily reports and safety checks at the new Member Services Center Office Building site, located in the TowneBank corporate campus in Suffolk, Virginia. This internship is giving Zach real-world, on-the-job experience as he works toward becoming an Assistant Superintendent upon graduating in January. Zach is completing his master’s degree in construction management at Virginia Tech. When he’s not on the clock, Zach enjoys running, surfing, and playing basketball.
Jake is helping to complete final punch list items at the new Virginia Commonwealth University Gladding Residence Center before students move in later this month. This is Jake’s second year interning with W. M. Jordan, specifically on the VCU residence hall, so he has watched its progress from beginning to end. Jake hopes to become a project manager one day. Jake spends his free time fishing, playing lacrosse, and hanging out with friends.
Our interns bring so much talent to the W. M. Jordan team. We enjoy learning from them, just as they are learning from us. We are happy to give our interns real-life experience in the construction industry and be a part of their professional development. Be sure to check our blog to learn more about our 2018 Intern Class!
