Ty is from Shawnee, Kansas and will be beginning his senior year at Kansas State University, studying construction management. His career choice was inspired by his father, who is also in the construction industry. When he was younger, Josh would help his dad with all kinds of projects around the house.
During his internship, Ty has enjoyed working on many different jobsites and performing a lot of different roles. “It is reassuring to see the many different directions that a career in the construction industry can go,” he says.
A key takeaway Ty learned from a tenured Superintendent is, “If you aren’t six weeks ahead, then you are six weeks behind,” highlighting how important it is to plan ahead and know every detail of your project.
In his spare time, Ty enjoys spending time at the lake and is on a competitive BBQ team. We asked him for his Kansas-ranked pulled pork recipe… but he told us that was classified information.
