Team PPE is proud to have been part of this historic project!

From Greg Huber with Mortenson Construction:

 

Good morning! As you start your week, I wanted to make sure that we spread the word of a fantastic award that the project received last week.

The project received the “2022 Sports Facility of the Year” award at the Sports Business Journal awards event.

This is a national award, and the project competed against other projects such as Allegiant Stadium in Vegas, SoFi in LA, Footprint Center in Phoenix, among others.

More than anything, I wanted to pass on a giant THANK YOU to all of the leaders, managers, craftworkers, fabrication shop technicians, and all others who made such an incredible award possible. Your perseverance and commitment to constructing this incredible facility made this award possible.

Please pass on this THANK YOU to your team as you start your week.

Caleb Wohletz named to Autodesk 40 Under 40: Champions of Construction 2021

November 2, 2021

Autodesk Champions of Construction 2021

Caleb is an inspiring example of someone who has worked their way to the top. Throughout his AEC journey, Caleb continues to demonstrate admirable values in the form of strong leadership, hard work, and resilience.

His first job included hands-on labor for an architectural sheet metal fabrication company. He also received mechanical experience working with CNC machinery doing maintenance repairs, swapping out parts, and ensuring the equipment ran smoothly.

In 2012, he was hired at Precision Precast Erectors (PPE), where he joined the Local 14 Ironworkers Apprenticeship Program and became a journeyman steelworker.

Caleb continued to add to his skill set by learning how to successfully manage projects and people. In 2015, he realized the importance of technology in construction and developed PPE’s IT initiative. The firm started adopting various construction software, and Caleb oversaw the use of these programs for various projects.

Because of his accomplishments, Caleb was promoted to a General Superintendent position, and then to Operations Manager a year later. Today, his responsibilities include project planning and scheduling, as well as collaborating with GCs, clients, and suppliers to ensure that projects are all completed on time and within budget.

Caleb also demonstrated strong, and much-needed leadership skills amidst the pandemic. He implemented various procedures that enabled teams to work remotely with minimal disruption. And for those who had to come into the office, they were able to do so safely, thanks to Caleb’s guidance.

Fast forward to 2021, and PPE continues to thrive—with many thanks to Caleb’s meaningful contributions.

“Caleb’s work ethic is noticed by all employees, and they recognize that Caleb values their time. He truly leads with a servant’s heart.”
