This summer I completed my internship with K2 Construction in Lincoln, NE working on the Bridge Division. I have been with K2 Construction for going on 4 years. During this summer I had the opportunity to close out a Nebraska Department of Transportation Bridge project in Crete, NE. As well as, begin another NDOT Bridge project here in Lincoln. This summer,I have been able to challenge myself to carry out some of the concepts we learn in the classroom within the Construction Management program.

One concept I utilized from the classroom was reviewing aggregate gradation specifications to determine what aggregate I needed to place on my project. By having the opportunity to learn this prior to my internship, I was more confident in my decision that I was sending the proper material to my project site. This summer’s internship marked a major milestone in my career. I now will be able to take with me the concepts learned this summer and continue building them throughout my career after graduation.
