Women in Construction

Emily Frazzoni/APM

(Raymond, NH) Growing up in N.H. and going to school for civil engineering at UNH, Emily decided to go into the construction industry to better understand how the things that she was designing actually came together. “I thought it was important to gain experience in construction to make me a better engineer.”, she said.

“I enjoy working at Jewett Construction because it is a small, family-owned company, and as a result we have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects.”, Frazzoni remarked. “I have only been out of college for eight months and have already worked on grocery store remodels, car dealerships, site modifications, retail buildings, a timberframe barn, and mechanically intensive projects. I enjoy the family-like atmosphere of a smaller company where everyone is friendly and willing to help but will push me to succeed and grow.”, she said.

Jewett Construction has grown and changed immensely even in the short time Emily has been with the firm. “We have a talented team with a variety of backgrounds, some with many years of construction experience and others fresh out of school. With our diverse specialties, I’m excited to see what new projects we will have the opportunity to work on in the coming years and throughout New England.”, said Frazzoni.

Emily commented that she never felt she would go into the construction industry when she was in high school or even when she was studying civil engineering in college. She hopes that other individuals, either in high school or college, consider the construction industry as a possible career path. “Construction is fast-paced and changes every day. In my short time in the industry, I’ve enhanced my problemsolving, customer-service, organization, and time-management skills. It is hard work, but I really enjoy it!”
