9 Women Construction Leaders Share Their Best Career Advice

A good read for anyone in the industry or thinking about pursuing a construction-related career! 👷‍♀️🛠

"Jobsite spoke to nine construction leaders who are paving the way for future generations of women in the building industry. The women, who range from a project manager to CEO, offer sage advice for women of all ages who are interested in a career in construction." In 2005, the number of women in construction numbered 1,079,000. A little more than a decade later, that number dropped to 939,000. Today, women only makeup 9% of workers in construction. What gives? It’s time to take a serious look at how to shift the perception that construction is best left for...

One of our #AlfredState #constructionmanagement #graduates is on a job where the backflow preventer needs to be replaced on a water line. This device is used to protect the main water supply from being contaminated due to backflow.

The project has strict #safety requirements as it's considered a "confined space." This means the work area has limited/restricted access and is not meant for continuous occupancy.

Here you can see the facade of a building is being supported while the main structure is being rebuilt. Typically this is done with older buildings to preserve its historic look. Swipe to see the view from the other side!!

One of our #ConstructionManagement mentors is visiting #London this summer! So far she has experienced a large variety of architecture in such an old city that is continuing to grow and build. Among the old style buildings are lots of more modern, contrasting buildings, many of which were designed by Italian #architects! @ London, United Kingdom

#Architecture and #ConstructionManagement students commonly take #structures their junior year. In this class, they often play around with self supporting structures like this one!

In this picture, rods are being press fit into a gear rack for a senior project. To accomplish this, the racks were heated to expand the steel, then the rods where pressed into the holes. Once everything is at room temperature, the pressure and friction between the two parts will keep everything secure. #STEM #WomeninSTEM #MaterialScience #PioneeringPaths #engineering #SUNY #AlfredState

Pictured is a piece of cold rolled steel before and after being put in the torsion machine. The machine holds each end of the bar and twists it until failure. The lines on the bar are straight originally, you can see in the second picture how it was twisted.

Creating a weapon that can fire automatically is only half the challenge. The other half is deciding how to cool the gun without increasing its weight or burning the soldier using it. As a result, the Browning Model1919 A6 .30 caliber machine gun is air cooled. #HeatTransfer #MechanicalEngineering #STEM #PioneeringPaths

One of the requirements for the senior #architecture students was to make a walkthrough for their class. The walkthrough uses a software that places you inside of the building you designed and allows you to walk through the space like you are really there! #technology #alfredstate #walkthrough #womeninarchitecture #suny

The scaled down model of #MountRushmore was changed multiple times before construction even started. It was changed to account for the mountain size, cracks in the rock, and to capture the lifelike features of each president. #Architecture #STEM #PioneeringPaths

In #architecture, models are nice to show the representation of the design before any work is actually completed. This is because the actual size with the same material can be costly, and sometimes there is only a limited supply of materials, giving the designer one chance. This model is of the presidential heads at #MountRushmore we talked about yesterday. #STEM #PioneeringPaths

#MountRushmore is famous for its 60 foot heads of the four presidents which took 14 years to create. This was accomplished by using a 3 point system with a model of the creation. As a result, it allowed precise details to be made into the mountain. The main struggle was not to take away too much stone as it can never be replaced. #Architecture #EngineeringMarvel #STEM #PioneeringPaths
