The Road Less Traveled

We’ve all seen construction sites firsthand in our daily lives over the years, whether passing by in our vehicles or on foot, or maybe even when arranging our own homebuilding or renovation projects. We may not pay much attention to the skilled tradespeople on hand doing the hard labour, whether it’s loading and unloading tools and equipment, assembling scaffolding, assisting contractors, or mixing, pouring and levelling concrete. We may not know everything that construction workers do, but we probably have a pretty clear mental image of what they look like – and that picture doesn’t typically include women.

The Leading Partner in New England’s Industrial Refrigeration Market
