About Steven Senn

 

Worked with an electrical contractor on an industrial, multi-million dollar new-build while still in high school. Duties included: bending, cutting and running various conduits, pulling cable, threading pipe, cleaning and maintaining tools, constructing metal duct. This was my first real taste of a large construction project and where I first became fascinated with the entire process.

 

condo-developmentWhile attending college at Auburn University in 1993, I led a few crews that turned over units for several apartment complexes. This was typically just a paint and patch situation, with the occasional light fixture, ceiling fan and appliance replacement

 

Worked in industrial telecom and data service in West Alabama. Some of our clients were International Paper, Georgia Pacific, Gulf States Paper, Fort Howard Paper (formerly James River), Lafarge Cement.  Jobs ranged from small to large and complex, depending on scope.

 

Managed several crews on the Alabama and Florida Gulf Coast in 2004 after Hurricane Ivan passed through. We used heavy equipment to remove sand and debris from the main road ways.  The sand was cleaned using an industrial sifter and returned to the shore with earth moving equipment.

 

Worked on the Mississippi and Louisiana Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina. We were awarded a very large contract by the US Army Corps of Engineers. I ran several crews which included tree climbers, truck drivers, sawyers and heavy equipment operators.  Our crews worked with non-hazardous as well as hazardous materials. Received OSHA 10 Hour Certificate and also became certified in CPR and First Aid.

 

Worked in industrial sales and service.  Examples of clients included Outokumpo (formerly Thyssen Krup), Rock Tin Paper and Georgia Pacific.  Sold jobs varying from 10K to 1.5M depending on the scope of work. Projects ranged from roofing, industrial masonry, industrial coatings to new office build-outs.
