Stanek Constructors, a general contractor specializing in water and wastewater treatment facility construction and heavy concrete projects in the Rocky Mountain region of the United States, offers students majoring in Civil Engineering or Construction Management full-time spring and summer internship experiences at various job sites in Colorado and surrounding states. The internship provides career-related work experience and could lead to hire upon graduation.
Working as part of the Stanek Project Management, Estimating, and Production teams, interns should expect exposure to many of the following: take off principals and basic estimating, document control, reviewing and understanding plans and specifications in preparation for bid assembly or production scheduling, submittal review, accurately updating construction or document logs and records, assisting with site coordination of materials, regularly capturing and cataloging site photos of daily progress, conducting rebar and form inspections, participating in progress meetings, and participating in the Nobody Gets Hurt safety culture promoted by the company.
Learning objectives will focus around review and interpretation of blueprints and project specifications, use of total station or other surveying equipment, general understanding of means and methods applied in highway heavy construction, basic takeoff practices to calculate cost of material or quantities needed for production, document control protocol, and overall safety principals for construction.
At the end of each internship, the student completes a self-assessment and the student’s supervisor completes a manager assessment form. These assessments summarize the duties performed during the work period and provide the student worker feedback regarding quantity and quality of work performed, work ethic, knowledge and competency, teachability, communication, attitude and self-control organization, adaptability, initiative, and reliability while on the job. Through an exit interview, the student worker has an opportunity to discuss the content and comments included in the forms.
If you are working toward a career in construction management with a company that believes the right people attract even better people, then Stanek Constructors would like to meet you!!
