Women in Construction Week 2021: Part 2

In honor of Women in Construction Week, we want to take the time to feature some of the amazing women in our office! Read our second Q&A with Project Coordinator, Kelsey Hammond.


How did you get into the construction industry?

About 5 years ago a residential flooring company was hiring and it was something that peaked my interest right after college.

What do you love about your job?

My favorite part about my job is that everyday I am learning something new. No two days are the same.

How do you strive to pave the way for other women in the industry?

Just speaking to friends and family about the industry, the opportunities it presents and what the future looks like. I think people are unaware of the changes and diversity in the construction industry.

What’s a typical day like for you at i2?

A typical day includes working with subcontractors, project managers, superintendents on the day to day tasks.

What’s your advice for other women looking to get involved in the industry?

Make that jump and keep working hard. The industry is growing and fast!
