Playa Copeland – Assistant Superintendent

What is the most exciting thing about working in this business? The most exciting thing to me about the construction business is the ability to create something that’s going to be here when we’re all gone. It is getting to leave a small imprint of yourself for the next generations.

What is your philosophy about giving back to the community? My philosophy is that when you give back you receive more in return. In today’s world we as people are all so consumed in our lives that we forget, that some people just need a little help. To give a little of your time to help may be the easiest thing to do but it is an effect that can change the community. When you give more, change more peoples lives and that  help that you gave creates a trickle down effect to their families and then it trickles down to other families and  eventually could make an impact to heal a community. So Give more to get more.

Name a technology innovation that has made an impact in construction or an area where there are opportunities for innovation.   Technology as a whole is a great innovation because it can do things that we as people cannot. It can create faster more intuitive ecosystems that are more easily controlled, make jobs safer by implementing safety measures that could be missed or not seen by our abilities and altogether bring our world to the forefront of safety and imagination.

Tell us an awesome fact about yourself or the role you have in the companyA fun fact about me is I really enjoy learning everything. I feel that knowledge kept is knowledge lost. So the more I can learn the better of an asset I feel I am for myself and the company. I may not need to know or even use certain aspects of what’s learned but knowledge is free and I feel should be shared. If put together properly, it can make a job go by faster, safer, and more enjoyable. Allowing partnerships to be made that people can trust and look forward to in jobs to come.
