Every project has a great story. With over 2,000 team members and almost 100 years of experience in the construction industry, Barton Malow has more than a few to tell that don’t fit the industry norm. We’re going to be bringing you the untold stories from the jobsite – the weird, the wild, and the unconventional paths to success. It’s construction, but it’s Said Differently.
Said Differently - Beyond the Build: Joe Holland
Every summer, Barton Malow welcomes dozens of interns to its jobsites and offices. One of our interns this past summer was Joe Holland, a University of Virginia (UVA) student who worked on the school’s Football Operations Center project. Joe’s story is unique, as this project was more than just an internship for him. Joe is an outside linebacker on UVA’s football team and will be using the Football Operations Center with his teammates for his senior season when it’s complete in spring 2024.
In this latest installation of the Said Differently Beyond the Build podcast, Joe discusses his internship experience, what attracted him to Barton Malow, and shared advice for future interns.
Episode #9 - Transformation, Innovation, and Brick-Laying Robots
Progress and back to zero. It’s not that construction has been completely absent of innovation, it’s just the start and finish nature of projects makes it difficult to carry over certain methods and technologies from one project to the next.
It’s been one of the major inhibitors in the construction industry, and as Director of Business Transformation Daniel Stone notes in the latest episode of Said Differently, “Transformation, Innovation, and Brick-Laying Robots,” there’s always a better way to do some of these more antiquated processes.
Beyond the Build: Morgan State University Partnership
In this latest episode of the podcast, Beyond the Build profiles Morgan State University’s Chairperson Dr. Lewis Waller and Barton Malow’s Senior Human Resources Manager Jeremiah Hovis to talk about our partnership and projects on and off the campus.
Episode #8 - Paving the Way to an Electric Future
The auto industry is well on its way to an electric future. Yet in order to get there, automakers need battery cells to power electric drivetrains – and they need a lot of them. Since earning its first lithium-ion battery cell manufacturing plant job in late 2019, Barton Malow has emerged as the world leader in Electric Vehicle (EV) battery cell construction.
In the latest episode of Said Differently, we’re joined by Senior Project Directors Alan Blanchette and Chris Hofe to discuss the size and scale of these projects, the difference between building a battery cell plant versus a typical automotive job, and the pride team members have knowing they’re part of a paradigm shift in transportation.
