    Micah Vainikka - Young Preconstruction leader at Knutson in Minnesota (Talks Talent & Technology)

    Our host Gareth McGlynn sat down with Micah Vainikka the young Preconstruction leader driving Knutson forward in Minnesota. 

    We discussed the incredible Scandinavian influence across Minnesota and how Knutson was founded by a Norwegian.

    Micah's story on working as a carpenter for a custom home builder while studying for his Construction Manager degree gave him a real passion for construction. 

    Micah is a perfect example of how a young high performing Project Manager transitions into Preconstruction, climbs the ladder quickly and is influencing how projects can be built faster, safer and better.  

    As always preconstruction technology is at the heart of this discussion and much much more.
