In the world of construction, “family” means a lot of things. In some cases, there are multiple family members working together: mothers and sons, fathers and daughters, uncles and nephews working side by side. In other crews, the impact of family comes from working for a family-owned company. And, in other cases, a new family is formed through the bonds of working with a great team. One of the biggest drivers of new individuals to the construction industry is influence from a respected family member or friend, and we’re here to help share the stories of what family looks like in construction.
When Jackie at Mosser Construction talked with the team pictured in the photo, she learned more about what family looks like at the company.
From Jackie: “One of our experienced bricklayers (front row, left side) Kevin Neuman wears a long sleeve button up shirt with his gold chain to work every day. The whole crew decided to dress like Kevin and declared the day “Kevin Neuman Day”.
I had seen this picture and heard the story about it and I remember going to the job site and when I talked to Kevin I said “I feel like I am meeting a celebrity” and Kevin just smiled and said “I don’t know about that, these dang kids” and just laughed.
That’s our family!”
