Event Coordinator: Naomi Hoque, Kanav Trehan
On March 8, 2016, the UBC CSCE Student Chapter partnered up with IGEN to welcome Jason Block, Senior Business Development Manager, and Ross Gilmour, Pursuit Manager, to present about major upcoming projects for Kiewit. The event also featured Alex Hutchenson, a former Kiewit Co-op employee and IGEN student, to share some of his experiences from a student’s perspective.
Most of the projects Jason and Ross spoke about were still under process and in the bidding stage, expected to begin within the next several years. The projects discussed were not limited to local project in British Columbia, but instead spanned all over North America, including projects in Edmonton, Calgary, and the US. For each of the projects, Ross and Jason provided an overview, demographics, cost, and hiring company or companies. They also shared their experience in certain aspects of the projects.
We would like to thank Jason and Ross for taking the time to share their knowledge, experience, and prospective projects with us. We look forward to coordinating events with Kiewit as well as IGEN in the future to learn more about Kiewit and the opportunities it has to offer. You can find more information about Kiewit and their current projects here.
