why are you proud to work for Schaefer?
In my experience, it’s rare that a company can offer Schaefer’s combination of creative, fun people to work with, really interesting projects to work on, and the opportunity to make an impact both in project work and on the firm.
what is your specialty?
I enjoy the challenges of wood design – it can demand much more attention to detail than many other materials, but requires the least amount of skill from a framing crew. You have to be at the top of your engineering game, but shoot straight enough that anyone can pick up the plans and build the structure. Walking the line between simple solutions on-site and the complexity required of modern, multi-story wood design is where we strive to shine.
