Our Culture

For our team, ownership isn't just a word; it's a shared reality. As an employee-owned company, every team member is an owner of our mission. Fueling our vision of rewarding dedication, our Employee Stock Ownership plan grants true economic equity, equips our team with wealth building, and fosters a profound sense of pride and accountability in every project.

Beyond ownership, we cultivate a thriving culture of inclusion. With ongoing Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) initiatives, we foster a safe and supportive environment for all. Our team is comprised of rich diversity across our leadership, contract, and back-office teams. This creates a dynamic environment for learning, development, and mentorship where everyone can thrive.
