We’re pleased to announce that Tyler Menard has joined Sundt as a field engineer in our San Diego office. Tyler comes to Sundt after interning with one of the Bay Area’s leading general contractors. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in construction management from California Polytechnic University San Luis Obispo. We recently asked Tyler a few questions to get to know him better:
What brought you to Sundt?
The people and the company’s amazing reputation. The culture here is unlike any other, and I saw a great opportunity to be with a company that will help me grow throughout my career.
Which project are you currently assigned to?
I’m assigned to the San Diego State University South Campus Plaza project. We will be building two six-story dormitories with retail on the ground floor, a parking garage, and a landscaped area leading into the campus.
What’s a typical work day like for you, i.e. what are your major duties/responsibilities?
I have recently been working on buyout, constructability reviews, and building contracts for first phase subcontractors. Once construction work begins my daily responsibilities will be managing submittals, Requests for Information, LEED, etc.
What would you be doing if you weren’t working in construction?
If I weren’t working in construction, I would be traveling. I spent a month traveling across Europe this past summer and I had the time of my life. There are so many more places I would love to go see, and traveling around South America is next on my list.
Favorite type of cuisine?
That would have to be American barbecue. You can never go wrong with a nice rack of ribs.
Best book you read recently?
My favorite book I have read recently would have to be “Band of Brothers.” I also watched the TV mini-series as well.
Who has had the most influence on you in your life?
My grandmother. She was one of the most selfless people I have ever met, and was someone who always gave back to her community.
How do you like to spend your free time?
I like to spend my free time going to sporting events, playing sports (beach volleyball, basketball, snowboarding), relaxing at the beach, and spending time with my family.
