Career awareness advocacy, whole-career training and development opportunities, intentional cultivation of inclusive environments—in order to build the workforce we need to meet the challenges and opportunities facing our country, Sundt is investing in people first.
Sundt sweeps the renovation category of the 2023 ENR Southwest awards. Learn how our project teams worked to preserve and showcase history while providing modern amenities and upgrades.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, while women are roughly half the workforce, they represent only 4% of the construction trades. We recently caught up with Emma Griffin, Hailey Fluckiger and Ariel Goodwin, three members of our Intermountain team, to learn what drew them to a career in construction.
We believe skilled, passionate people move our country and industry forward, and we want them on our team. Every Sundt employee is also an owner, driving a culture of shared success and a sense of pride in work worth doing, done well.
Sundt is proud to release our first-ever Corporate Social Responsibility report. This report is a demonstration of our core values and purpose in action, but it’s also a form of accountability. At Sundt, we believe our organization should be used as a force for good; when we build responsibly, we create prosperity for all.

Why Sundtwhat we build
Fire Central is home to Station No. 1 and the TFD’s administrative and fire prevention support personnel. The 70,000-square-foot, two-story structure includes firefighter living accommodations, six apparatus bays, fire department offices, Tucson’s emergency operations center and a public museum, all constructed over a below grade, two-level, secure parking garage.
We took great care to fit the big, municipal building into the style and scale of the surrounding historic neighborhood. Meetings were held with neighborhood representatives at the onset of design to help guide the project to a completion that would enhance the area while providing a modern facility for the fire department. We maintained close contact with neighbors throughout the project, adjusting building processes to minimize the day-to-day impacts on their lives. We also addressed their concerns about protecting a nearby historic chapel that was extremely fragile. The team made minor repairs to the structure prior to beginning construction on Fire Central and closely monitored seismic activity from construction equipment to prevent damage to the structure.
Not only did the completed Fire Central provide the TFD with a state-of-the-art facility, the process of building it also helped enhance the community and strengthen the relationship between the neighborhood and the city.
