2015 Summer Interns – Jacob Bower
Purdue University Junior Jacob Bower joins Wilhelm Construction this summer to work with the project team in West Lafayette. Over the course of the summer Jacob hopes to learn more about estimating and scheduling so he can apply it to his studies in construction engineering management.
Primarily, Jacob will be working on the Myers Bridge and Reihle Plaza Pedestrian Bridge. In addition, he will assist with other projects on Purdue’s campus. Specifically, he will be submitting and tracking submittals and requests for information. He will also manage correspondence between the architect, engineers, and field workers to ensure the project is going as planned. Additionally, Jacob will perform small quantity take-off and estimating throughout the summer.
“I chose Wilhelm because it was the first company I interviewed with that showed a lot of interest in bringing me along.”
Jacob hopes to build a few projects of his own this summer when he is not busy with work.
