Field Operations

Operations employees at Brasfield & Gorrie are closely connected to the day-to-day progress of our projects, overseeing the performance and production of craft employees, scheduling, coordinating, and supervising other field workers, and, as a supervisor, acting as a liaison with other departments to make certain the project stays on schedule and on budget. They are the people “that make it happen”—swinging a hammer, tying rebar, laying concrete, and providing the management and supervision necessary for successful projects.
