At Brannan I work primarily on our CDOT projects estimating and managing the projects from bid time through completion. These projects are primarily paving projects with about half of the work subcontracted to other companies that specialize in various aspects of the road construction industry. My role includes building and maintaining schedules, coordinating subcontractors, and anything else that might be required to fulfil the state requirements. I started with Brannan as an intern after finding them at the CSU Career Fair and have worked my way up to the position I am currently in, I graduated with my degree in Civil Engineering from CSU. I love what I do because I get to be outside and because I get to see my work in the real world for years to come, it is very fulfilling to see all your hard work pay off! L to R: Women of Asphalt Colorado Branch Board members. Abby Glaser, Jo Taylor, Tammy Buck and Nicki Upright presented the award to Kelly French.
