Vanessa Carman is not only a worthy candidate for Hermanson’s Friday Foreman Focus, but we believe she could be a serious contender for Woman of the Year.

Vanesa is the Trimble/RTS foreman specializing in Trimble layout and is currently based at Google Block 25. “I think it’s amazing how far construction technology has come in such a short amount of time,” says Vanessa, “I remember being on layout crews as a new apprentice and it would take a week to complete a single floor, now using Trimble that same layout could be done in one day!”

Women of Hermanson (WOH) met last week for an afternoon of bowling, beer and comradery at Tukwila’s Bowlero Lanes.

Hermanson Plumbing Foreman Kolin Kozlowski entered the trade eleven years ago at the urging of friends and has never regretted that decision.

During his four years with Hermanson, Kolin has worked on a range of projects including downtown high-rise buildings, renovations, and healthcare facilities. He has specific expertise in Trimble® operations and finds the technology increases manpower efficiency and accuracy. Trimble® is a GPS system that orients positioning at a building site for marking pipe hanger locations. “Before Trimble®, the task of positioning hangers involved an army of workers with tape measures,” says Kolin. Now technology sets the points and a tape measure does a quick double check.

Passing through SeaTac Airport this summer?

You may see a familiar face if your flight plans take you through the North Satellite Terminal.

In a clever twist on the standard “Pardon Our Mess” signage, the Port of Seattle created a series of posters featuring contractors and Port personnel. The posters help direct, encourage and inform passengers of the progress on the North Satellite Terminal renovation and add a bit of whimsy to each traveler’s journey. Hermanson’s own, Local 66 sheet metal worker Joe Hudson, adorns one of the posters that greets passengers at the North Terminal.
