Dedicated to Women in Construction

Women in Construction


This month we would like to honor these dedicated women, striving to make a difference as vital components of a very demanding industry.

Throughout history the many misconceptions about gender-specific roles in the industry are diminishing with an increasing number of women choosing a career in construction and engineering.


WE HAD THE HONOR recently, in talking with Shelia Herman of The Roberts Company. We are thankful for her giving her thoughts on her experiences over the years working in the construction industry.

What are the advantages of being a woman in construction?

None really, they expect the same for a woman as they do for men in the same craft. 

What advice would you give to a young woman entering the industry?

Study hard, pay close attention to what they are teaching you, never give up and always give 110 percent. 

What’s the best part of your job?

My co workers, the people you meet while working over the road become your family. 

How do you think construction can attract more female candidates?

Simple- just give them a chance. Let us show you what we can do. 

What’s makes you proud of working in the construction industry?

I am proud to go to a job and work with the people that make it enjoyable while enjoying what I do, proud that as a woman I have the opportunity to work in a field that has always been defined as a man’s world. 

What do you think is the most important change happening in the construction industry?

Technology, operating management and efficiency. 

WE STRIVE TO PROVIDE YOU THE BEST SERVICE. No matter what role our employees play, they are hard at work for you. Get to know a few of our experts.
