Employee Spotlight: Alex Wellford

Meet Alex Wellford, Superintendent!

How did you get into construction and why?

My parents added onto our house several times while I was growing up. I was always interested in watching/pestering the carpenters, building things with the scraps, playing in the sandpile, and climbing the framing. I worked for a great contractor in high school and college, eventually running a company of my own. I have always loved the details, the daily variety, and the smell of construction.

 

What is the best part of your job?

I enjoy all of the people that I get to work with in building great projects.

 

What is the hardest part of your job?

Schedules

 

What is your dream job if you weren’t in construction?

Ski Instructor, mountain guide, or travel blogger.

 

Best way to spend a Saturday?

Hiking with my wife and our dog Milo.

 

If you could only listen to 5 artists/bands for the rest of your life, who would they be?

The Beatles (including all their solo material), The Grateful Dead, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Miles Davis, LCD Soundsystem….oops, more than 5.
