The Walsh Group’s Chief Estimator Susan Jillson has been named a 2017 Women in Construction award winner by Constructech Magazine.
The Women in Construction award has honored women in the industry who have gone above and beyond to transform work on the jobsite and in the office, through the use of technology. Jillson joins a diverse group of women who are breaking ground on new processes to improve productivity and efficiency at the jobsite, while opening doors for more women entering the space.
“It’s encouraging to see women in the workforce use technology in new ways,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director of Constructech magazine and president of Specialty Publishing Media. “Their out-of-the-box thinking extends to those around them and the projects they work on to set new precedents for innovation within their companies and the industry overall.”
With 28 years of experience, Jillson oversees multiple estimating teams and cultivates strategic relationships with clients, subcontractors and unions. She is responsible for evaluating computer estimating and establishing productivity-based labor estimating across a wide-range of project types.
