| 4 minute read

In the ever-evolving world of construction, McClone Construction stands out as a beacon of innovation and adaptability. Since its inception in 1975, McClone has carved a niche in structural concrete design, planning, and construction, tackling a diverse range of projects from education to residential sectors.

"Me being just six months into my career, I'm able to sit at the table across a Superintendent with 20 years of experience or across my mentor who's got decades of experience. It's really cool because we're all working on the same page. I think it benefits superintendents, pre-construction, project managers, and estimators the most because we're all able to just hop on a video call and work out site logistics with ease​”.

However, my aspiration is to really inspire other team members to not be afraid and research, look up things that interest them, and pitch them to the rest of the team."​​ said Viamonte.
