Congratulations to David Rodriguez on receiving the Beavers Scholarship for UA civil engineering students pursuing careers in heavy civil construction.
The Beavers was founded in 1955 as a heavy civil construction association. The purpose of the Beavers is to promote goodwill, friendliness and consideration within the heavy engineering construction industry; to give recognition to those men and women who have demonstrated particular skill, responsibility and integrity; and to encourage and support entry of promising young individuals into heavy engineering construction.
This summer, Rodriguez has been an intern with Whiting-Turner Contracting Company in Phoenix, where he worked on the Block 23 project.
“I have been in contact with subcontractors requesting bid proposals for the project, doing take-offs and attending scope-of-work review meetings,” Rodriguez said. “It has been a lot of fun, and I have learned a lot about construction management during my time here.”
Rodriguez has been taking construction courses at UA. This academic year, he is the project manager for the UA ASCE Concrete Canoe team.
