During the week of March 30th, Sugar Creek Construction, LLC, a joint venture of Ferrovial Agroman S.E. and English Construction Co. LLC, hosted an engineering recruitment event with graduating engineers from top universities to help identify top talent to join Ferrovial. Upcoming graduates from Northeastern University and Georgia Institute of Technology traveled to the I-77 Express Lanes Project Office in Charlotte, North Carolina to meet with project leadership and staff. The construction of the 26-mile I-77 Express Lanes is creating a long-term, reliable travel option down the middle of the I-77 North corridor by providing drivers with a choice of how to travel on I-77 between Uptown Charlotte, NC and Exit 36 in Mooresville, NC. The express lanes are dedicated travel lanes that will run adjacent to the existing general purpose lanes. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
Ferrovial's engineering recruitment eventThe engineering recruitment event began with a message from the Project's CEO, Carlos Garcia Escrig, who gave insight into his own career path along with a detailed overview of the project.
"I joined Ferrovial as a young engineer right out of school. When new engineers are able to meet with seasoned professionals and ask questions, they are able to develop relationships that continue throughout their life. Events like this shows how much Ferrovial cares about long term career growth. I still remember visiting my first Ferrovial project and I am more passionate about the company because of that visit." - Carlos Garcia Escrig, Sugar Creek Construction, LLC CEO.Once everyone completed a field safety orientation, the students visited key project areas to witness complex design elements being brought to life by construction. They had the opportunity to visually inspect welding and pile driving activities on the expansion of bridges near Lake Norman, the largest man-made lake in North Carolina. After a tour of the project, the team of engineers returned to the project's office site where they learned in depth the history, and future direction and objectives of Ferrovial Agroman in North America. A dynamic Q&A session gave the team of engineers chance to ask questions to leadership and provided a great opportunity for them to build a foundation of knowledge to make an informed decision on why to join Ferrovial.
