25th Annual Women in Construction Week – March 5th-11th 2023
Since 1998, Women in Construction Week has celebrated and promoted the role of women in the construction industry. This year’s theme, ‘Many Paths, One Mission’, celebrates the different journeys women have taken toward the same goal: strengthening and amplifying the success of women in the construction industry.
Andrea Seward’s Path
With 25 years of experience at G. Greene, Andrea Seward was one of GGC’s first APM’s. After her time at Wentworth and on co-ops with large companies where she worked on projects like the Big Dig, she was ready to look for a local, smaller company. Her advanced computer skills were an asset to our company at that time and her knowledge and use of technology continue to be an important part of her contributions to GGC today. While Andrea never imagined staying at one company for 25 years, her confidence grew year after year due to the continued support from “the guys in the field” who are also still here today, especially Mike MacNeil, Jay Castrucci & Dan Deverix.
Now one of GGC’s Senior Project Managers, Andrea manages projects for Intercontinental Real Estate and Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM), most recently. Reflecting on her time at G. Greene, Andrea says the greatest piece of advice she has carried with her is to “trust your gut.” Very early on Bob Greene told her to go with her gut on a project and it has become a hallmark of her style of project management. Andrea looks forward to the future of G. Greene with hopes to see more females join the team.
Women at G. Greene
G. Greene employs 12 women in construction. At 7% of our workforce, while this is the highest percentage in our history, we are slightly below the national average of 10.9%, a number we hope to raise. By continuing our relationships with Wentworth and other universities educating project management professionals, as well as trade & carpentry programs and commercial drivers we look forward to bright futures and career development paths for our women.
