Women in Construction Week: Kristie Bieniewicz

Date Posted: March 9, 2017

DETROIT, Mich. – Kristie Bieniewicz was born in a construction family.

Her father worked for years in construction and Kristie soon followed in her father’s boot prints and has spent 20 years in the industry, currently working as a Walbridge Project Manager.

Walbridge is highlighting a few of the many women whose contributions help our company thrive during the annual “Women in Construction Week.”

KristieBieniewiczRead about Kristie’s history in the construction industry and learn more:

Why did you begin a career in construction?

“I was born into a construction family. My father, Bill, worked for a construction company and I was born on a Saturday, so I didn’t interrupt the work week.

When I was growing up I spent a lot of time on all of his job sites, I basically grew up there. All the employees called me ‘Little Bill,’ for my father. I guess it was natural that I grew toward construction and that’s really how I ended up in the industry.”

What advice do you have for those interested in construction or starting in the industry?

(Laughs) It’s not for everyone. This industry can be very different than most. You have to be strong-willed and have to push people sometimes.

But that’s not a bad thing.

It can be challenging at points but there’s not a day that goes by where I wouldn’t do it all over again – I love it.”

What’s been one of your best memories in the industry?

“Seeing my old jobs featured on TV or on commercials. It’s so cool to be able to look at a building and say ‘Hey, I worked on that project.’”
