Mary Kane-Butkovich, Project Director
What do you love about the construction industry?
Every project is a new challenge, every day is an opportunity to learn and we get to work with teams of incredibly talented people who come from all disciplines of the industry!
Advice you would give other women entering our field?
Get out on the jobsite, talk to the trades and learn something every day!
Your favorite project to date and why?
After almost 35 years there have been so many! Notably for me are the many years Toni Berry and I have spent constructing projects for NCMC, as well as Gun Lake Casino Expansion which provided the opportunity to work with an amazing team! I am currently looking forward to continue to build our Correctional/Judicial market with several great teams as well!
What professional organizations are you a part of or recommend?
AIA, Rotary, Lansing Area Safety Council and I recommend NAWIC – especially for women just entering the construction industry. NAWIC is a great way to make connections and offers many resources to women in the construction industry.
What are your hobbies or what do you like to do in your spare time?
Skiing in the winter, biking in the summer, and I’m an avid reader on rainy days.
