March 5-11, 2023, was Women in Construction Week. To celebrate the role women have in Philadelphia’s construction industry, GBCA spotlighted women who work on construction Project Management Teams in the Philadelphia region.

I love that it [the construction industry] keeps you on your toes. There is always something new to learn. Each project has its own uniqueness.

Jaime McGeehan, Senior Project Manager

Be relentless. Take classes, read books, and attend seminars. This industry is filled with individuals eager to share their knowledge, so take advantage of their wisdom.

Colleen McCann, Project Manager

Don’t be afraid to ask questions! Whether you’re asking a project manager, superintendent, tradesman, or another construction professional, everyone is willing to take the time to explain the details of a project.

Kassandra Sloan, Project Engineer I

I love being on site facilitating a building taking shape, knowing first-hand the countless details, and helping resolve the challenges of numerous buildings that have contributed to the growth of Philadelphia, the city in which I live.

Margie Arendt, Project Manager

I really enjoy how collaborative the industry is. On any given day, I’m problem solving with subcontractors, design teams, and clients – often all together. Each successful project is a team effort.

Laura McNeill, Engineer
