When Landmark Construction President, Joe Bittaker wants to say thank to his employees, tradesman and others involved in a project, he barbeques. “I am a Georgia boy, and nothing says thank you like cooking for people,” said Bittaker.
“On January 20, we were ahead of schedule at the Natomas STAR Academy project job site in Sacramento, and we served buffalo and beef tri tip, grilled chicken and sausage plus bratwurst and hot links to celebrate,” said Bittaker. “It is one way I can say thank you to the team that is dedicated to this project. We are proceeding rapidly and they continue to innovate to overcome challenges on a daily basis.”
At the January gathering at the STAR Academy job site, Bittaker cooked for over 80 tradespeople representing earthwork, concrete, framers, electrical and plumbing. “I had some help from Jacob Raibley, my partner in barbeque crime,” said Bittaker. Raibley started with Landmark Construction as a student intern and has been able to progress through several assignments to his current position as Assistant Project Manager and “barbeque chef and coordinator.”
The company hosts a jobsite barbeque about once a month. “After our regularly scheduled weekly meeting, we celebrate the recent successes by serving lunch to everyone,” said Bittaker. “It builds camaraderie, increases communication and reinforces that collaborative environment you’ll find at all of our jobsites. The owner, architect and site staff often join us as well.”
Bittaker is known for his expertise at the grill and often cooks at education, community and sporting events that the company sponsors as well employee appreciation events.
