Landmark Construction employees took first place at the Sacramento Regional Builders Exchange Education Foundation (SRBXEF) 2016 Trap Shoot on Friday, November 28, 2016. This was a fund raising event to support scholarships for students pursuing construction careers. Over 50 people participated in the competition held at Coon Creek Trap & Skeet Club in Lincoln, CA.
Bill Freymond, Estimator and Aaron Quintanar, Superintendent, Landmark Construction, organized the two teams that represented the company and included subcontractors. “During the trap competition, participants shot three rounds of 25 individually,” said Freymond. “Then, the teams with the best total scores advanced to the championship round.”
Congratulations to the first place team of Stuart Ferguson, Jim Johnson, Kris Johnson, and Bill Freymond (substitute) from Landmark Construction along with Ken Thomas, AK Mechanical and Brian Quilty, Brice Mechanical. It was a tie going into the championship round and these steady shooters demonstrated their consistently accurate aim at the SRBXEF Trap Shoot to take first place.
Landmark Construction’s other team was represented by Chris Martin, Eric Boehringer, Aaron Quintanar, Bill Freymond and Scott Keeling, Owner, AK Mechanical.
As a general contractor that focuses on building schools that inspiring learning, Landmark Construction frequently supports events that contribute to education. The SRBX Education Foundation uses the funds raised to support the CREATE Mentoring Program and Design Build at local high schools and to provide scholarships to CSU Chico and CSU Sacramento Construction Management students. “This SRBX event was a great idea,” said Freymond. “Employees want to come out to support a good cause.”
This event was just one of many sporting activities that the company sponsors for employees, according to Freymond. “Participating was great for team building among our own employees,” said Freymond. “It provided an opportunity to socialize outside the office and get to know each other better. Mingling with the other contestants also gave us a chance to see subcontractors and industry associates.”
Freymond, who recently joined Landmark Construction as an estimator after over 25 years in the Carpenter’s Union, enjoys his work. “Everyone here is so easy to get along with,” said Freymond. “I am also enjoying the diversity of the work that we do and opportunity to learn more about other trades.”
