Celebrating Women in Construction Week with ECI’s Leading Ladies

A new decade, a new era of construction is in motion. The number of women breaking into the construction industry is on the rise, and we love seeing this new evolution. In honor of Women in Construction Week, we felt it was only fitting to feature a few of the leading ladies of ECI. Anna, Krystle and Sarah have been integral members of our project teams for years and have contributed tremendously to ECI’s success as Colorado’s leading parks and recreation general contractor. Get to know the women under the hard hats:

Anna Hoehn, Project Manager

Productive, precise and passionate about her projects, Anna has been involved in some of our most prominent projects over the past several years: Twin Silo Park, Broomfield County Commons Park, and Mehaffey Park, just to name a few. She began her ECI career in 2014 as a project engineer and was quickly promoted to project manager. Her knack for efficiently resolving obstacles and maintaining excellent relations with field personnel allow her to deliver consistent quality, regardless of the project scope.

“My favorite part about being in the construction industry is working with such a variety of people. I think there is a stereotype that construction is only for hyper-masculine men. In reality, that stereotype is just not true. We all look different and we all act differently, but we come together to create these amazing play spaces for families to have fun and create memories. It’s a pretty incredible calling.”  – Anna

Krystle Benoit, Project Engineer

Krystle’s upbeat personality and strong relationships with subcontractors make her a favorite among clients and partners. A detail-oriented self-starter, she operates with a collaborative approach and provides valuable support to project managers and site superintendents to get the job done. Krystle has been a part of the ECI family since 2017 and has since worked on high-profile projects, such as the Poudre River Whitewater Park, Westminster Central Plaza, and the award-winning Woodbriar Park.

“My favorite part about working in the construction industry is getting the opportunity to see a project come to life and having the opportunity to help others in the same field.”  – Krystle

Sarah Evans, Project Engineer

A member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Society of Women Engineers, Sarah uses her strong organization skills and strategic thinking to assist project managers in numerous tasks. She began her construction career with ECI in 2019 and has been an essential part of the Poudre River Whitewater Park project and our new Painted Prairie project. Sarah has excellent interpersonal skills and does an outstanding job of making sure all personnel understand approved and updated plan sheets and specifications throughout each project.

“I chose to pursue a career in construction because I love to see designs come to life and be a part of the team making it happen.”  – Sarah

Kudos to these outstanding women in construction; we are lucky to have you as part of the ECI family!
