“I believe what sets C.R. Crawford Construction apart, both as a company and as a great place to work, is that we have intentionally assembled a great group of people who are willing to set aside egos and personal ambitions, and really commit to working together as a team. That may sound simple, but in the construction industry, with the challenges that almost every project brings, keeping everyone focused on serving clients and growing the company can be difficult. Our team works through challenges together, while always supporting each other. This has led to a company culture that is uncommon in our industry, and created what I hope and believe is a great place to work.”
