What Have the Branches Been up to?
Women in Construction Week!
The focus of Women in Construction (WIC) Week is to highlight women as a visible component of the construction industry. WIC Week also provides an opportunity for NAWIC’s thousands of members across the country to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry. Below are two of our very own, awesome women in construction- Louisa Sanders from the Sacramento Branch and Tammy Tanis, Sr. Project Manager for the UC Merced Downtown Center. We are lucky to have you!

Word of the Week: Passionate
adj.: showing or caused by strong feelings or a strong belief
Even though we work hard, we play hard too. Every week, we’ll show off our most important resource: the Collins Electrical staff.
This week, we introduce to you…
Jake Rovig’s adorable daughter/tiny entrepreneur, Abby Rovig!
Abby is a very ambitious 15-month-old, already working to save the earth and money for college- at the same time! She’s always wanting to “help” Mom and Dad, and never misses a moment to play with her brother.
With the recent rain, she couldn’t get outside but wanted to get out of the house. Dad ended up bringing her to the office to collect bottles/cans. It’s something Jake does with his son, Landon, and now that Abby is getting older, he started to include her too. He jokingly says it’s for the college fund, but it’s more about spending time and giving them some spare change.
Plus, have you ever seen recycling look so cute?!
