New Director of Masonry

Donnie Lambert joined the Fetters team in March as Director of Masonry. I finally managed to snag him for 5 minutes to take a photo! Donnie has been a mason since 1990 and has always enjoyed working with his hands. You will see him on the jobsites most of the time and helping bring in and retain great employees. For fun, Donnie loves taking spur of the moment trips and canoeing and hiking with his family. If he isn’t here, he’s working on projects around the house. Take a moment to welcome him to our team and let him know we are glad to have him with us!

Lindsey Joins as Assistant Project Manager

We are pleased to welcome Lindsey Greathouse to the Fetters team. She is from a small town west of Nashville, TN. She graduated this spring from Miami University of Ohio with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Her experience at Primus Builders Inc. as a Mechanical Design Intern for one summer and a Project Management intern for the next has helped lead her to her position as Assistant Project Manager with Fetters. Lindsey also spent 5 weeks in Arizona with Primus learning the trades in the field. Her and her fiancé Jon love spending time with their pups and munching down on some good food! We are very happy to have Lindsey on the team with us!

Fetters Olympic Games

The team at Fetters Construction held their first annual Olympic Games on August 17. The Olympics took place at the Fetters office/yard. Three teams combined of Superintendents, Shop and Office were created to compete in 9 various events, including hanging a door and scanning a document. Each event was aimed to highlight individual’s skillset that helps make Fetters Construction successful! Plenty of friendly banter was had in the weeks prior to the games, making seeing other team’s members more interesting during the day to day work week. Each event was timed and scored, with ways to lose points possible. The very last event utilized every team member and was the most competitive event! The teams attempted to drop a coin from the forks of a lull onto a target to gain points. Out of the three teams, TEAM AUSTIN (a team without the actual Austin), took the overall win of the 2018 Olympics. A trophy was crafted by members of the Fetters team and placed in the front office, proudly displaying the name of the winning team! With suggestions/enjoyments rolling in from participants, Fetters Construction’s Culture Team will be preparing for next year’s games.
