UCM Alumni Help Bring Largest Capital Project to Life
McCownGordon Senior Superintendent Freddy Allison and AT Industries Inc. Health and Safety Coordinator Scott Gebken have returned to their alma mater to begin construction of The Crossing — South at Holden, the university’s new mixed-use facility, which will feature a Starbucks, SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza, the University Store and apartments for 325 upper-class students.
When assigned leadership positions on the project, Allison and Gebken saw it as a great opportunity to give back by using the skills they gained at UCM.
"I'm excited to be using my knowledge to help make UCM as safe as possible during the demolition phase of this project," says Gebken. "It's my way of giving back and thanking UCM for everything they’ve given me."
For these alumni, working on The Crossing — South at Holden is exciting, but managing more than 150 on-site tradesmen, coordinating materials and keeping everything on schedule is challenging. They focus on the positives — being outside, facing new tasks everyday and most importantly, working with UCM.
"I feel extremely honored to be a part of this project," says Allison. "I remember touring the library as a student during its construction, and now I'll have the chance to give current students tours of the building I'm actually working on."
By using their skills to support the university, Allison and Gebken are continuing learning to a greater degree.
