#Duckumentary - Brad Sylvester

Today we speak with Masonry Foreman, Brad Sylvester!

What did you do before your time at EDA?

After high school, I joined the air-force. I was in the 33rd Civil Engineers Masonry Squadron.

What brought you to the construction industry?

My Grandfather did construction and I helped him out from time to time. That’s what got me into construction.

Can you briefly explain what you do at EDA?

I provide daily tasks, providing job information such as heights and wall length’s etc.

What are some things that most people don't know about you

One thing that most don’t know about me is that I broke my neck in 2011 and became a video gamer while I was laid up.

If you weren’t in the construction industry, where would you be today?

If I wasn’t in construction, I would most likely be working with the United States Post Office. Both of my parents worked at the post office, and they always wanted me to work with them. So, that’s most likely where I would be if I wasn’t in construction.

If you could work in any other trade or department here at EDA, where would you be?

If I could work in any other trade or department at EDA, I would try metal fabrication. It always seemed interesting to me.

What is the biggest challenge you've faced in work? How did you overcome it?

The biggest challenge I’ve face in work is my color blindness. It is my biggest challenge and I deal with it daily.

What has been the best part about your experience working with EDA?

My time with EDA has been wonderful. The environment here is like no other place I’ve worked before.

What is your favorite EDA value, and why?

I always look to the company’s promise of being successful together. Every time we lift something as a group or move something out of the way with each other’s help, I’m sure to end it with “successful together” to remind the crew of that.
