“Fresh out of school with a degree in architecture, I came to IBG knowing only the basics of design and construction. It was a little overwhelming at first, learning how everything works. But I slowly gained confidence in what I was doing, and one day everything just clicked. From then on, my career took off rapidly! Suddenly I was learning curtainwalls of all shapes and sizes, panel systems, thermal drawings, part design, presentation style, leading drawing sets, improving the use of Revit and the list goes on. BIM has been a huge part of this process. At IBG, I learn something every day, whether it’s a new system, time management, or the confidence in saying no to a detail that doesn’t work. I never would have guessed back in 2013, how successful this job makes me feel. The effort put in is all worth it when you see the finished building in person and say, ‘I did that!’”

IBG takes great care of their employees, from our excellent benefits and team building outings to our company picnics. At IBG you’re not a number, you’re a member of a team.

During my 15 years here, I’ve gained tremendous knowledge working on projects of increasing size and complexity and enjoyed seeing my contribution to the final product.
