Due to COVID-19, P1 Group was not able to have our typical summer intern program, but we are excited to introduce you to the following students who have joined our Lenexa and Las Vegas offices for the summer. Here’s a little bit about who’s getting some hands-on experience at P1 this summer!
UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS, MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
Nina joins the Las Vegas office where she will be working with Project Engineer Liz Ferguson. “I will be learning as much as possible with Liz, including how to read plans, use Bluebeam, The Link, and so much more,” Nina said. “I am excited to learn all about this field and what it has to offer. The projects are awesome and I am very lucky to learn first-hand from such a great team.” When she’s not at work, Nina loves hiking, visiting the lake, and anything that involves getting to be outside in the sun.
UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI-KANSAS CITY, ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
Camden will be working with Vice President Steve Smith and Senior Estimating Manager Jay Thiesen in the Lenexa office. He will primarily be assisting in the estimation process for the electrical division. “I’m really interested in becoming more familiar with the inner workings of engineer drawings - specifically, how certain guidelines and drawings dictate our approach to bidding the job,” Camden said. He hopes to do some golfing and fishing with family and friends this summer.
UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA, RENO, MECHANICAL ENGINEERING/COMPUTER SCIENCE
Ryan will be helping Estimator Rick Cook in Las Vegas. He’s getting experience doing takeoff on schematics in Enterprise and managing subcontractor files like plans and quotes. “I’m looking forward to learning about MEP contracting and the construction industry as a possible career choice,” Ryan said. “I’m also excited to learn how the knowledge from my college classes can be applied as a working engineer.” He says his favorite part about summer is coming home to see his family and dogs. “My mom is a huge fan of the Las Vegas Aces, so we usually go to a few of their games during summer.”
