I am McHugh - Selton Sampson
Role: Concrete Superintendent

Favorite Project: My favorite project was Water Tower Place, the size and scope was very interesting, plus the fact that we used six tower cranes in its construction.
Most Memorable Project: My most memorable projects, because of their uniqueness, are the Deep Tunnel Project in LaGrange where we lined the tunnels with concrete and the re-facing of the lock walls at Brandon Road Lock and Dam in Joliet.
Most Challenging Project: My most challenging job was Park Tower due to its height, location and size.
Biggest change in the Industry: For me, some of the biggest changes in the industry are the use of GPS systems and other technology; the concrete formwork systems; and the increased focus on safety.
