Our Industrial team has spent many months working for Turner Construction at the MIT Nano building, where we’re applying high performance epoxy coatings throughout the “Clean Rooms” at the new state-of-the-art facility. These coatings are extremely durable and necessary to maintain the clean room atmosphere.

The Clean Room section of the building includes two pristine, particle-free environments — each two stories tall and optimized for energy, airflow, and future flexibility — for the design and fabrication of micro- and nanoscale structures.

Pleasure to be working for Turner Construction at 50 Liberty in the Seaport. Our crew is making amazing progress painting throughout this new luxury building on Fan Pier D. All the building's condos are sold out and residents are expected to move in beginning in early 2018.

Starting in the garage and working our way up the building, Team Soep has handled line striping, painting of hallways and other common areas, as well as the painting of each and every condo unit.

How long have you worked at Soep?
12 years

What do you feel is unique about working at Soep?
The family atmosphere, the positive vibes, and the belief that we have in one another to accomplish our goals.

How is your role critical to the strategic vision and success of Soep?
It is vital that Soep has the highest skilled, most knowledgeable, and confident team members working on our projects. One of my core responsibilities is directing talent and man power to our jobs; if we don't have the best workers assigned to the appropriate projects then I am not doing my job.

What is the most satisfying aspect of your job?
What I find most satisfying about my job is finding solutions for the challenges we face, both on a project-by-project basis and in how we build the company for the future.

When I’m not at work, you’ll find me…
When I’m not at work during summer I’m definitely on a golf course. During winter I’m either in a hockey rink or on a mountain skiing. No matter the season I’m always with my family.

How long have you worked at Soep?
17 years

How is your role critical to the strategic vision and success of Soep?
I provide experience-based and very detailed estimates for both our Painting Corp and our Specialty Services Group. I also support and mentor our more junior estimators.

What is the most satisfying aspect of your job?
When a well-executed plan comes together. I take great pleasure in turning a set of drawings into an estimate that helps us win a job. From there we turn it over to project management where they excel at delivering quality results using the most efficient methods possible.

Finish the sentence.
When I’m not at work, you’ll find me… in motion with my two sons – maintaining my house, street cycling, mountain biking, motorcycling, kayaking, at the range, or lifting weights.

Teamwork, it is important that we all work well together to the get job done. Everyone has an important job that helps us get to our goal.
