Share This Post

Each year, the construction industry, guided by the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), dedicates the first week of March to honoring and promoting the role of women in the construction industry. This year’s Women in Construction Week theme, Keys to the Future, celebrates women’s strength and knowledge and their vital role in shaping the construction industry’s future.

In honor of this year’s Women in Construction week, The Concord Group is sitting down with some of our very own women in construction for a special Q&A. Join us for this as we learn about their construction journeys, their roles at Concord, and their insights about being a woman in this industry.

Q&A with Diana Figueredo, Cost Estimator I at The Concord Group

Meet Diana Figueredo, Cost Estimating I at The Concord Group. Today, we sat down with Diana and asked her a few questions about her career in construction.

How did you decide on a career in the construction industry? 
I had a project in high school where I had to design and build the 3D model of a house and loved it.

What is your current role, and what does it entail?
Cost Estimator I. 

What do you like most about your career? 
Constant learning. 

What is the best advice you’ve received during your career? 
“Just ask if there is something you don’t know. Learn from the people with more knowledge.”

What is the biggest challenge you have faced as a woman in construction? 
Not related to being a woman but learning a construction system completely different to what I was used to, in another language.
