David joined ALL4 in April 2020 after spending one year as a HRSG Field Engineer and Superintendent for Kiewit Power Constructors. During his time at Kiewit, David helped install piping for two HRSG units. Here, he was initially in charge of the welding specification procedures and piping schematics. In addition, in his role as field engineer, he oversaw scheduling and manpower in the field, as well as work pack creation and documentation. Acting as the liaison between the hourly craft unions and the design engineers in the office, he ensured the work was done according to the drawings and on time with the schedule. Eventually, he worked his way up to Superintendent where he oversaw the day to day activities and safety of two Boilermaker crews.
