LAYTON, Utah – April 16, 2019 – PRLog — Staker Parson Materials & Construction, A CRH Company, attended Weber State University for the third annual Design and Build Day & Internship Fair. The event took place at the Davis Campus in Layton, with over 500 students in attendance, and sponsored by various industry leaders. The event gave students the chance to talk to industry professionals about their careers, as well as the chance to experience what they do first-hand.
The Staker Parson team set up three interactive exhibits the students could participate in. The first was a simulator, that allowed the students to operate an excavator. The second was to work with Quality Control Technicians in a lab, performing various tests on aggregates and concrete. The third was an activity that allowed students to operate a mini excavator, moving a ball from the top of a traffic cone to a five-gallon bucket. Staker Parson also supplied concrete for the Hughes Construction exhibit, that allowed students to pour concrete from a mixer truck to a form, then use hand-trowels to finish. Staker Parson Materials & Construction’s dedication to Weber State University is a bond that is cherished and constant. From the conception of the Parson Construction Management Program to the support for Weber State’s Athletic Department to the Parson Family Scholarship, Staker Parson Materials & Construction highly values education and promotes growth for new employees and existing ones.
