Women in Construction Week: Emily Ballweg

Emily Ballweg, Project Engineer

Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Integrated Procedural Platform

What advice would you give to someone starting out?
Ask a lot of questions and don’t be afraid to jump right into something you have never done before. It’s the best way to learn!

What is your favorite part of your career?
Every day is different and challenging. I constantly feel like I am learning and growing in my career.

What are you currently working on?
I am currently the MEP engineer on the Integrated Procedure Platform at Froedtert Hospital. This will be a new, consolidated surgical/interventional space for the hospital along with a new 4thfloor addition above their West Clinics building.

What do you see as the future for construction?
I see construction becoming a lot more diverse, and a lot safer/leaner with new technology.
