I've been in the construction industry almost my whole life. Helping my dad and uncles at a very early age pouring sidewalks, patios, and driveways etc. Commercially I started at Layton Construction in 1997 as a Carpenter/ Finisher Apprentice. In 1998 I received my Journey man Finisher. In 1999 I recevied my leadman postion, and received my ACI certification for a Flatwork Finisher Technition. In 2000 I became a one of the Finisher Foreman at Layton Construction. I was the youngest of seven foreman and ran all the big pours.
I have always been the type of worker that listens, always humble, work hard and always push myself to be the best at what I do. I learned a lot of pouring and finishing techniques from a lot of great guys that have moved on, and thanks to them I know what I know today.

My very first job as a foreman I remember I thought I was going to pour some sidewalks or something easy, but no they told me I was going to Las Vegas to pour 500,000 sq. ft. tilt building for RC Willey. I was kind of nervous, but came out of that job as a rock star!!
Then from there on I've been in charge of many high profile concrete pours on jobs such as Sandy Expo center, Cerro Coper, Rice Stadium, Dana Corporation just to name a few. Basically anything that was dealing with FF and FL number I was in charge of. All the 1,000,000 sq. Ft. building that I done from Free Ports, Sandy One, and even the Olympic Skating Oval (which we poured twice) Lol. Received awards from Layton Construction for not having to fix anything on my floors. Not only that, but I pulled off the biggest concrete pour at Layton Construction history with four pours back to back totaling 320,000 sq. ft in four days. Roughly around 80,000 sq. ft of super flat polished floors a shot.
Now I'm back to Jacobsen Construction to start and leave my legacy. I’ve made a lot of people look good in my past but now it is my time to shine. My goals are to move up to become a general foreman, and one day I will control the whole thing as a concrete superintendent.
I've had and run some of the best concrete crews in Utah. I don't like to brag but I think I am one of or the best concrete machinist in the state of Utah. Don't take my word for it see it for yourself.
