Employee Spotlight: Anthony Grgas 

Employee of the Month
April, 08, 2016 at 21:00

Anthony Grges was recently awarded HEA's Employee of the Month award! Here's a quick Q/A with him:

If you could vacation anywhere on the planet, where would you go?
If it's someplace I've never been before, it would be Iceland. If it's someplace I've been to before and would like to go again....it would be New Zealand.

What is something about you that would surprise people?
Outside of work...I am always looking to make something new. I've done some iPhone programming, made an LED candle that flickers when you blow on it, and now I'm looking into building a cheap & smart greenhouse (a small greenhouse) to grow my veggies during the winter...my wife calls me a busy little squirrel.

Describe your perfect Saturday?
Good breakfast, nice run (tennis/soccer), yard work, hobby time, making dinner, and cap everything off with a good show or movie.

What is something you would like to learn to do?
Learn another language.

What do you like best about working at HEA?
The communication. A construction project is like a big game of "telephone;" messages morph as they are passed around. With successful and seamless turnover as our primary goal, we (commissioning agents) should really vet information and make sure it's conveyed in an emotive fashion with the right tone/urgency to right person.
