This interview with Bill McDermid, Senior Project Manager for Fraser River Pile and Dredge (FRPD) which is located in New Westminster. He saw a FRPD job posting at British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) for a construction management position, which was the closest position that he was looking for when he went to school. He said that marine construction was appealing to him because it is unique from general construction. Marine construction also offers more opportunity for travel up and down the coast of British Columbia, and working in places more interesting than concrete towers or residential building. The interview is largely about FRPD’s operations.
