The past, present, and future success of Hammerquist Casalegno is a direct result of our employees’ skills and passion put forth to fulfill our clients’ expectations on each and every project. We believe the best construction learning environment is in the field with a hands-on, practical approach to training and skill development under the mentorship of experienced professionals. Hammerquist Casalegno recognizes there are numerous options available to people interested in joining the construction trades. One of these options is carpentry, the core trade at the center of any commercial construction project. Of all the construction trades, carpentry is one of the most challenging as it requires one of the broadest skill sets including demolition; structural concrete forming, pouring, and finishing; floor, wall, and roof system framing; wood, composite, and metal siding; roofing; windows and doors; specialties; and finish carpentry. Carpenters construct the backbone, coordinate the inner details, and put many of the finishing touches on commercial building projects. Exceptional carpentry is clearly evident during construction and in the finished product. We believe it does not take great effort to produce mediocre products and service, a common result in our industry. We believe it does take great effort, dedication, and passion to be an exceptional carpenter. This is what we foster at Hammerquist Casalegno, a dedicated and continual effort to hone exceptional employees providing exceptional products and service to our clients and stakeholders our projects.

Recognizing our employees as the key to our continued success, Hammerquist Casalegno remains committed to the development of our employees. The Hammerquist Casalegno Carpenter Apprenticeship Program is a four-year program designed to attract, train, develop, and retain the best carpenters in our area. The program is fully funded by Hammerquist Casalegno, leaving no cost to the employee. The two primary elements to the program involve the core part of the program centered around hands-on learning in the field under guidance and mentorship of our superintendents, foremen, and lead carpenters. A supplemental carpentry textbook is the basis for the classroom instruction and testing portion of the program to deepen and broaden the knowledge base of our craftsmen.
