3D View of Start of Work at Eaton Expansion

We thought you might enjoy this 3D view of the work that is just starting on the Eaton Badger Drive SW Expansion Project in Waukesha, WI.  The model was created by processing about 600 drone images with 3D Mapping/Modeling software. You can interrupt the spinning model and zoom, pivot, tilt as you like!

She Builds – Lamp Kit Virtual Event

She Builds Chicago provides networking opportunities that bring women together from all aspects of the construction industry—from tradeswomen to owner reps, construction managers and CEO’s, to project managers, designers, and engineers.

On September 17th, She Builds led an online virtual event promoting community, creativity, and the opportunity for women to Build a Brighter Future, with participants getting hands-on with an activity sure to brightened their spirits — making their own steampunk-style lamp.

All proceeds from the lamp kits support women/youth programs in the construction industry in both Illinois and Wisconsin. Berghammer Construction was proud to sponsor lamp kits for our entire female staff to participate.
