Check out the #WorkHereGrowHere features that highlight our staff, what they do, and why we love them.
We’re not sure what he’ll win first – an engineering award or an Oscar! Often starring in our company’s internal videos during his first year at Lamp Rynearson, Project Engineer Michael Palizzi has become widely known for his can-do attitude and wearing ties on Thursday. His accomplishments include completing the design of two elementary schools and assisting with a running track at his alma mater, Colorado State University. Having done so much already, what can we expect next? Michael’s ambitions include obtaining his PE license and increasing participation in “Tie Thursday”. This trendsetting engineer is our nominee for “Best Creative and Technical Talent”. Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary, Michael! #WorkHereGrowHere #TieThursday
It’s no surprise Paul Gargarella is proud of the progress he has made in the past year in the role of project designer at Lamp Rynearson. As a “huge fan” of Colorado, Paul enjoys hiking in the mountains and knows how to ascend to great heights! But he doesn’t feel like he needs to climb solo. Paul enjoys the sense of teamwork that he experiences every day in his position. Congratulations on your first anniversary, Paul! #WorkHereGrowHere
A catalyst for excellence, our president – Nancy Pridal – is a builder by nature. Over 20 years at Lamp Rynearson, Nancy has built great projects that improve communities and great teams of bright and talented individuals. These accomplishments come with stories to tell! Although it wasn’t so amusing at the time, Nancy now smiles when she shares the memory of being a young engineer and getting her new truck stuck on a construction site. The contractor wouldn’t tow Nancy out until he took a picture of her standing in the mud by the truck! Keeping her own experiences in mind is how Nancy strikes the right balance between coaching and letting her employees learn to fly. Happy 20-year work anniversary, Nancy! We look forward to soaring into the future on the wings of your leadership! #WorkHereGrowHere
Employees with a competitive spirit keep our team driven. Project Engineer Greg Van Patten falls into this category. He views each day as an opportunity to make a sizable contribution to Lamp Rynearson and keep clients happy. My friends, Greg does not fail to deliver. Being well-organized allows him to cover a lot of ground. In fact, he provided construction observation on four project sites at one time, found office time to complete design work on multiple projects, AND planned a wedding with his wife in the first year of employment. Having made quite the positive impact since he started, we look forward to the efficiency he’ll continue to bring in the years to come! Cheers to your first-year anniversary, Greg! #WorkHereGrowHere
Great bosses and coworkers help us grow. Autumn Schleicher has experienced just that as she works hard to become a more diverse engineer at Lamp Rynearson. Surrounded by industry leading peers, Autumn absorbs a variety of knowledge that feeds her desire to learn. Expanding her knowledge doesn’t only happen within the office walls. By day Autumn is out in the field to survey conditions along a brambling creek. By night Autumn attends company networking events, like Shrimp Bingo, to strengthen relationships with clients. The way she embraces all activities as growth opportunities is truly inspiring! Congrats on your one year anniversary, Autumn! #WorkHereGrowHere

Shortly after, he applied for and received an internship, which turned into a fulltime gig after he graduated! Mainor approaches his work with the mindset of “even the smallest contribution I may make to a project is crucial to its completion”.
