Interview with xiaoli: Q&A

Question: Why did you choose your profession?

I remember when I was six years old, there was a new 20-story hybrid (half office and half hotel) building which was beginning construction just by my home. I watched the construction start from scratch to completion.  When the construction was done, there was a small blue pyramid on the top of the building, which I could see from my home’s window. I think from a young age, I felt the construction process was very interesting. Even now, when I come back from Shanghai and see that small blue pyramid on the top of that building, I still can remember the feeling from the first time I saw it when I was young.

Starting at that time, I really liked construction. So, when I had the college entrance test, the construction management was my major choice.

After I graduated and finished my first construction project in China, I saw the building which I built and fully recalled the happiness and surprise when I saw that small blue pyramid. This is the origin of my profession.

Question: What do you like most about working at KBDG?

It’s KBDG’s mission: Building our Clients’ Success One Project at a Time! Working with my colleagues and with my daily assignments, we are exercising this slogan everyday.

Question: What is your proudest moment at KBDG?

My proudest moments are when we win jobs in a competitive bid. 

Question: What do you find the most challenging at KBDG?

The same as what I like most about KBDG, to fulfill the company’s mission: Building our Client’s Success One Project at a Time! That means we need to put in the extra working time and comprehensive thought in one project from the bidding process, procurement, construction process, and close out. It can be stressful, but I really enjoy this.

Question: How has KBDG helped you in your career development?

I started in Pre-con, and now I’m working in the construction department. I think KBDG’s philosophy is learning from the progress and being open minded. Also, the company provides plenty of online learning resources to help me grow.

There are so many great people at KBDG that teach and help me not only professionally, but also in my daily life.

Question: What do you do when you’re not at work? Tell us about any activities or hobbies you enjoy.

When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, watching movies, running and playing golf.
