PROTO Profiles: Travis Dantinne


Get to know PROTO Construction’s Project Manager, Travis Dantinne!

My name is Travis Dantinne.

I have worked at PROTO since July 2016.

Something you’ll always find on my desk is a lot of papers and folders.

The coolest PROTO project I worked on was a private residence near Allentown.

On a Saturday afternoon you’ll find me out and about.

My most loved tool changes from day to day.

Something I learned from a co-worker is keep your area clean.

PROTO is where I work because I enjoy the unique projects we work on.

I’m currently working on a new residential home project in East Lampeter Township.

It is my job to oversee the planning, design, and construction of a project from beginning to end.
