WHO WE ARE. WHAT WE DO. HOW WE WORK.
Get to know PROTO Construction’s Field Superintendent, Sean Shover!
My name is Sean Shover.
I have worked at PROTO since December 2015.
Something you’ll always find in my truck is a phone charger.
My favorite lunch is the Dagwood from Pita Pit.
The coolest PROTO project I worked on was our home office on West James Street and the current project I’m on now which is a private residence in Lancaster.
On a Saturday afternoon you’ll find me in the pool with my kiddos.
My most important tool is my tape measure and a construction calculator.
Something useful I learned from my parents is the power of positivity.
PROTO is where I work because TONO Group is unlike any design-build company around and I want to be a part of it—and I believe in Hunter.
I’m currently working on an extremely custom-built private residence in Lancaster.
Q&A with Sean
Q: What’s the most important thing you’ve learned in your 13 years of experience?
A: To always give your best and trust your decisions.
Q: How are you known to the PROTO team?
A: I would think I’m known for my positive attitude (most days!) and being punctual.
Q: What’s your construction background?
A: I started framing houses at age nineteen before joining a local construction company and worked there for nine years. That job provided me with a great foundation for many of the things I know today. After accepting another job at a different construction company, I met Hunter and the rest is history!
Q: What has working at PROTO taught you?
A: To remain flexible and be open to new ideas.
Q: While on the job, I can most often be found/heard/seen?
A: Working with all of the trades to be sure we are putting out a high quality project.
Q: What hobbies do you have? How do you spend time outside of work?
A: My hobbies are hanging out with my kids, swimming, and weekly date nights with my wife Jessie.
Q: What’s an achievement (personal or professional) that makes you proud?
A: Being a good father and husband.
Q: If you could pass on one bit of knowledge (#protoscollegeofknowledge) to someone who might not respect or understand the work you do, what would you tell them?
A: The success of every job comes down to the people who work on it. I’ve found that relationships and the way you treat others have a huge effect on the outcome on the overall project and what people or other workers are willing to do for you and the company. Treating my sub-contractors well has kept them willing to go the extra mile for me.
