Lucas Crane

My name is Lucas Crane and I just finished my freshman year at Purdue University. I am majoring in Construction Management and earned a spot on the Dean’s list for both semesters. My interest in construction originated from completing my eagle scout project where I worked with a retired construction manager to build a large cabinet for my high school band. I have a full-time internship in Silicon Valley with a large general contracting company named Whiting-Turner as a Project Engineer Intern for the summer. For my internship, I learn about construction by spending time in the office and on the field where I learn one on one with project managers and superintendents. I am also a member of the American Society of Healthcare Engineering where we attend conferences such as the PDC Summit in Phoenix during March while also volunteering in service activities with Habitat for Humanity where we help build houses for those in need.
