AIKEN, S.C. (March 4, 2019) – The Savannah River Site’s liquid waste contractor Savannah River Remediation (SRR) safely and effectively executes its mission by employing a diverse workforce, including women in construction.
SRR is recognizing its female construction workforce March 3-9, National Women in Construction Week.
Working in a male-dominated field presents unique challenges to women working in construction. Persevering through difficult tasks and taking advantage of opportunities is SRR Construction Operations Manager Sarah McCall’s strategy for success.
“I started as a Subcontract Technical Representative for Saltstone Disposal Unit 6 and from there, I’ve worked in positions that have led me to manage construction operations in H Tank Farm. I have found women that succeed in construction are ones who embrace obstacles and work hard,” McCall said.
SRR is the liquid waste contractor at the Savannah River Site for the U.S. Department of Energy. SRR is composed of a team of companies led by AECOM with partners Bechtel National, CH2M, and BWX Technologies. Critical subcontractors for the contract are Orano, Atkins, and AECOM N&E Technical Services.
