What’s your name and job function?

Scott Billard, Project Foreman

Can you talk about your building trade background?

After helping family and friends with odd projects for many years, I decided to make carpentry a career.  I attended the carpentry program at NSCC, then found myself happily employed with MRB contracting!

What’s the most satisfying part of your job?

By far the most satisfying part of my job is stepping back to admire the work my teammates and I have done, whether it be a complete house or a small detail.

Favourite tool?

My favourite tool is my Stiletto hammer.  Although the hammer is not used as much as it used to be, it is still very satisfying to sink a 3 1/3″ nail with a few solid strikes.

Hobbies?

When I am not working like a dog I can be found running with my dog. Marathon running is one of my favourite hobbies, which means lots of training between races. I also love playing hockey in the winter and golf in the summer.
