Gator Millworks Promotes Lacey Meier to Vice President of Pre-Construction

Gator Millworks is pleased to announce the promotion of Lacey Meier from Project Estimator to Vice President of Pre-Construction.

In this new role, Lacey will be tasked with coordinating and overseeing all estimating and pre-construction efforts for Gator Millworks.

“I am so appreciative for this opportunity to help reshape and drive this company forward. I plan to help structure and implement organization in the pre-construction department in order to provide our clients, whether it be contractors, architects, designers or owners, with clean, organized, accurate and comprehensive proposals. Pre-construction is the first step in all processes of the company and I could not be more honored  to be given the responsibility of leading this department,” says Meier.

Meier has been with Gator Millworks for five and a half years, and during that time she has been involved with projects such as New Orleans East Hospital, Patrick F. Taylor Hall and the IBM mixed-use building in downtown Baton Rouge.

Chad Foster, CEO and President of Gator Millworks says, “After I met with Lacey for her first interview, I knew she was a great fit for our company. Her experience and dedicated service to Gator Millworks over the last five and a half years makes her a great selection for this position. Lacey is truly a one of kind staff member and I’m happy to have her here and look forward to what the future will bring.”

With Meier in this position, Gator Millworks will be able to better assist clients with value engineering, filling in the design gaps for budgeting and helping the visions of designers come to fruition within budget and anticipated timelines.

Meier is certainly making her mark in a male dominated industry. Meier says, “Although the industry has evolved a great deal since I first entered the workforce, and day to day it rarely ever crosses my mind, when I step back and look at the whole picture I’m incredibly proud of the work I’m able to do with Gator Millworks.”

Meier graduated from Louisiana State University in the School of Architecture. She lives in Denham Springs with her husband and daughter.
