The NSC offers many benefits, such as thousands of safety resources, free or discounted training classes, safety materials, safety talks and more. Partnering with the NSC shows that we are serious about expanding our safety culture as we continue to experience tremendous growth in the company and industry.

Intern Expo 2019

The Second Annual Intern Expo took place on Thursday, July 18 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the HUB, or Reeves Young training room. The expo is an opportunity for our 19 interns to share their internship experience with both peers and Reeves Young employees. Each intern was stationed at a table along with their presentation board for Reeves Young employees to view the presentation, discuss project(s), and ask questions. This not only allows our interns to reflect on their great accomplishments from the summer, but also serves as a way to assess the overall internship experience for the enhancement of our program.

At Reeves Young, our interns are valuable employees, and we commend them for putting time and hard work into their internships and presentations. After interns were assessed by their colleagues on their content, subject knowledge, communication skills, and creativeness, our three voted winners this year are…

1st Place – Lindsey Adams, Preconstruction

2nd Place – Parker Everson, Marketing

3rd Place – Brendan McCormack, Water Resources

Thank you to our Summer 2019 Interns! We are so incredibly proud of your hard work and accomplishments. If this sounds fun, join us next summer – apply online at

Project Site Spotlight: Hyatt Place Centennial Olympic Park

This commercial project is located in the heart of Downtown Atlanta off Luckie Street. It is within walking distance to Centennial Olympic Park, the Georgia Aquarium, and the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Let’s check out some of the highlights from our visit below:

The Hyatt is going to be an 182,000 SF hotel, offer over 150 rooms on 11 different floors, feature an elevated pool, fitness center, and lobby with full bar & food service, 2,500 SF of meeting space, retail, and provide over 90 parking spaces. While we were there, HVAC systems were being installed, carpet and tile were being laid, furniture was being arranged, cement was being poured, and drywall was going up.

Fun Fact: A fire extinguisher must be located every 3,000 SF in order to comply with safety codes and regulations. (Photo/Emma Toland,

Third Annual Intern Outing

On June 21, 2019, all Reeves Young interns and supervisors were invited to attend this year’s Third Annual Intern Outing at Top Golf, a driving range in Alpharetta, Ga.

Upon arrival, employees were greeted and directed through the lobby onto the second level. There, Reeves Young had reserved seven driving lanes and provided complimentary food and drinks for all who attended. The menu included everything from chicken and ribs to mac n’ cheese and biscuits. Of course, cookies were provided at the end of the buffet line too. It was delicious!

After everyone had eaten, the friendly competitions began. Some people focused on technique while others turned their attention toward the far net for distance practice and played games with the accompanied TV screen.


Although golf looks simple, there are elements of precision and timing that are often overlooked in a swing. Ultimately, the goal of every golfer is to drive distance and accuracy. But, how does one do that? Here are a few things to keep in mind before you head over to the range:

  1. Determine the best grip according to preference
  2. Widen your stance
  3. Practice good posture
  4. Turn your head in the back swing
  5. Keep your left arm straight
  6. Hold your finish

Overall, fun was had by all, lessons were taught to those less inclined to golf, and it was a beautiful day to celebrate our interns and the relationships we have built together. Our annual Intern Outing was another success and we are already looking forward to next year!
