Amanda Clappsy-Koval is a natural leader.

When Amanda enters your venue, you will know it.

She has the invaluable knack for commanding your attention, your respect and your admiration for her style. The term ‘style’ is not often conjured within the context of the construction industry. However, as you consider your colleagues and comrades in your everyday battles in building, everyone has a distinct style which sets them apart. Amanda is no exception and has proven her exuberant style promotes successful projects and motivates her teams in kind.

Amanda’s hands-on approach with all project participants puts her at the epicenter of collaboration and truly makes her a great manager and not merely a witness to your typical construction project. Attend one of Amanda’s progress meetings and you will instantly understand her unique method is anything but typical.

In her 7 years with Holt Construction Corp., Amanda has honed her ability to convey her vision of the completed project to everyone involved. Her concise direction by sharing a vivid description of expectations inspires clients and vendors alike in the common goal of jobsite harmony and efficiency.  Amanda has been in complete control of 13 successful projects totaling more than $50million and logging more than 15,000 hours during her tenure. She has brought to life an array of interesting work such as a high-end restaurant on the Hudson River, substation deluge in the heart of New York City, world class lounge for a major international airline and a private, professional-quality indoor hockey arena. A veritable smorgasbord of project types have given Amanda the creative license to solve a range of issues most have not come across. The key to her command of those projects was in the way she embraced those issues as opportunities to grow her knowledge rather than as impediments to the building process.

Always up for a challenge, Amanda recently completed a milestone project in our newest market of Atlantic City, NJ. Scores nightclub in the Taj Mahal Casino was an amazing coordination of multiple vendors and subcontractors that were new to Holt Construction Corp. Her mastery of communication skills provided the entire team with the trust required to work together and fulfill the vision of her client which is the primary core value for our business.

Separate and just as interesting as Amanda’s industry exploits is her globetrotting hobby of visiting Europe with family and friends. Italy will never be the same. Additional congratulations are in order for Amanda’s recent personal milestone by her marriage to Eric in the past year.  We wish her all the best in both her personal and work place endeavors and we all look forward to supporting her style in building bigger and better!
