A wealth of Useful Knowledge.

John Haelen is an absolute construction savant.

During his 28 year tenure with Holt Construction Corp. he has somehow aligned his brain to construct an entire project by simply turning the pages in a set of drawings. He can see the components of a building joining together and compute the cost virtually on-the-fly using the historical pricing data retained in his mind.

As Senior Estimator John has also found a way to be one of the nicest, most jovial people one could ever hope to meet while dealing with decades of ultra-demanding deadlines and myriad personalities in the construction industry. He is a ‘straight shooter’ in all aspects and because of his deep knowledge and humility has become the go-to person whenever a tough solution is needed.

Sometimes a thankless job, John is responsible for keeping our company….our ‘family’ busy and growing and somehow takes much of that pressure off of others all with a smile and a laugh. He is revered by mentors and protégés alike and will always find time to lend a hand at work and in life.

John Haelen is a driven and passionate workhorse and guru of numbers however, most importantly for his colleagues at Holt, the epitome of a friend.
