Shea Homes recently hired Teichert Construction, which employs an all-women crew, to prepare sites for new homes at The Dunes and The Enclave in Monterey County, Calif. Three of the four women taking over the construction site are sisters who were inspired by their father, a carpenter, to join the industry. Once completed, The Dunes will have more than 1,200 home sites and is expected to include a main street promenade, hotels, restaurants, an art walk, shopping, and entertainment, Shea Homes announced in a recent press release.

According to Layne Marceau, Shea Homes’ Northern California President, “We are excited to have more women in the industry and on our job sites and are pleased to be working with others who share that vision.” 

Mary Teichert, the Company’s President today puts it this way, “We are committed to building high performing teams where diversity, equality and opportunity are encouraged. Women represent a huge untapped pool of talent: with women only holding 6% of US construction jobs, there are a lot of women who do not yet see this industry for the amazing job opportunity it is. Working together with visionary customers like Shea Homes, we know we can strengthen an amazing workforce for the future.”
