Celebrating Women in Construction Week: Honoring the Trailblazers of RollingPlains Construction

At Rolling Plains Construction (RPC), dedication and hard work are not just values but a way of life. As the company celebrated Women in Construction Week (WICWeek) this year, it was an opportunity to spotlight the remarkable contributions of women within the industry and within the RPC family.

To kick off WICWeek 2024, RPC shared a poignant photo captured six years ago, marking the last day at the "Old Shop." In the image were the daughters of RPC Owner Robert Shippy, symbolizing a legacy deeply rooted in family and tradition. Samantha, the eldest daughter, now serves as the Lead Estimator, alongside Skye, another esteemed member of the RPC team. Their journey from playing amidst bags of material to leading estimations at RPC is a testament to the company's ethos of growth and empowerment.

Since the closure of the old shop, RPC has soared to new heights, establishing itself as a dominant force in the fireproofing industry. With the company's 40th anniversary approaching in September, RPC reflects on its journey with pride, recognizing the pivotal role women have played in its success.

At the TSMC project in Arizona, a team of exceptional women embodies RPC's commitment to excellence. From Safety Manager Jaidyn Meyers to Laborer Yohanny Batista, Admin Kelly, and Quality Control Judy Orosco, these individuals exemplify the spirit of perseverance and dedication. Their tireless efforts contribute significantly to one of RPC's largest projects to date, showcasing the invaluable role of women in construction.

Throughout WICWeek, RPC continued to shine the spotlight on its trailblazing women. At a Women in Construction event held at one of its prominent projects in Arizona, Safety Manager Frances Lucero expressed profound gratitude for the team's unwavering commitment. Their dedication not only reflects the values of RPC but also inspires future generations of women in the construction industry.

As RPC looks toward the future, it remains committed to fostering a culture of inclusivity and empowerment. With each passing year, the company reaffirms its dedication to supporting and honoring the women who contribute to its success. As the new shop continues to evolve and innovate, RPC stands poised to embark on the next chapter of its journey, guided by the indomitable spirit of its remarkable women.

In celebration of Women in Construction Week, Rolling Plains Construction pays tribute to the resilience, strength, and invaluable contributions of its female workforce. Their passion and dedication serve as a beacon of inspiration, illuminating the path toward a brighter, more inclusive future for the construction industry as a whole.
