Alaska Interstate Construction LLC (AIC) said April 4 that Frank Chandler has joined the company as chief estimator.
Chandler brings 35 years of professional experience in highway, airport, waterline, sewerline, subdivision and building construction to bear in bidding and managing AICís civil development projects.
Chandler was born in Oklahoma and raised in California. Before moving to Alaska 35 years ago, he majored in Literature and Survey Technology and spent his first dozen years in the state as a surveyor before moving into construction management.
His mathematical background has provided a sound technical basis for estimating and bidding, as well as for controlling projects, AIC said.
