In her spare time, you can find Alexa spending time with her husband Travis, enjoying one of their many hobbies. She enjoys backpacking, reading, playing her cello, playing board games, photography, and playing with her cat Pixel.
Austin Call began learning structural drafting while still in high school. He used drafting as a side job in the evenings and in the summers to pay for his college, where he studied Mechanical Engineering. After a few years of college, however, he decided instead to focus on drafting full time. He worked in the precast industry for two years, before beginning a business doing freelance work.
During his time as a freelancer, Austin gained a wide range of experience with different project disciplines, including residential, architectural and structural, as well as field and shop drawings for structural and architectural precast. He has worked on everything from massive, multi-million dollar steel structures to simple wood house remodels. He worked with GLR on an as-needed basis for a few months before joining the team in an official capacity.
Austin enjoys backpacking and white-water rafting, as well as computer games and writing.
