Lawrence Group People

Each month we highlight a few of our employees by having them share everything from their personal motto to their favorite architect to what’s on their bucket list.

What do you like to do outside of work (favorite pastime)?
I really enjoy playing disc golf. It’s fun, gets your outdoors, inexpensive to play & no need to make tee times. If you ever want to play, or learn to play, let me know.

What is your personal motto?
Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional… let your inner kid have fun every once in a while.

On My Bucket List
Do a back-country adventure trip across Colorado on an ATV. Second, to celebrate my German heritage, I would love to do a lap of the famed Nurburgring in a Porsche 911.

Favorite Thing About Lawrence Group
First would be the flexibility LG grants its employees. Second would be the people. There is very little turnover in the company, so it’s easier to get to know your team members and establish friendships.

 What are your favorite design details?
I love space planning — it’s like trying to put a puzzle together… one that you aren’t sure how all the pieces go together.

 What do not many people know about you?
I was in theater in high school — an official Thespian. I have the best 21-year-old stepdaughter that I could ask for — people have mistaken us for sisters before! 

On My Bucket List
Visit all 50 states, Canada, Italy, Australia, Spain (travel as much as possible). Own a tiny house and live as minimally as possible — clutter makes me anxious.

Favorite Thing About Lawrence Group
The talented, eclectic, smart group of people I work with.

Andrew Hartnett
Area Facilities Manager
With Lawrence Group since 2011 

What do you like to do outside of work (favorite pastime)?
I love to get out on the boat and fish in tournaments. I also enjoy a nice round of golf.

Personal Motto
Life can be a wild and crazy journey, keep traveling on, and if you get lost, just pull over somewhere and ask for directions.

On My Bucket List
First I would like to put my boat license to use, and skipper a large ship out in the Caribbean. I’d like to swim with the sharks one more time. Purchasing an old muscle car is on the list for sure. I’d like to take a stab at playing the bagpipe.

Favorite Thing About Lawrence Group
How helpful everyone from different departments and backgrounds can be when I have a question or a favor. No matter how busy someone is, I never get an “I’m too busy.”
