Dara Colleary

Who, living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with the most? And why?
Michael Jordan, because he was the best at what he did and was driven.

What is your favorite project you worked on and why?
Brattle Street Mormon Church – Fire Reconstruction.

This was the oldest and one of the most important churches in the Mormon faith. I appreciated the care and concern shown by the members of the congregation in rebuilding the church. There were a limited amount of existing records to work from in order to replicate some of the original details. That was a fun challenge to overcome.

How did you get into construction?
Many relatives including uncles and cousins are all civil engineers. I received a BS in Civil/Structural Engineering and eventually decided that I wanted to be closer to the work actually being installed.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Perhaps “crazy” is not necessarily the correct word but one thing I did that I will always remember was being locked in a slave-holding dungeon with the lights off at the Cape Coast Castle in Ghana. We were made to sit on the ground and feel markings on the floor where the slaves tried to carve markings in the ground before being shipped to America.  There are very few words that could accurately describe how I felt. The thought of the atrocities that were committed was foreign to anything we have seen or endured in our life. The entire trip helped us to be more grateful for what we have and made us more aware of how many people in this world need help.
