Jaden Doornink has experienced all sides of the design and construction industry through his education and internships. But with experience in multiple aspects of the business, there was no question he’d return to Somerville, the company that best fits his skills and aspirations.
With two internships, an education at a premier engineering school known nationally for its design program and years of drafting experience under his belt, Jaden has brought his attention to detail and determination to do it right the first time to his role at Somerville. He brings a fresh eye to projects, with his 360-degree view of the industry equipping him with the most efficient solution to any problem and the path that will help the teams in the field do their best work.
Having now participated in the industry from start to finish, that complete perspective gives him an edge as the mechanical drafter who creates the online model and drafts the work of the engineer.
Jaden always was drawn to art and to the history of it. He took advantage of every drafting class his high school had to offer. At the Milwaukee School of Engineering, consistently ranked nationally among the best colleges, he had the opportunity to get his feet wet earlier than most by applying the curriculum to a professional-level project that helped prepare him for the design work he’s currently engaged with.
Jaden is an avid sports fan – playing and watching almost anything – and an outdoorsman who counts hunting, fishing, hiking among his pursuits.
He appreciates applying his talent to a similarly wide array of projects at Somerville, where architects and multiple specialties of engineers to work under the same roof. Jaden appreciates that the open lines of communication allow everyone to work in sync and with more efficient resolution to conflicts and seamless handoffs.
It’s where he always intended to be.
