Meet the Team: Intern Addition

July 22, 2019

We have another summer intern that we’d like to introduce! Shawn Hatcher is working with our Mechanical Engineering team this summer. This is actually his second internship with CDFL and we are excited to have him back for the summer. Shawn is from Olive Branch, Mississippi and attends Mississippi State University where he will be a senior this fall.

What are you doing at CDFL this summer?
I did a short three-week internship during my last Christmas break where I got my feet wet with Revit, calculations for A/C loads, and site visits for various projects during different stages of construction. Since this is my second internship with CDFL, and I’ve been here longer, I have been tasked with more of a workload. A bulk of my work this summer consists of designing ductwork and piping systems for projects through Revit. Also, I run preliminary calculations and help with the other engineers in any possible way.

Where are you going after you finish your internship?
After I finish up my time this summer, I will be going back to Mississippi State University where I will start my senior year studying Mechanical Engineering.

What do you spend the most time doing outside of work?
The majority of my time away from work is spent being outside, but more specifically, that time is devoted to my unhealthy fishing addiction.

What is the best thing about working at CDFL?
Because of having the internship status, I do not have the luxury of having every other Friday off, but if given the privilege I would choose it. Outside of having the intern status, I will use a quote to describe my favorite quality of CDFL “It’s the people that make the place.”

What was the last movie you saw?
The last movie I saw was Toy Story 4, and I was not impressed as I was hoping.
