Elevate Construction IST LLC exists to improve the lives of all construction workers and managers in all field positions everywhere. By scaling up excellence through podcasts, blogs, videos, in-person consulting, online and in-person training, in addition to large scale boot camps and events, Elevate Construction will provide needed training to a new generation of workers, foremen, field engineers, and superintendents.
Training that creates a strategic advantage. Training that adds lasting value within teams and on-site. Training that prevents failed projects, crash landings, poorly run projects, unsafe conditions, and poor team health.
Our mission: To double the efficiency of construction by training the best lead builders the industry has seen before.
Jason Schroeder began work in construction at the age of 13. After testing out of high school early, he started working for Hensel Phelps as a Cement Mason in California. After 6 months he received an opportunity to work as a Rodman, then Field Engineer, and then Lead Field Engineer. Then, an opportunity arose to train field engineers for 7 years across the country.
During that time, he was able to create online training for field engineers, develop a website and survey software, and design and implement boot camps that completely changed the way training is done for field positions. Throughout his career working from FE Trainer, to Superintendent, Project Superintendent, General Superintendent, Field Operations Director, and Project Director, Jason has revolutionized field training for Field Engineers, Project Engineers, and Superintendents. In August of 2020, the decision was made to scale this training throughout the nation through Elevate Construction IST LLC. IST stands for Insights, Solutions, and Training.
