GATES Employees McEachern And Petretta Earn Ashe Construction Certificates

GATES is proud to announce that Chris McEachern and Marco Petretta, Project Managers with GATES, have earned the American Society for Healthcare Engineers (ASHE) Healthcare Construction Certificate. The certification program teaches critical information related to construction and renovation projects within the healthcare environment. McEachern has been employed with GATES for more than five years as a project manager and is also LEED accredited. Project Manager Marco Petretta, also LEED accredited, has been employed with GATES for two years.

Healthcare construction is a specialty field within the larger construction industry and requires specialized knowledge in order to build in these sensitive environments. These GATES team members are now certified in constructing within environments where infection control and medical gas systems are standard and knowledge of specific life-safety and risk assessment issues is critical.

GATES, with offices in Florida and the Republic of Panama, is a fully integrated construction, development and real estate company. For more information on GATES, please call (941) 575-0893.
