Hunter Havenor

Engineering Intern

HUNTER@vibrantcy.org

Hunter is pursuing a Degree in Architectural/Engineering & Drafting Technology. His father has owned a plumbing business for as long as he has been alive, and this led to his interest in the systems that make our homes comfortable to live in. Since 6thgrade Hunter has been organizing his Dad’s van. Being a plumbing assistant, he became intimately familiar with working on roofs, crawl spaces, and attics. Hunter has assisted his father with numerous bathroom remodels, mechanical unit installs, water heater replacements, and much more. He has talked to many of his father’s customers and seen many walks of life while working on the job. He grew an appreciation for the customers’ response to a job well done and pride in the quality of his own work. Now that he works for Vibrantcy he enjoys working on plumbing, mechanical, and electrical renovation plans for large buildings like educational facilities, with the same attention to detail but on a grander scale. His appreciation for the computer has grown as it is a powerful tool for creating construction documents.
