Grant fondly recalls; “The day after my last exam I was hired by Genstar Structures as a surveyor, foreman, and estimator. It was “trial by fire” with a steep learning curve. However, I was blessed with great support from Genstar and some very knowledgeable staff who provided excellent training and took a chance on an energetic young man.” At Genstar Grant completed a number of high-rise residential and commercial projects as well as other architectural and structural precast concrete projects in Winnipeg and Ontario. In 1986 Genstar was building an 18-storey high-rise apartment complex for Crystal Construction Ltd.
