Always a Better Plan



The Woman & The Project - Tricia Muellenbach

As part of Women in Construction week, our team is spotlighting the women of Excel and their remarkable work on our projects.

Today we are spotlighting Tricia Muellenbach, our Education Market Manager, and her work on the Rib Lake School District Facilities Assessment and Educational Space Analysis.

As an Education Market Manager, Tricia's role is to guide the District through the facility planning process with a strong emphasis on communications and engagement of students, staff, families, and the community. The goal of the project is to design an improvement plan that gives the students, staff, and community as much as possible in the most cost-effective way.

Tricia is currently working with our team of architects and engineers to fully assess the existing conditions of the Rib Lake School District buildings and sites as well as analyzing the space needs for teaching and learning. Parallel to this work, she is also working with the District to understand their communication techniques and helping them develop improvement strategies.

Thoughts from Tricia:

"I love learning about each new school district I work with. I spend time getting to know their staff, their community, and the strategic direction of the district to ensure their spaces fit their needs today and long into the future.

Every facilities assessment has challenges, but that’s the fun part. I enjoy how engaged our entire team gets in solving the issues that exist within sometimes very “worn” spaces. Districts don’t often have unlimited budgets to work with so it’s an art to create a plan that fits each community’s support/investment threshold."
