What is your current role with the JJW and what does your average day look like?

Currently the Capital Projects Supt. My average day starts with attending a morning kick-off meeting and stretch and flex. I meet with the client to review and confirm the day’s work tasks. I meet with the Pipefitter and Boilermaker Foreman regarding the projects and tasks they will be performing and confirm they were able to obtain work permits, etc. I review foreman work permits, job safety analysis, and associated paperwork for confined space and hot work. I attend meetings with the client to update them on project progress, schedule, and needs associated with any additional work scope. I ensure foreman complete daily site safety reviews of their work site and follow up with any corrective actions that need addressed. I coordinate with the client for the next day’s work scope and daily progress reports, as well as estimate, coordinate, and order materials for upcoming projects.


What do you think separates JJW as a company from other contractors you have worked for?

The greatest difference that separates JJW from other contractors is the combination of Safety and Quality that other contractors do not support to the extent of JJ White, Inc.


What does P66 Wood River Refinery think?

Robert supports Safety 100% of the time, attends all meetings, communicates well with others, efficient at planning work, and is well respected by other crafts in a leadership role at the refinery. – Phillips 66 Coordinator
