Men from Buckner Villas in Austin, Texas, are bringing their collective engineering and construction experience to the table during "Men’s Coffee" with by Hill & Wilkinson General Contractors, the Richardson-based construction company managing the GreenRidge expansion project. The group meets every other month to examine the latest drawings of the expansion. Many residents also frequently gather at a fourth-floor window to watch the construction in real time.
“Watching the construction and visiting with the guys is the best entertainment in the world,” said 97-year-old Roger Owens, who worked in engineering for 48 years before turning in his license at age 85. “They’re doing it well. They don’t know we’re watching them and judging them.”
