Celebrating 50 Years with Bird

Bird Construction has recently honoured the career of Don Eckstein, whose time at Bird has now spanned five decades. Don joins only one other member in the 50 Year Club, Richard Turchinetz — a past colleague from Winnipeg, who joined the 50 Year Club two years ago in Toronto.

Don commenced his employment with the company in 1957 as a mail clerk and shop drawing reviewer. Two years later, Don moved into the small jobs department where he excelled as he moved through the ranks of the Company. Don has worked in our Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Calgary offices, where he progressed from a Project Manager to Production Manager. He has provided mentorship to countless young employees in the Company including our current President and CEO Tim Talbott. Don has been a major contributor to Bird’s success while demanding perfection and high performance from himself and those he has worked with.

Please join us in congratulating Don and thanking him for a half century of dedication to Bird.
