Van Ahn



I have been building and remodeling in the Twin Cities since 1999. I began my construction career when I was in college, obtaining a degree from the University of Iowa, where I worked for a commercial and residential builder as a carpenter. After a few years as a professional in corporate human resources, working at 250+ employee sized companies, I realized I wanted to get back into the world of construction on a permanent basis. I was recruited by Aequo Builders in May of 2014 to help run the Gladstone Missouri, Apartments project. I have been here ever since.

At Aequo, I am responsible for many tasks. My assignments include contracts, insurances, information systems, finance (math nerd work that I truly like) job costing/tracking, estimating and working with people both internally and externally. What I respect about this company is that Aequo has always put others first. From the client, to the sub-contractor and the employee, that is why I remain here today and am proud to be a part of this team.

In my free time you can find me on my road bike, near some body of water, volunteering, or with friends and family.
