Max Fedela Project Manager

 Max has been doing some type of construction work since he was old enough to walk. Starting out sweeping the floors every day at his grandfather’s custom cabinet shop when he was only knee high, he quickly gained the knowledge and yearning to be creative every day. Working with his hands runs in the family, with a machinist dad, florist mom, and interior designer sister. His hands-on skills were honed at Penn State learning Historic Preservation and Restoration, which was his profession for over 10 years. Max’s creativeness also caused him to travel all over the country, living in Virginia, Hawaii and Southern California, only to find him returning to his home town in the South Hills of Pittsburgh and living 100 yards from the house he grew up in. He has spent his time building furniture, creating artwork, renovating homes, running art galleries, buying and selling antiques and so much more. Recently finding a place within McQueen Building Company allows him to use his skills to the fullest and create new, amazing spaces for homeowners. When not renovating his own home, Max enjoys waking up early for flea markets and estate sales, spending time with his wife, Stephanie and his beagle, Hula, and making and enjoying proper Tiki cocktails.

Eric Schrader | Procurement & Warehouse Supervisor

 At a young age before I was even able to work for a real company or job I started my own lawn care business. I love going into a job with an open mind and working hands on to being able to see a new outcome and leave the job knowing that when I left it I had made a difference. I had the luxury to see that every time with the fresh cut grass. Also when my dad asked me for a hand on one of his side jobs from doing general repairs to ripping out bathrooms and game rooms to a finished project it was satisfying to see a finished product. With still being under the age of 18 I also was able to achieve the Eagle Scout award in the boys scouts with the eagle scout project of replacing and redoing 13 benches on the local walking trail. While still in high school I was able to gain a job with Lowe's Home Improvement in which I have been with for going on 3 years now, this job gave me the opportunity to move and learn through the multiple departments to better my knowledge of customer service, learning my strengths and weakness, the one on one departments I was placed in. I am excited and looking forward to my career with McQueen Building Company to expand the knowledge in the Construction industry.
