“She understands the intricate details of construction needed to be successful, and in the same moment, never loses sight of the big-picture purpose of her projects. She is known for her dedication to excellence, strong work ethic and being an advocate for her clients,” said Fred Wenger, sales and marketing specialist for Gilbane.

Collins is involved with the renovation work at Potawatomi Casino | Hotel, which is taking place while the building remains fully occupied, and the Milwaukee City Hall Foundation restoration project that included renovations in a historic, occupied building in downtown Milwaukee.

“Mary is passionate about mentoring the next generation of builders and positively impacting the local community where she lives and works. For the past several years she has served as mentor for the ACE Mentor Program of Wisconsin, whose primary goal is to build a larger, more diverse and better-prepared workforce,” said Wenger.
