Name: Lucas Ernst (AKA: Yukon)
Title: Co-Owner, Field Manager
Job(s): Field Management, Mechanical and Electrical Installations, Solar Installations, All the Things
Bio: As one of the “Founding Fathers” of Downstream Construction, Lucas takes deep pride in DSC’s continued growth, evolution and positive changes through the years. The recent transition into renewable energy and sustainable building techniques strike a special chord as an environmentalist, animal lover and outdoorsman.
In the field, Lucas is just as happy getting his hands dirty with the guys as he is coordinating materials, reading through blueprints and chatting with customers to make it the best experience possible for them.
Off the job site Lucas has a very full schedule as well. Spending most of his “free time” loving his new family in any way that he can. With his at-home team by his side, he is constantly developing “lukey-land”, building/maintaining his trail network which provides miles of running, biking and skiing trails to anyone who wants to stop by. Or passionately working on his orchard and taking care of his many animals. And every Sunday, if only for a few minutes, you can find him sitting quietly down by the river, smiling.
