Construction manager James Alston has a new project for Lego that is going to be built by a private company, which means the Lego company will need an MBA.
Alston says he wants to start his own construction management firm, and he’s looking for engineers to help him out.
“We’re going to try and be an engineering company and try and make a lot of bricks and stuff that we can use in a lot a projects,” Alston told News4Jax.
“And we’re not going to build a bunch of houses in our backyard.”
Alston’s new firm will help with the design of his project, which will be called Lego Construction Management and Construction.
It will be in the same business as construction companies that Alston works for, such as the New York-based New York Construction and Development Corporation.
The project will be financed by Lego, which says it will use the company’s expertise to develop new bricks.
Alton said he is looking for someone who knows the business side of building, and who can help build out the design.
“I want someone that can build it and can actually build the bricks and put them together and actually work with me,” Alton told News 4Jax on Monday.
“That’s what I want to do.”
Lego is not the first company to use its expertise in building to make money.
The company recently announced plans to sell its bricks in the United States.
Alstrom said that the company doesn’t want to start with a small business that can’t do what it does well.
“But I think that if I could help out someone who had a great experience with building, that’s what we’d be looking for,” Alstrom told News 5Jax at the Lego New York City headquarters.
Alsson told News5Jax he doesn’t think Lego has the expertise to make bricks for the public, but he does think it has the knowledge to build projects that benefit society.
“The Lego brand is synonymous with a high quality product and I think we have that expertise to be able to bring that product to a wider audience,” Alsson said.
Alssons Lego Construction manager, James Alsson, at the New World Brickworks in Brooklyn.
Alson said he’s hoping to get help from Lego’s headquarters in New York and that he’s excited to have an engineer on board.
“You’re not only a great builder, but you also have the knowledge and experience to be a really good engineer and a good manager of people,” Alsson said.
“So, I think you’re going into something that will really benefit society.”
Alsson and his team will work from the New Brooklyn location of the New Manhattan Brickworks, which opened in October.
The Brooklyn site will also be a Lego headquarters in the future.
Alsons Lego project will use some of the companys existing bricks, but Alsions team will also work from a New York location.
Al Sorsons team will help to make the bricks, as well as the designs and plans for the building process.
AlSorsons Lego company is also hiring.
He said he has a few openings and he is considering hiring people from across the country.
“My whole vision is to create a new brick company that’s going back to what it was all about,” Alsors said.
