Spotlight: Freeman Cosby

When you see a big yellow and white (extremely well-cared for) 2020 Kenworth rig, hauling a huge piece of equipment, and driving onto your jobsite, that’ll be Freeman Cosby. Freeman has been hauling equipment at C.A. Murren for 16 years this month, and he is one of the safest drivers on the road. “He’s extremely safety conscious,” says a teammate, “he’s continually thinking at least one step ahead.” Who is Freeman? Freeman is a traveler, a treasure hunter, a protector, a worker, an influencer, an adventurer. He’s a husband to his wife Trenesa, whom he married in 1997, and a [...]

Spotlight: Justin Mossinger

“I was working at a grading company in 2016 and C.A. Murren had a job through the woods. Another guy came over to Murren and told me about it, so I went to talk to the foreman on site. They sent my number to C3, I came and ran some equipment, and…” …and the rest is history, as the saying goes. Today, Justin is one of our top grading foreman, working in the Atlanta area. You won’t see any crew members in a hurry to leave his team. What’s the pull? Justin is a strong leader. He is always concerned [...]

Spotlight: Jared Peoples

If you’ve ever worked with or gotten to know Jared Peoples over the last two years, then you know Jared doesn’t waste words. He says what he intends to say and nothing else. This ability to speak leanly can be intimidating in a world where senseless chatter runs rampant, but we at C.A. Murren find it to be refreshing and genuine to say the least. Jared is a meticulous person who thrives on routine. He likes to keep his area clean because its peaceful. He enjoys playing basketball at the gym, and video games on Saturdays with his long-time buddies [...]

Spotlight: Evan Pope

Evan Pope’s story has been a test of strength. “I was working at Plant Branch in Milledgeville when it was still operational. In 2009, just after my 2-year anniversary, one of our ash hoppers had clogged and had to be opened up. When I did that, all the ash poured out onto the floor…the ash was between 800 and 1000 degrees. It melted my boot when it made contact. While one of my teammates went to get the proper PPE so we could free the air line, the temperature had risen 40 degrees in 10 minutes. By the time I [...]

Spotlight: Andrew Culpepper

It was a hot July Monday in 2016 when Andrew Culpepper arrived at the Grayson office as a Project Manager. At the time we were involved in some residential work in Gwinnett County, and Andrew came in mid-project. It’s not every day that you get to work with someone like Andrew Culpepper. You can always count on Andrew to take on any task with enthusiasm and vigor. He’s a solid team player and has a resilience matched only by his loyalty and commitment. Andrew is the type of person who works incredibly hard, puts his whole self into whatever he [...]

Spotlight: Babar Laghari

Babar Laghari has had a very interesting and successful life so far. He was born in Dadu—a very small town in Pakistan—and raised in Karachi, Pakistan, one of the largest cities in the country. Karachi is where Babar did his initial schooling, along the way mastering not just his first language, Siraeki, but three others as well—English, Sindhi, and Urdu. By 2013 he was headed to the United States (Atlanta, to be exact) to pursue his master’s in building construction at Georgia Tech. Babar and Sana celebrated their marriage in August of 2017, and in 2019 he saw more success [...]

Spotlight: Terry Coffey

Born and raised in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Terry got his first taste of construction after taking a drafting class in school, and he never looked back. Terry has been a big part of the team for 2 years now. His favorite part of the job: “When the project has reached just enough momentum and I can start refining it to make it the best it can be.” Terry has been a leader on some of our largest projects including the Grady Center for Advanced Surgical Services in Atlanta, GA and Elba Liquefaction Project in Savannah, GA. Terry’s best fundamental? #20 Invest [...]

Career Day at Dove Creek Elementary

Freeman and Charlie IV headed out to career day at Dove Creek Elementary this week. The kids had a blast honking the horns on all the equipment. Kids are our future, and we want as many of them to be as crazy about construction as possible! Thanks to the teachers for having us and for everything that they do. We are truly lucky to have teachers who show all of the care, understanding, and patience that they do with our kids.
