Civic + Transit

 

To get from A to Z, you need DI.

Paving the way for remarkable community connections.

What do a bridge, streetcar, bus, and station have in common? Their purpose is to connect: to bring parents home from work, to take children to school, visit a new city experience, or bring in friends for the holidays. Our civic and transit systems are a catalyst for fostering lifelong memories. We’re drawn to transform these elements of everyday commuter life and make them feel like you’re seeing them for the first time. It’s not just a bus, shelter, or a sign: they’re opportunities to bridge gaps, experience a story, connect communities, and infuse fun into functional.

One of DI’s fearless leaders, Vice President of Estimating and Purchasing, Mike Trio builds the overall caliber of the organization, overseeing and driving the business strategy for DI and its employees. He leads strategy and development for both project estimating and material procurement.

Mike’s career began in manufacturing – his degree is in metal fabrication – and moved to installation and then to estimating. He can claim more than 35 years experience, 18 of those with DI, though you’ll never hear him brag about it.

With every project at DI coming across his desk at some point, he claims no favorites, adding they all offer something different than the previous. Mike most values DI’s culture that allows every employee a voice on the project, ensuring the entire team strives for excellence in every project, for every client.

A family man, Mike’s time is spent with his wife, three children and five grandchildren, as well as the family dog who waits at the front door for him to get home every evening. He’s also a devoted outdoorsman, spending time hiking, gardening, fishing and hunting.
