Since 1998, Roger Prewitt has worked as a Superintendent for Shiel Sexton. His first project for the company was the two-phase new construction of Anthem Insurance’s corporate headquarters building on the south side of downtown Indianapolis. He was then promoted in 1999 to General Superintendent and spent the next 20 years working for high-profile clients such as FedEx, Butler University, Eli Lilly & Company, and the Phoenix Theatre.
One of Roger’s fondest memories was overseeing the construction of the picturesque Latter-Day Saints Temple in Carmel, IN, the first Temple for the church ever built in Indiana. This expansive project called for the finest materials available including imported stones and custom window fixtures. In order to assure the highest quality of materials, Roger was able to venture abroad to Turkey for exterior stones, China for interior stones, and Mexico for window fixtures. He selected the Temple’s building material and watched the manufacturing process in the foreign facilities. The imported material took about a year to arrive on the job site.
Roger has always loved traveling. The construction industry has given him many opportunities to experience and explore new regions, both in the United States and internationally. This adventurous spirit extends into his spare time – Roger loves to go camping and take family vacations in his motorhome
As he and his family travel to Pocatello, Utah, for his retirement, Roger will continue utilize his construction skills by volunteering as Quality Control Manager for the construction of the 50,000 SF Pocatello Idaho Temple.
We wish Roger the best of luck and thank him for his years of service at Shiel Sexton!
