Sydney has worked in construction for over a decade, apprenticing straight out of high school. She earned her Certified Remodeling Project Manager (CRPM) credentials through the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) in 2014. From Apprentice to Carpenter, her other job positions held include Project Manager and Production Assistant Manager both involving interaction with clients, subcontractors and supplier partners.

Professional Remodeler magazine recognized Sydney amongst their “40 Under 40” when she was 26. She has participated several years in MAGIC (Mentoring A Girl In Construction) Camps at Gwinnett Technical College as keynote speaker to encourage other young women to consider careers in the industry.

She is the daughter of H. Dale Contant (owner of Alair Homes Marietta) and his wife Keely. Shortly after high school, Dale encouraged Sydney to try her hand at the family business. “I most likely would not have chosen this as my career path, if my father had not given me the opportunity,” said Sydney. “I’m glad I took the offer!”

Sydney and her husband, Caio, have a son and live in Acworth. With her passion for design and creating beauty, Sydney enjoys a variety of artistic pursuits. She recently learned how to work on a manually-operated letterpress built in the early 1900’s to create one-of-a-kind wedding invitations for family and friends.
