2022 Women in Construction: Emma Kurihara, Bright Power


Emma Kurihara, Senior Project Manager at Bright Power, was spotlighted in NYREJ’s 2022 Women in Construction this week.

What was your greatest professional achievement or most notable project in the last 12 months?
This year, I became a RESNET Home Energy Rating System (HERS) rater. Part of the certification process involved mentored field trainings, where I learned a lot about the verification and testing.

Starting out in the construction business, who or what empowered you?
My passion for sustainability empowered me to work hard and learn as much as I could about the best practices for building sustainably. My manager and fellow team members encouraged me to always ask questions while on site together, which facilitated my learning of the construction industry.
