MC Industrial, Inc., an independent McCarthy company, was awarded with a 2017 Construction Industry Best Practice Award by the St. Louis Council of Construction Consumers (SLCCC) on March 6th, 2017 for the Boeing St. Louis Composite Center of Excellence project. Also recognized as a finalist, was MC Industrial’s NRG Powerton DSI & ESP Upgrades project.
The SLCCC presents the Best Practices awards annually to recognize successful implementation on construction projects of one or more of 17 Best Practices such as cost, schedule and quality.
The Boeing St. Louis Composite Center of Excellence is a more than ten-acre manufacturing and paint facility that signifies a growing economy in St. Louis, bringing in jobs and growth to the community. MC Industrial was worked hand-in-hand with Boeing to design and construct the center, self-performing many areas such as the pouring of concrete foundations and steel erection. After a redesign of the job and having record amounts of precipitation for consecutive months, MC Industrial continued to push forward with the schedule and successfully complete the project with the original completion date.
MC Industrial’s NRG Powerton DSI & ESP Upgrades project, awarded in June 2015, exhibited the complex challenges of a large-scale coal fleet modernization job with the power plant being NRG’s largest. The scope of work included installation of two new Trona Dry Sorbent Injection units, PDC building foundations, and associated balance of plant equipment and structures. The significant team performance needed to achieve success on a critical compliance-driven power project, was recognized as a 2017 SLCCC Best Practice Award finalist.
“We are honored to be recognized for the hard work and determination set forth throughout both the Boeing Composite Center of Excellence and NRG Powerton projects,” commented Bob Kohlburn, president of MC Industrial. “These SLCCC Best Practices awards are a testament to our firm’s commitment of being a trusted partner and delivering a best-value approach to each of our projects.”
