Aschinger Electric Teams with IBEW To Complete the New Meramec Valley Branch Library

in Associations/Companies/News

Project is the 17th St. Louis County Library Branch Improvement by Electrical Connection Membership

St. Louis County Library’s new Meramec Valley Branch debuted on May 15, 2019.  It is the 17th branch to be modernized by the Electrical Connection partnership comprised of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and the St. Louis Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).  NECA contractor Aschinger Electric Co. completed the technology-infused library, taking over work from Briner Electric Co. which it acquired in 2018.   The library was designed by Mackey Mitchell Architects and Bond Architects.  Brinkmann Constructors was the construction manager.

The new $5.6 million Meramec Valley Branch located at 1501 San Simeon Way is more than 21,000 square feet and replaces a 2,690-square-foot branch that was the smallest in St. Louis County Library system.  It is infused with the latest technology for research and features a Discovery Zone for children, private study rooms, a quiet reading room, a community meeting room, a business center, a community garden, a walking path and outdoor reading deck.

NECA contractors and IBEW have performed electrical installations on 16 other branches in the St. Louis County Library system including Grant’s View, Weber Road, Jamestown Bluffs, Indian Trails, Rock Road, Samuel Sachs, Cliff Cave, Prairie Commons, Natural Bridge, Oak Bend, Bridgeton Trails, Florissant Valley, Daniel Boone, Grand Glaize, Mid-County and Thornhill branches.  The projects have entailed a wide variety of complexities including electrical, fire alarm, decorative and energy efficient lighting, generators for emergency lighting, and technology improvements for new and renovated branches.

The projects are part of a multi-year capital improvement campaign called Your Library Renewed to improve a total of 19 branches. In 2012, voters approved a $.06 tax increase to fund new facilities and upgrades to existing structures, as well as enhanced library programs and services. More information on all of the library improvements including images can be found at https://www.slcl.org/content/your-library-renewed.

Now celebrating its 107th year of service, Aschinger Electric is a four generation, family-owned electrical and communications contractor serving the commercial, industrial, educational and health care markets.  Learn more at www.aschinger.com

in Associations/News

For the second year in a row, volunteers with the Electrical Connection will be donating skills and services to make electrical improvements to the Greater St. Louis Area Council, Boy Scouts of America’s S Bar F Scout Ranch near Farmington, Mo.   The camp has served generations of scouts throughout eastern Missouri for more than 50 years.

On Saturday, May 18, 2019, about 30 volunteers from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and seven electrical contractor members of the National Electrical Contractors Associations (NECA) will donate services to repair and improve electrical systems.  Many of those helping will be IBEW trade workers who have dedicated countless hours as scoutmasters, like Ken Edgar.  Edgar is a fourth generation IBEW electrician.

“Two of my kids have been in the Boy Scouts and we have thoroughly enjoyed the experience at the S Bar F ranch,” said Edgar.  “We want to make it an even better experience for the next generation of scouts.” Edgar will be joined by his sons, Ken IV, who is also an IBEW electrician and Alex, who is a junior in high school.

Improvements will be made to five different camps on the 5,200-acre site to bring them up to 21st century standards, including:

  • General electrical infrastructure, including fiber optics improvements and better flood lighting;
  • Improving lighting in pavilions and three-sided bunk bed buildings.
  • Upgrading electrical and lighting needs for the Swift Base Camp, where the Boy Scout staff stays;
  • Improving electrical systems to the Healthcare Lodge.

“The Electrical Connection members are setting a great example for our scouts by their service to the community,” said Anthony Fouts, director of camping services for the Boy Scouts.

“Our members are eager to help and will ensure all wiring and installations met the standards of the National Electrical Code,” said Lee Asher, business representative, IBEW Local 1.

Among the NECA contractors that donated service trucks and tools to complete the work were Aschinger Electric Co.; Bell Electrical; RJP Electric, LLC; Sachs Electric Co; Schaeffer Electric, TriStar Electric and Warren County Electric, LLC.

IBEW/NECA unite to form the Electrical Connection, now celebrating its 26th anniversary.

A Decade of Work by Contractors, Community and Collaborators Culminates in National Award for Diversity & Inclusion

in Associations/News

May 21 is World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development 2019

They say it takes a village to raise up a child.  An industry-focused village of builders, suppliers and community partners has been working together for more than 10 years to raise up and increase participation by minority- and women-owned businesses in Missouri’s construction industry. And their efforts are starting to pay off.

According to Steve Lewis, vice president of inclusion for the AGC of Missouri, here are just a few of the results of the decade-long effort:

  • Diverse membership in the AGC of Missouri has risen from miniscule 10 years ago to 14 percent today, with plans to grow total membership by an additional 25 percent over the next two years. Diversity within the AGCMO board of directors’ membership also has grown significantly, with currently five black (non-Hispanic) and 10 female members serving.
  • Becky Spurgeon, president of Interface Construction, a minority- owned business, currently serves as chair-elect and, in January 2020, will become chair of AGCMO’s board of directors.
  • Michael Kennedy, Jr., chief executive officer of KAI Enterprises, also a minority- owned business, is vice chair of AGCMO’s Building Division in 2020.
  • A robust AGCMO Diversity Committee crosses all disciplines within the industry and is currently comprised of 20 members, with 45 percent diverse representation.
  • Four St. Louisans serve on AGC of America’s national Diversity & Inclusion Committee. Steve Lewis is the chapter representative and Frank Wilson, president of BFW Contracting LLC, serves as chair.

The first chapter within the 89-chapter AGC of America to hire a full-time diversity director 10 years ago, the Missouri AGC chapter was recognized in April with the AGC of America national Diversity & Inclusion Excellence Award for being a champion in advancing diversity and fostering a culture of inclusion within its workforce, supply chain and in the communities in which it serves.  The award was presented at the AGCA 2019 national convention in Denver to Lewis; Spurgeon; Wilson; Monica Bailey, director of diversity, McCarthy Building Companies; and Len Toenjes, president, AGCMO.

Wilson also received a national Chairman of the Year Award for his service, leadership and dedication as chair of the AGCA’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee. Other St. Louis-based members serving on the national committee include Bailey; Michael Kennedy, Jr., chief executive officer of KAI Enterprises; and Lewis.

“AGC of Missouri, as one of the first AGC chapters to dedicate time and resources to diverse businesses, has been a leader in advancing diversity and inclusion within the association,” said Brynn Huneke, director, diversity & inclusion, member engagement for AGC of America.  “AGC of America was honored to present them with the 2019 Diversity & Inclusion Excellence Award for an AGC Chapter.”

In addition to great leadership, Lewis believes it’s been the broad range of community partners and programs that has created sustainable and growing diversity in Missouri. The former AGC of St. Louis (now part of AGC of Missouri) participated in the Stempel Plan Mentor-Protégé program in a joint venture with the St. Louis Minority Business Council. Today, AGCMO provides significant financial support and serves on the board of directors of the Regional Union Construction Center (RUCC). In addition, many AGCMO members serve on the advisory boards of companies that participate in the RUCC program. From 2001-14, AGC of St. Louis operated the Construction Careers Center Charter High School that provided an open opportunity for high school students to be introduced to the construction industry. The CCC offered gateways to the construction industry through programs like Ameren’s Skilled Trade Education Program, preparing students for careers in the energy industry.  CCC also participated in the Architectural, Construction and Engineering (ACE) mentoring program whereby many students earned internships with AGC-member companies.

AGCMO also is a member and sponsor of the National Society of Black Engineers and its Pre-College Initiative Program that prepares and introduces students to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) for the careers of today and tomorrow.  Other major community partnering programs included MoDOT’s I-64 Workforce Development Program, the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge project, and the current NGA West project.  AGCMO is also active and a sponsor of the Building Union Diversity (BUD) program. Among others, it sponsors Missouri Women in Trades, providing support for tradeswomen in the industry. AGCMO also is an investor and serves on the board of directors and technical assistance committee of the Contractor Loan Fund, a $10.6 million private equity fund that provides financing for minority- and women-owned businesses. An AGCMO representative also serves as a board member for the St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE) and also regularly participates in MoDOT and MOKAN training symposia. AGCMO is a member of the MoDOT statewide Inclusion Advisory Council and Regional Diversity Council.  AGCMO also serves on the Diversity Committee and Cultural Competency Task Force of the St. Louis Council of Construction Consumers and the Education and Diversity Committee of the St. Louis Construction Cooperative, a labor-management organization.

Lewis wants to thank the members of AGCMO’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee for their tireless efforts that continue today:

Concrete Polishing Council of the American Society of Concrete Contractors Relaunches Tradesman & Craftsman Certifications

in Associations/News

The Concrete Polishing Council (CPC), a specialty council of the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, MO, has relaunched its Tradesman and Craftsman certifications.  The certification programs were begun by the Concrete Polishing Association of America, precursor of the CPC.

A certified Tradesman requires knowledge on the proper procedure to polish concrete but lacks sufficient work experience to qualify as a Craftsman.  Craftsman certification is open to those who have achieved Tradesman certification and have a minimum of 4,500 hours of work experience in surface preparation, grinding, edging, chemical application, honing, polishing and polishing equipment maintenance.  Recertification is necessary every five years and requires successful completion of a written examination.

Those applying for Tradesman certification may purchase the Tradesman Certification Manual, an 86-page booklet covering Safety, Polished Concrete, Grinders/Equipment, Diamond Tooling, Maximum Refinement, Chemicals and Concrete.  The book also includes a Glossary and the CPC Position Statements.  The certification exam is based on the Manual.  Cost is $50 for CPC members and $65 for non-members.  An online review course covering the same information and with sample test questions is available to help technicians prep for the exam.  The review course is $150 for members and $190 for non-members.

The Tradesman examination, also online, is approximately two hours and consists of 50 multiple choice questions.  It requires a score of 70% or better.  CPC members pay $250 to take the exam; $315 for non-members.

Craftsman certification requires a passing grade on the Tradesman exam and 4,500 hours of verified work experience.  Work experience forms for employed workers, self-employed workers, and union laborers are available online.  Craftsman certification is $75 for members and $100 for non-members.

The concrete polishing certification program provides the industry with distinction between skill levels based on knowledge and real-world experience.  Polishing contractors can use the program to provide employees long-term goals toward education, training and mastery.  Owners and general contractors can utilize it to set specifications and determine the best qualified bid list.

The CPC was formed to provide standards, education and a professional network for polishing contractors and others serving in the industry. The primary goals are to furnish training opportunities and certification programs for members and to share information on best practices with the design and construction community.

The American Society of Concrete Contractors is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the capabilities of those who build with concrete, and to providing them a unified voice in the construction industry.  Members include concrete contracting firms, manufacturers, suppliers and others interested in the concrete industry such as architects, specifiers and distributors.  There are approximately 770 member companies in the United States and 15 foreign countries.  For more information, visit www.ascconline.org or call the ASCC office at (866) 788-2722.

Laclede’s Landing Hails Memorial Day Completion of Lucas Ave Project

in Associations/Companies/News

By KERRY SMITH, EDITOR, ST. LOUIS CONSTRUCTION NEWS AND REVIEW MAGAZINE

St. Louis-based Stika Brothers Concrete Contracting, Inc. is the lead contractor for the  Lucas Avenue Project in Laclede’s Landing, a high-impact effort wrapping up this weekend that creates vehicular access to the Landing’s south end and features pedestrian-friendly sidewalks with trees and lighting.

John Clark, president of the Laclede’s Landing Community Improvement District, said the $350,000 infrastructural project creates a new main artery access point to the Landing connecting Lucas Avenue from Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard to Lumiere Boulevard (Third Street). Clark said the newly rebuilt section literally paves the way for the growing amount of residential development there. Advantes Development is converting the former Bi-State Development headquarters at 701 North First Street into Peper Lofts. Advantes Principal Brian Minges has two more Landing structures under contract – the former Hoffman Building (700 North Second) and the Greeley Building (618-624 North Second) – for a mixed-use, residential-retail redevelopment.

“Brian is seeing great success with the Peper Lofts, the Landing’s first-ever multifamily development that is quickly filling up,” said Clark. “With the completion of all the work on the Gateway Arch grounds and museum plus an additional $20 million in recent investments on the Landing with more to come, we anticipate increasing demand for additional residential options from those who want to live in this premier riverfront location.”

The new stretch of Lucas Avenue is anticipated to open this Monday, May 27.
