Four Electrical Connection Member Projects Named Finalists in AGC Keystone Awards



Four Electrical Connection member projects are being saluted for construction excellence in the annual Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Missouri Keystone Awards.  The projects – two apiece by NECA contractors Guarantee Electrical Co. and PayneCrest Electric, Inc. – were named finalists in industrial and building construction categories.  Since 1997, when the AGC Keystone Awards competition was launched, more than 100 NECA contractor projects have been honored.  The prestigious construction awards program salutes projects for safety, proficiency in overcoming challenges and the quality of delivery, including maintaining budget and schedule.

“Each year, as innovation and technology continue to transform the construction industry, the judging of submissions and selection of finalists becomes more demanding.  The challenges presented to our contractors and their ability to successfully meet them is the essence of the Keystone Awards,” said Len Toenjes, AGCMO president.  “The ingenuity and craftsmanship represented by this year’s finalists continue to exemplify the spirit of the Keystone Awards.”

This year, Guarantee’s finalists include its work on The Last Hotel in downtown St. Louis for Fe Equus Development and the Ameren Process Waste Water Treatment facility.  PayneCrest was saluted for its work on the Ameren Labadie Fly Ash facility and the Monsanto/Bayer Greenhouses.

Guarantee and PayneCrest are members of the Electrical Connection, a partnership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and the St. Louis Chapter of the National Electrical Contractor Association (NECA).

Winners of the 2019 Keystone Awards will be announced and celebrated at the AGC’s Construction Awards Gala scheduled for Monday, Nov. 4 at the River City Casino & Hotel in St. Louis.
