EnCon United Announces Stresscon Receives Award for DIA project
The ROCIP award was presented to Stresscon based on working nearly 67,000 labor hours without injury, and a (ZERO) Incident and DART rate for the year. Stresscon averaged 35 employees per day on site at DIA. The award was presented to the team for going above and beyond required measures on the site and working in challenging weather conditions including ‐22 degree days. The precast portion of the project was completed ahead of schedule. Certificates and awards were presented to the Stresscon team by Mary Connors, Safety & Industrial Hygiene Specialist II for DIA.
Morgan Lysohir, of Milender White Construction Co., the General Contractor for this project, spoke to the site crew regarding job site safety starting with extreme preplanning and understanding of the project. “Your crew followed the initiated plan accordingly in order to ensure all safety standards were met on this high risk project site. We appreciate the effort you all made to ensure the project was safe, and how hard you all worked,” said Lysohir. The DIA Concourse C project was constructed mere feet from runways, planes, airport personnel, and travelers.
The DIA Concourse C Expansion project is a total precast structure including 565 precast pieces and approximately 71,000 square feet. Stresscon is proud to participate in a collaborative design‐build team approach including Wong Strauch Architects, Richard Weingardt Consultants, Inc., and Milender White Construction Co. The team incorporated post‐tensioned precast moment frames as the primary lateral force resisting system, a unique lateral system in this region.
The gates in Concourse C are scheduled for an August 2014 opening.
