Expanding Job Opportunities for Ironworkers and their Contractors

Just wanted to say that Mark, Michael and Stuart from FMI and Trevor from PWC did an excellent job engaging the classroom in discussion each day, and had a great program format for teaching. The information they brought forward was extremely useful now as I'm sure it will be throughout my career. This was only my 2nd IMPACT course that I have attended, I would like to commend IMPACT on organizing these events for Ironworkers and contractors alike, IMPACT always put on an amazing program, and does a very good job at making these events comfortable and welcoming to attend. I plan to attend more IMPACT events as the information is always very useful and IMPACT does a great job of finding the right instructors for the occasion. I would like to thank everyone at IMPACT for the work they do to set these events up and providing the opportunity to attend these courses.

Regards,

Iron Workers and IMPACT Applaud Safe, World-Class 2015 Projects

03/01/2016

At the 2016 North American Iron Workers/IMPACT Annual Meeting in late February and early March, IMPACT Co-Chairs Eric Dean, general president of the Iron Workers, and Bill Brown, chairman of Ben Hur Construction Co., awarded the IMPACT Project of the Year awards to the top five projects completed in 2015.

The awards are an expansion on the first-ever Project of the Year award presented last year, and now cover five different areas of the ironworking industry: Bridge/Structural; Architectural/Ornamental; Fabrication; Industrial/Rigging/Machinery Moving; and Reinforcing.

The Iron Workers and IMPACT are very proud of the fine work displayed in all of the submissions. It was certainly not an easy task to select the winner of each category, and the panel of independent judges deliberated for many hours before making their decisions.

The deciding panel consisted of Ted Sheppard, vice president of The DuRoss Group; Eric Waterman, former CEO of IMPACT, and Tad Kicielinski, retired general vice president of the Iron Workers and a former regional director of IMPACT.

Taking home the top prizes this year were:

·         Koch Skanska, Inc. and Iron Workers Local 40 (New York) for their work on the World Trade Center Oculus Project in the Bridge/Structural category

·         Enclos Corporation and Iron Workers Local 5 (Washington) for their work on the National Museum of African American History in the Architectural/Ornamental category

·         West Wind Reinforcing and Iron Workers Locals 846 and 847 for their work on the Dupont Ileminte Silos  in the Reinforcing category

·         National Steel City, LLC. and Iron Workers Local 92 (Birmingham, Ala.) for their work on the Gorgas Civil Prime Contract/Pants Leg Project in the Industrial/Rigging/Machinery Moving category

·         Waiward Capital LTD. and Iron Workers Locals 720 (Edmonton, Alberta), 725 (Calgary, Alberta) and 805 (Calgary, Alberta) for their work on the NWR Sturgeon Refinery in the Fabrication category

“Across the board, we saw a serious focus on safety,” said Iron Workers General President Eric Dean. “These projects and project leaders made safety the first and last point of concentration each and every day.”
