APi Construction crew wins well-deserved safety award
"Marv's crew is always conscious of safety and quality out here," said Kiewit's Construction Manager, Eric Naught. "He's been a team player, always willing to do whatever it takes to make the project better without taking shortcuts to save hours."
The crew of eight sheet metal workers planned their work and worked their plan with safety at the forefront. They flew 126 siding panels from the ground to the roof of the structure in three meticulous steps. Keep in mind each panel measured 28' by 3Â½' and weighed 256 pounds.
First, APi's skilled rigging professional lifted a bundle of 10 panels with a crane from the ground to a catwalk circling the structure about 100 feet off the ground.
Second, a two-man crew unpacked the bundle and lifted each panel individually up the final 20 feet with a specialized suctioning system.
Finally once at the top, the remainder of the crew steered each panel into place and secured them to the structure with screws.
APi's siding crew worked tirelessly - for several hundred man-hours - to lift and install the roof to win the Kiewit's Safety Crew of the Month award. The crew was presented a congratulatory banner, photos of the event and treated to a meal of their choice by Kiewit's site management.
Congratulations to APi Construction's Brayton Point crew!
