Hayward Baker Wins AGC St. Louis Keystone Award

Hayward Baker Inc. (HB) is the recipient of the Keystone Award from the Associated General Contractors of America St. Louis.

The award was presented to Hayward Baker in the Specialty Contractor/Subcontractor Project $100,000 to $1 million category for the company’s tie-down anchor work on the Locks 27 Lower Sill Project, located on the Mississippi River near Granite City, Ill.

The award was presented to business development manager Jeffrey R. Hill, P.E., and project manager Marvin G. Iffert of Hayward Baker’s St. Louis area office, and Jay Fowler of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers St. Louis District (the project owner), at AGC’s 2011 Construction Awards Gala held on Nov., 2011 in downtown St. Louis.

The Keystone Award is given to honor the achievements of St. Louis construction firms and their employees in building the facilities that support and enhance the quality of life in Greater St. Louis. A Keystone Award recipient exhibits excellence in providing solutions to unique obstacles and challenges specific to their project. The judges selected winners based on the challenges faced; how the job excelled in safety, project communications, workforce and contractor diversity plus the quality of the construction process; and schedule and budget.

The Locks 27 project included de-tensioning 44 existing rock anchors and installing 46 new rock anchors in the lower cross over sills in the main and auxiliary lock. The anchors were drilled 42 ft into the limestone directly below the 5-foot-thick concrete sill floor and had a design load of 190 kips each.

Commenting on the award Jeffrey Hill said, “Being a Keystone Award Recipient is one of the highest local honors because the Keystone Award is selected through a panel of our peers in the St. Louis Construction industry. Keystone Awards recognize the Project Team for safely completing challenging and difficult construction projects.”

This is the third year in a row that Hayward Baker has won a Keystone Award.
