In February 2011, Shook’s Larry Mileski, a project superintendent, was presented the Allied Construction Industries (ACI) Safe Employee Award for 2010 during the 12th Annual ACI/OSHA Construction Safety Day. For over five years, Larry has served as project superintendent at the Ford Sharonville facility. His construction crew has removed/replaced over 1.2 million SF of concrete, erected over 30,000 SF of protective barriers, erected several building additions, and removed/replaced numerous pipelines. Under his supervision of more than 131,000 man-hours, there has been no lost time incident reported. His success has stemmed from emphasizing accountability to all of his crew members. He frequently rewards them for completing their work in a safe and productive manner.
