Two KBS project teams were recently recognized for setting high standards in quality and safety during the third quarter of 2018.
The Heronview project team was received the Safety Award for their unparalleled cooperation with the Safety Department on weekly inspections and the immediate correction of the very limited number of violations found warrants the recognition.
The Heronview team includes: Chris Baber, project engineer; Jess Maffei, carpenter; April Shumate, project assistant; Josh Nay, project manager and Pat Cosgrove and Jackson Spivey, superintendents. The project is a four-story, 120,000-square-foot affordable workforce housing development with 96 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments units in Sterling, Va.
“The team went above and beyond in multiple areas of running a safe jobsite. Placement, inspection and accessibility of firefighting equipment since the project began had already set them apart. When coupled with their excellent temporary lighting measures taken, exceptional housekeeping and their elevated slab perimeter protective efforts, the team was very deserving of this recognition,” said Mark Lambert, corporate safety director.
For showing outstanding achievement in quality measures, the Stone Springs Apartments team was given the Quality Award. The team consists of Joe Hirschmann, superintendent; Allen Cratsenberg, assistant superintendent; Josh Nay, project manager; Chris Baber, project engineer; and April Shumate, project assistant.
“The Stone Springs Apartment project team has done an outstanding job in both QA and QC,” said Matt Kamstra, corporate quality director. “The team has taken great pride in preconstruction meetings, mock-ups, first installation meetings and manufacturer involvement. The team has been quick to respond to QC items and design questions, while also working closely with our subcontractors to provide additional QC support during installation.”
Stone Springs is a 203,839-square-foot multi-residential development with two apartment buildings totaling 128 units of affordable workforce housing in Dulles.
