For the fourth quarter of 2019, KBS recognized two project teams for displaying excellence in quality and safety standards.
The Cosby Village team was given the Excellence in Safety award. The team includes: Chris Baber, project engineer; Jeff Marshall, superintendent; Daniel Martin, assistant superintendent; Josh Nay, project manager; and Faith Williams, project assistant.
“Perception is everything and the Cosby team is maintaining an impeccably clean multi-family project,” said Mark Lambert, corporate safety director. “Housekeeping is a challenge on every project, but the Cosby Team has risen to that challenge to ensure KBS projects a positive image to the community and our clients. They are incident and injury free and their attention to safety puts them in a great position to see this carried through for the remainder of the project.”
Cosby Village Apartments is a 319,197-square-foot development comprised of a clubhouse and two apartment building with 307 units near the Village Square Parkway and Otterdale Road intersection in Chesterfield.
The Green Leaf Medical project team was given the Excellence in Quality award. The team includes: Brian Bargo, senior estimator; John Gillenwater, project manager; Charlie Schwabe, project engineer; April Shumate, project assistant; and Mark Thomas, superintendent.
“The Green Leaf Medical team has maintained high levels of quality throughout the course of a unique project on an accelerated schedule,” said Matt Kamstra, corporate quality director. “Being one of the first facilities for growing medical marijuana in Virginia, there are a lot of unique requirements from all governing agencies involved. This goes beyond following the typical expectations and requirements of a local inspector, creating more important milestones to meet the required deadlines. This required a great deal of coordination with trades minimize quality deficiencies.”
Green Leaf Medical of Virginia is building one of only five medical cannabidiol processing operations in Virginia. Located on Decatur Street, the 81,880-square-foot facility will produce medical cannabis-based capsules, tinctures and vaporization products requiring a prescription for purchase.
