U.S. Engineering won awards last month for two different projects: AT&T DirecTV Foxridge Expansion, HVAC Over $2M; and Church of the Resurrection, Skyline Recognition Award. The company received these honors during the Mechanical Contractors Association in Kansas City’s (MCAKC) Outstanding Mechanical Installation (OMI) Awards Ceremony.
The AT&T DirecTV Foxridge Expansion took home the OMI award for HVAC Over $2 million. U.S. Engineering performed 11,000 hours of work in prefabrication, field fabrication, field installation and startup on this new 22,000 square-foot data center. Because this project took place on the 5th floor of an existing building with live-traffic, the team had only a five-month time span. This project consumed 1,100 feet of 14” pipe, 350 feet of 6” pipe, 700 feet of 3” copper pipe that combined for over 114,000 pounds of material.
The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection won the Skyline Recognition Award. U.S. Engineering designed and installed all custom mechanical systems taking special considerations to meet acoustical requirements necessary for a place of worship. The Skyline Award recognizes a project that is high-profile, state-of-the-art and is willing to be showcased by the owner. The MCAKC chose this project because “the owner and project are truly unique and a part of the Kansas City skyline, rising like a phoenix from southern Overland Park.”
The OMI Awards take place every two years and recognize the best construction projects in the Kansas City area. According to MCAKC, award-winning projects reflect “a standard of excellence built through a partnership of union mechanical contractors and labor teammates.” It is evident these two projects measure up.
Congratulations to the team members who made these awards possible! See the other award winners here.
