Guarantee Electrical Co., a member of the Electrical Connection, has been honored with two Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Missouri Construction Keystone Awards.

At its Nov. 3 gala, the AGC bestowed top honors for Guarantee’s work on Nestlé Bloomfield, Mo. expansion for Nestle Purina PetCare Co. Guarantee was also named the 2022 Specialty Contractor of the Year in the electrical category.

Another Guarantee project was also saluted as a finalist in the Keystone Awards as were two projects by PayneCrest Electric, Inc. Both electrical contractors are members of the IBEW/NECA Electrical Connection partnership.

St. Louis NECA contractors and their IBEW Local 1 workforce have been saluted by the AGC for their work on more than 100 projects, 34 of which have earned AGC Keystone Awards.

Guarantee’s Nestle Bloomfield Expansion was a fast-track project for Nestle Purina’s cat litter plant in Bloomfield, Mo. It required electrical/communications installations in a 100-foot-by-100-foot work zone inside a building that was only 25 percent complete and swarming with multiple trades. The addition is fully automated, and Nestle Purina notes it is the first cat litter facility in its network to self-manufacture its own packaging.

Guarantee was also saluted as a finalist for its work on the Benson Hill Crop Accelerator in St. Louis which repurposed a 47,000-square-foot warehouse to give Benson Hill a “more than 20-fold expansion in testing capacity.”

PayneCrest honored finalist projects included its work on the Benson Hill for Seneca Realty in St. Louis. It’s a new 160,000-square-foot, four-story facility housing agriculture lab areas, climate-controlled seed storage and growing areas on the campus of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center.

The company was also saluted for its work on the Mizzou NextGen Precision Health Institute in Columbia, Mo., a 265,000-square-foot, five-story precision health facility providing space for more than 60 principal investigators.
