IBEW 1, NECA contractors honored for skills in building excellence


The quality work and skills of IBEW Local 1 electricians and St. Louis union contractor members of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) were highlighted recently when the Associated General Contractors of Missouri (AGC) honored two companies and their workforces for their construction excellence.

The NECA companies named finalists in the 2019 ACG Keystone Awards, and their specific projects built in 2018, are:

  • Guarantee Electrical – The Last Hotel
  • Guarantee Electrical – Ameren Process Waste Water Treatment facility

  • PayneCrest Electric – Ameren Labadie Fly Ash facility
  • PayneCrest Electric – Monsanto/Bayer Greenhouses

For more than 20 years, the AGC has been honoring construction excellence in its annual AGC Keystone Awards. NECA contractors and its IBEW Local 1 workforce have been saluted for their work on more than 90 projects, 31 of which have been named AGC Keystone Award winners.

The AGC Keystone honors reflect the IBEW/NECA partnership’s prowess in delivering projects safely, on time, within budget and with extraordinary creativity to overcome challenges. On many of the projects, NECA engineering is brought to bear to improve design plans and deliver optimal functionality.

Communications and coordination with other trades and building teams are also a key feature of this salute to excellence.

The Keystone Awards projects honored span the commercial, industrial and institutional markets and include data centers, healthcare facilities, power including renewable energy, public works, research and development, historic renovation, hospitality, sports, advanced manufacturing, higher education, defense, transportation and more.

Winners of the 2019 Keystone Awards will be announced and celebrated at the AGC’s
Construction Awards Gala scheduled for Monday, Nov. 4, at the River City Casino & Hotel in St. Louis.
