The Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Missouri is saluting three IBEW/NECA projects as finalists in its AGC Keystone Awards.

This is the 20th anniversary for prestigious construction awards program. Since 1997, nearly 100 IBEW/NECA projects have been honored as finalists.

The annual awards salute building excellence in a number of categories and represent the highest level of professionalism, craftsmanship and quality in construction by Missouri’s general and specialty contractors.

The award is not given for beauty but for achieving solutions during construction for the challenges faced by contractors.


This year, the IBEW/NECA finalist include two projects from Guarantee Electrical Co. and one from PayneCrest Electric, Inc.

• Guarantee Electric is being honored for its work on St. Joseph Hospital West Campus Expansion for SSM Health in Spanish Lake, MO. and the McKendree Metro Rec Plex for McKendree University in O’Fallon, IL.

• PayneCrest Electric is being saluted for its work on the Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) Mid-Campus Center, a mammoth 12-story, 517,000-square-foot medical building completed on an extremely tight site in the midst of the BJC/Washington University campus renewal project.

The finalists will now compete in several categories to earn AGC Keystone Awards. Winners will be announced at the AGC’s annual construction gala on Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017 at the Ameristar Spa & Casino in St. Charles.
