Esau Rosa, Benito Vazquez, Eden Garza and Apolinar Garza (H). On a Saturday in July, Houston Methodist Hospital in the Texas Medical Center needed emergency repairs made to their post-anesthesia care unit and operating room areas. The hospital had cases set for Monday that could not be rescheduled. Esau went to assess the situation and, just before midnight on Saturday, we determined our scope of work was limited to four rooms and two corridors. After making calls to ensure workers could make themselves available, repairs were completed late on Sunday night. Our timely completion allowed Environmental Services to terminal clean the space and take a particle count prior to 6:00 a.m. on Monday. The quick coordination of multiple parties to work together to assess the situation and make the repairs took great dedication.
Jeff Richter (C). Jeff goes out of his way to teach and work hands-on with our Civil Division’s service team. During the week of September 7, the person who normally operates the volumetric mixer was not able to travel to the Corpus Christi International Airport project. Instead of telling the project team we would not be able to meet their needs, Jeff went to Corpus Christi himself to calibrate the truck and ensure work could continue. This is a common example of what Jeff does to go the extra mile behind the scenes to keep Civil operations going.
Jerry Vandervoort, Michael Green, John Busch, Caeden Pham, Holden Lewis, Oliver Windon (GT). Carlos Trevino’s family was affected by flooding from Hurricane Harvey and Tropical Storm Imelda. The flood waters were slow to recede, but the team did everything they could to be prepared to hit the ground running as soon as the streets were passable. They arrived at the house first thing on a Sunday morning and worked throughout the day to help remove water-logged furniture, strip walls and flooring, and, above all else, provide support to a team member in need.
Les Raburn (A). Les has been working away from home on the Montgomery County 249 Tollway Mainlane Construction project in Pinehurst since early August. He was requested by the 249 team due to his vast experience with concrete forming systems. In tackling the mainlane gantry truss column, his most difficult challenge to date, Les recognized that the original design of the supports and bracing would have failed if we had poured the 100,000 pounds of concrete called for in the design. Due to Les’ recognition and communication of this concern, the column was re-engineered to include 10 additional supports.

Esau Rosa (H). In thinking about recommendations to help the Houston Methodist Continuing Care Hospital property be more functional, Esau suggested adding concrete pavement on the drive to a former helicopter pad used as laydown space for hospital work. Houston Methodist loved the idea and asked SpawGlass to do the work.
