Boeing construction crew passes 2 million hour mark

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC - BE&K/Turner, design-builder for the Boeing South Carolina 787 Expansion, announced Tuesday that it has achieved of another safety milestone — 2 million labor-hours worked without a lost-time incident.

To mark the occasion, BE&K/Turner gave out free turkeys to the more than 1,000 tradeworkers currently on the Boeing construction site.

BE&K/Turner celebrated reaching 1 million labor-hours just three months before in September in conjunction with topping out of the 787 assembly facility.

Kenny Anderson, BE&K/Turner's construction manager, commented, "The entire Joint Venture team has made safety a full-time priority on the jobsite. Reaching 2 million labor-hours without a lost-time incident is a remarkable accomplishment for which everyone associated with this project should be extremely proud. Our subcontractors and their employees deserve the most recognition for accomplishing this milestone."

BE&K/Turner broke ground on the Boeing South Carolina 787 expansion last November, began steel erection in April 2010 and set the first steel trusses in May. In June, BE&K/Turner was named General Contractor of the Year by the Charleston Chapter of the American Subcontractors Association of the Carolinas.

The BE&K Building Group and Turner Construction Company have been partnering on select major projects in the Carolinas for nearly 20 years. This is their 12th major project together.

The BE&K/Turner/BRPH design-build team is headquartered at the Building Group's regional office in Greenville, SC.
