At the recent Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) National Convention & Expo in Indianapolis, Indiana, Weifield was pleased to learn we were awarded two 2018 IEC National Awards of Excellence in Electrical Construction in the Industrial ($1.5M – $5M) and Commercial ($500K – $1.5M) categories!
Weifield, an IEC-Rocky Mountain member, was recognized for our work on our Industrial division’s Northglenn Wastewater Treatment Plant – Headworks & Clarifier project with Moltz Construction (General Contractor) — which included numerous improvements to the plant that were essential to helping the City of Northglenn meet state and federal regulations for wastewater treatment and improve the quality of the treated water. Weifield saved over 1,000 hours on the schedule through efficiencies executed on the project.
We also received an award for our Special Projects division’s Vertafore Headquarters project with Howell Construction (General Contractor) — which involved a move of the Vertafore headquarters from Washington State to an 18th Street building in downtown Denver that is also home to Denver’s Department of Justice. This project was on a compressed timeline and included very stringent security and cleanliness requirements (as well as precisely-timed move sequences) in order to execute the project successfully within the occupied space.
In addition, the IEC-Rocky Mountain chapter took home numerous awards, including IEC National Apprentice of the Year (Mike Lempka), Instructor of the Year (Joe Tate), Team Award (for the Parade of Lights 2017 float), Apprenticeship Chapter of the Year, Chapter of the Year (90+ Contractors), and Legislative Chapter of the Year (90+ Contractors)!
The IEC National Award of Excellence in Electrical Construction is given each year during IEC Convention & Expo to recognize remarkable electrical projects in the categories of Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Low Voltage/Limited Energy, Efficient Energy, Power Generation, and Service.
