W.E. O'Neil Milestone Celebration
On Friday, August 14, 2015, the entire project team at the Historic Masonic Temple Renovation Project enjoyed an on-site celebration barbecue hosted by Caruso Affiliated. The team celebrated the completion of two specific milestones — the completion of the elevator shaft and the completion of the steel and concrete placement for the 8th-level mezzanine — on-schedule and free of incidents.
The success through this portion of the project can be attributed to the entire project team, including all subcontractor personnel, for their hard work and dedication to safety. Two team members were recognized and awarded by W.E. O’Neil’s Project Superintendent Kevin Covate for their contributions to the project: Jorge Lambarena and Mario Arenales, both of The Unicon Group.
The event was catered by The BBQ Smokehouse of San Pedro, CA.
Thank you to the entire project team for your efforts!
