It’s an Honor Serving the Memphis VA Hospital
Calvert City Project Manager, Billy Everette, recently discussed a 4-month project that began April 10, 2017 at a VA Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. The scope of the current project is sizable: re-insulation of approximately 30,000 feet of piping removed due to moisture and mold issues. In addition to Everette, the undertaking involves key field employees, Jim Spivey and Kenneth Spivey.
Safety: Always a Priority with Gribbins
Everette reports all employees involved with the project were required to undergo testing for TB. In addition, a site safety plan was established for workspace constraints and heat exposure. While ensuring workplace safety is always a priority, the Gribbins team members also strategically and successfully overcome the challenges associated with working in a hospital setting. Everette describes specific complexities, including “Tracking and maintaining material quantities and production quantities on a large scale in a tight work space. Maneuvering materials and workforce to get the project completed with the least amount of disturbance to the VA’s day-to-day operations.”
What a Gribbins Professional Finds Personally Rewarding
While reflecting on how the project touches him personally, Billy Everette shares, “It’s a large project that has a lot of pieces that I can put together to have a successful project, and the result is that I can help make a difference in bettering the safety and health of our country’s wounded veterans.” When asked if there’s anything he’d like to add, Everette replies, “Just a shout out to Semper Tek www.sempertekinc.com for allowing us to be a part of this project. Semper Tek is a Disabled Veteran Owned Company.”
