129 North Main Street BUILDING MARKET n

By Pete Malikowski


n Monday, April 19, 2020, Cianbro received a call from Puritan Medical Products requesting help. The medical products manufacturer was in desperate need of expanding their current production beyond their Guilford, Maine facility, which had been operating nonstop throughout 2020. Puritan Medical Products is one of two major manufacturers in the world that produce swabs for medical diagnostic purposes on the front-line in the battle against COVID-19, as well as other infectious diseases such as the flu. Puritan had been challenged to develop a plan to double production to 20 million swabs per month at a new facility by July 1. Cianbro immediately sent a team to Guilford to discuss our willingness to help. Cianbro had recently hired team member Paul Dube, a longtime Puritan employee to be our facilities manager. His 4

relationship with Puritan started the conversation about how Cianbro could facilitate Puritan’s expansion. As discussions progressed, it became obvious Cianbro could not only help build a new facility, but also owned an old manufacturing facility at 129 North Main Street in Pittsfield, Maine that could be retrofit to meet their needs. The following day, Cianbro and its subsidiary, A/Z Corporation, reviewed the existing facilities in Guilford and Pittsfield, and developed a proposal, in partnership with Puritan to retrofit the 129 North Main Street property. Efforts quickly shifted to generating a design for the facility, identifying critical long-lead procurement items, and mobilizing to the site. Cianbro and A/Z utilized the entire depth of the organization to get the project up and running. The team met daily with Puritan via Zoom to develop and refine the design, leveraging technology to enhance communication and streamline the design process. Construction teams worked around the clock, 7 days a week to execute the delivery of the facility.

THE SCOPE OF WORK INCLUDED: 48,500 square feet overall renovation of an old

manufacturing facility to produce medical swabs for a July 1 production start date Demolition of existing production space down to its core structural frame

17 – 40-ton rooftop HVAC units 52,000 square feet of roof replacement 14,500 square feet of FRP for clean room walls 45,600 square feet of epoxy flooring 18 tipping machines

This was a major design-build project that Cianbro, A/Z, and Starcon, all part of The Cianbro Companies, worked on together. Craft team members frequently worked outside of their core trades. Cianbro Fabrication & Coatings Corporation delivered structural steel to meet immediate construction needs. Cianbro’s information technology (IT) department worked with A/Z’s telecom group to deliver network and low voltage solutions. Team members from estimating, the Cianbro Institute, and equipment group worked in the field with their tools putting the work in place. Cianbro’s human resources department also assisted Puritan with hiring efforts for the new Pittsfield facility. The project truly has been a story of teamwork and collaboration. All stakeholders came together to meet the needs of Puritan and, more importantly, the needs of our country to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. In all, more than 650 individuals including Cianbro, A/Z, Starcon, subcontractors, engineers, and architects worked on the project to meet the July 1 production startup for Puritan. Collaboration between key subcontractors throughout Maine was pivotal to the success of the renovation. Some long-time competitors worked side-by-side to complete the facility retrofit. Midway through design, Puritan Medical Products determined they would need an additional 9,000 square feet of production space for future machinery and temporary raw / finished goods storage. This resulted in the design team shifting gears to accommodate the future expansion in the midst of construction. As planned, on July 1, Puritan began working in their new Pittsfield ISO-8 cleanroom producing more than 30 million foam-tipped swabs per month. After the start of production, Puritan reached out to Cianbro for additional production space as the demand for foam-tipped swabs continued to escalate worldwide. As a result, a further 6,000-square-foot production expansion was completed in combination with customizing the previously completed 9,000-square-foot expansion. This allowed Puritan to install six multivac lines, further increasing their production capacity to 90 million foam-tipped swabs per month.

Students Explore Career Opportunities with Cianbro CIANBRO INSTITUTE n

By Dan Coffey


ianbro partnered with Junior Achievement of Maine to host 25 Jobs for Maine Grads (JMG) Mahoney Middle School students at our Ricker’s Wharf facility in Portland, Maine. The goal for the day was to help raise the students’ awareness of careers in construction. The Cianbro Institute had multiple instructors participate in the experience who engaged with students through hands-on learning opportunities. The students rotated through a variety of activities consisting of: welding demonstrations, an electrical activity, applying math skills in the construction world, and operating Cianbro’s model crane through a simulated course. “The group was really focused, asked a lot of questions, and was extremely well behaved,” said Justin Desrosiers, welding instructor. “It’s exciting to see students so eager to learn. It was a pleasure to be a part of this event and help these students gain some awareness on the multiple pathways in front of them.” At the end of the day Tony Ayotte, craft development man-

ager, closed out the event with a discussion on industry opportunities, takeaways of the day, and answered questions. “It was great to see how engaged the students were with the instructors,” said Tony. “They asked a lot of good questions about the different crafts. The end of the day discussion about what they learned was amazing. It’s a rewarding feeling when you walk away from an event like this and you know the students really got some value from it.” “You guys knocked it out of the park,” said Jeff Kozaka, JMG Specialist from Mahoney Middle School. “I can’t thank you enough. When I meet with employers who want to do job shadows in the future, I will be using this program as the template.” The Cianbro Institute was pleased for the opportunity to host this event. It’s important for us to get out there and advocate for our industry and the fruitful career opportunities construction brings. We look forward to the next!

Welcoming Starcon & A/Z Corporation to the ESOP ESOP n

By Rachel Ervin

2 020 was a historic year for our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). Team members from both Starcon and A/Z became eligible to participate in the Cianbro Team Equity Plan in 2019, and received their first contributions and stock shares in 2020, attributable to 2019’s success. Employee ownership is one of the core building blocks of our company, and we are thrilled to have team members from all of The Cianbro Companies in the ownership program. We started our team member ownership journey in 1979, when the Cianchette brothers sold a portion of their shares to the retirement plan, to be shared with other members of the team. It was their long-term vision to become 100% employee owned, which would provide team members with the opportunity to share in the company’s success by working

safely and being productive and efficient. They believed that the team members working beside them should be the future owners of the company. Today, the company is one of the largest ESOP companies in the country. One of the greatest benefits of this is that it unites us and helps everyone work toward the same ownership goals. It instills a sense of responsibility within every team member. The culture and behaviors that it creates sets us apart from our competition. With every team member looking out for the best interest of the company, clients can feel confident in the work we produce. By owning a piece of The Cianbro Companies, team members have a special responsibility to their fellow owners and the company. Whether you are a carpenter, a welder, a supervisor, a field administrator or a member of the corporate office, your behavior has a direct impact on the financial success of our company. This is a tremendous milestone for our company and we should all be proud of the behaviors exhibited that solidify that we truly are stronger together.

Safety Excellence in Trying Times SAFETY n

By Anthony Falcon & Scott Knowlen


he combination of challenges faced by The Cianbro Companies in 2020 have been daunting, and not without adverse effects on our business and daily lives. Maintaining the positivity needed for sustaining our culture of safety excellence became a high priority for all of us. It is very easy to yield to distractions without deliberate effort to maintain the safety plan the Company has laid out. The potential for distractions and preoccupation with current external events is at an all-time high. Our landscape on the job has experienced significant change. COVID-19 has taught us much about microbial hazards, how to prevent their spread, and how to make our workplace safer and healthier. Our clients have placed strict control on who enters their facilities, requesting confirmation that team members are fit for duty before entering the job site. Social distancing, monitoring our health and the health of those close to us, wearing facial coverings, and disinfecting surfaces have quickly become new habits to get used to. 8


Adapting to Change Although most of us are wary and cautious when it comes to colds, viruses, and the flu, COVID-19 quickly made us become super effective at preventing the spread of microbial diseases. Always ready for the challenge, our team members set their job sites up for hygienic success. As essential workers, they knew that “No One Gets Hurt” meant “No One Gets Infected.”

Start with a Plan Our senior management team met daily to set the direction of the organization. Following the CDC guidelines and working collaboratively, plans were put in place to support our role as an essential business while supporting our clients. The steps in their plans assured that people maintained social distance on the job, in vehicles, on breaks, and even in emergency situations. Guidance was given for times when team members could not avoid social distancing and facial coverings became a mandatory means of spread prevention. Strict attention was given to high touch surfaces. Even a seemingly harmless activity like signing a safety meeting roster became an unsafe practice. The cleaning and disinfecting of shared spaces went from something we should

do to a mandatory and frequent must do. Workstations were modified where needed, to include barriers, sneeze guards and other necessary protection. Hand washing stations were essential, as was hand sanitizer. Health screenings became a daily function for the team whether it was self-performed, checked at gates by clients, or both. Technology was leveraged to assist us wherever possible. We quickly built a CARE Audit process. Within three days of concept, a mobile app was deployed for managers to measure behaviors within our COVID protocol and determine where additional resources may be needed. We also developed a COVID screening app for team members to self-certify fit for duty. Every day, team members self-evaluate symptoms, possible exposures, and travel. The app then either clears you for work or directs you to contact our medical provider. As we learned more about this pandemic, we updated and modified our guidelines at all levels of the company. In addition, our site teams utilized this guidance and developed plans that fit the size and team member dispersion at their locations. These plans were thorough, covering all of the areas and activities that carried potential for personal contact or frequent surface sharing.

We also developed a COVID screening app for team members to self-certify fit for duty.

Taking Care of Our Team Cianbro Medical Director, Dr. Craig Curtis and his team have played a significant role in taking care of our team members. They have provided guidance on travel, contact tracing, testing, and return-to-work. Working within our framework, based on CDC guidelines, Dr. Curtis and the team have been instrumental in helping us navigate all the different scenarios that arose to protect our projects, our team members, and our families. Our teams’ efforts have proven to be highly effective with the minimal presence of COVID-19 on our job sites.

Renovations & Labs Improve Patient Safety A/Z CORPORATION n

By Kevin Chronley & Steven Biondo

s a global health care leader, Sanofi focuses on improving the lives of patients facing a range of challenges—from global diseases like malaria and influenza to orphan drug therapies for rare genetic disorders. Its 70-plus worldwide manufacturing sites include its sprawling campus in Framingham, Massachusetts, which is home to leading-edge biopharmaceutical product development and CGMP manufacturing. For more than a decade, A/Z has partnered with Sanofi to help transform its facilities to align with its evolving health care mission. A/Z’s recent engagements with Sanofi have included a series of critical renovations to one of the manufacturing facilities on the Framingham campus to accommodate two new process development spaces: a drug product (DP) lab and a downstream processing (DSP) lab. Implementing these renovations required A/Z to mitigate impacts to Sanofi’s primary ongoing manufacturing operations and sensitive Current Good Manufacutring Practice (CGMP)-regulated environments requiring clean construction execution. The DP lab component of the project required A/Z to design, plan, and convert two existing lab spaces into a single lab with an associated cold room. The new space accommodates key operations in Sanofi’s development process: raw material storage, equipment and parts 10

preparation, formulation, material cart transfer, vial filling of the primary containers, stoppering the primary containers, lyophilization (freeze drying), and capping and crimping lyophilized loads. In a nearby area, A/Z converted another lab space into the DSP lab. This work integrated another layer of complexity with the requirement to validate the space as CGMP. A/Z’s team implemented architectural fit/finish and HVAC renovations to fulfill the CGMP requirements that ultimately ensure that Sanofi’s products are safe and consistent for its patients. New equipment installations for the DSP lab included single-use mixers, chromatography systems, nano-filtration, bulk storage holders, a single-use UF/DF filtration skid, and an automated bottle/bag filling skid.

Large diameter transfer piping for cement powder


cInnis Cement produces and transports high-quality cements from its plant in Port-Daniel–Gascons, Quebec to strategically positioned terminals across the eastern seaboard of North America. Its new Port of Providence terminal accepts ship deliveries with payloads in excess of 30,000 metric tons and has a daily loading capacity of more than 100 trucks and 10 rail cars. When McInnis decided to expand its port operations, the company partnered with A/Z to leverage its local self-perform construction and pipe fabrication capabilities. Together, the team embarked on multi-phased upgrades to the terminal to boost its cement powder offloading, storage, and distribution capacity. A/Z’s team fabricated the large-diameter transfer piping responsible for moving cement from inbound ships to an on-site storage dome. Cement is transferred via a barge unloader rated at 800 metric tons per hour to this 134-foot-wide silo with a 40,000-metric ton capacity. This transfer piping initiative represents just one of the major projects that A/Z has completed for McInnis at this site. A/Z teams have also installed much of the infrastructure that drives this new transfer and storage system, including storage dome ventilation systems and hopper vents, fans, pumps, and motors. Additionally, A/Z was responsible for integrating the electrical and instrumentation systems required for powering, controlling, and monitoring the pneumatic cement conveying system at the heart of the terminal.

Delivering on Modern Health Care Demands A/Z CORPORATION n

By Chip McAdams & Steven Biondo


outh County Health (SCH) is founded on more than a century of history and serves more than 125,000 residents in southern Rhode Island. The system operates numerous facilities throughout Washington County, Rhode Island, including the 100-bed South County Hospital. While it is necessary for SCH to keep pace with the growing community and its evolving health care needs, it is rarely possible to shut down areas of the facility for renovation—the hospital sees more than 225,000 outpatient visits alone each year. For this reason, SCH has relied on A/Z’s substantial experience in operational medical facilities to implement many of its most critical projects. Work in active hospitals frequently requires construction personnel to implement Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) precautions and interim life safety measures (ILSM); standards set forth by the American Society for Health Care Engineering (ASHE) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A/Z’s team includes many professionals who have undergone ASHE training to attain their Health Care Construction (HCC) certification. During our partnership with SCH, A/Z has coordinated numerous major upgrades to the active South County Hospital

These include projects for patient care (building addition for state-of-the-art OR, endoscopy suite expansion, and wound care relocation); imaging (MRI relocation and CT scan replacement); and back-of-house services (central sterile supply, pharmacy, and infrastructure). This expertise and familiarity with SCH’s facilities positioned A/Z to respond to an urgent need at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. SCH tasked A/Z to aggressively design and implement the conversion of 10 patient rooms into negatively pressurized spaces, which help limit the spread of airborne contagions. This included the installation of new exhaust units with HEPA filtration and emergency power.

Cianbro Helps Reshape Portland’s Waterfront BUILDING MARKET n

By Scott Tompkins


or the past several years, Portland, Maine has enjoyed a vigorous economic recovery as the city buzzes with construction activity spurred by low interest rates, tax credits, and sustained consumer demand. Cianbro continued to play an integral part of that recovery in 2020, with two major projects in the booming waterfront district: 100 Fore Street and the Canopy Hotel. The 100 Fore Street project comprises 84,000 square feet of office space on the top two levels and three lower levels of structured parking or up to 543 vehicles. As with its companion project, the nearby WEX Global Corporate Headquarters completed in 2019, Cianbro has once



again partnered with Archetype Architects to design 100 Fore Street’s core and shell and SMRT to design the building’s interior. In addition to constructing the office building and pedestal parking garage, Cianbro was engaged to fit out administrative space for WEX and academic space for the Roux Institute at Northeastern University. Located in the heart of Commercial Street in Portland’s Old Port district, the six-story, 104,551-square-foot Canopy Hotel features 135 guest rooms, a restaurant and bar, and a rooftop lounge overlooking Casco Bay. The hotel is composed entirely of high-end materials and finishes including millwork, flooring, furnishings, HVAC, lighting, and brick exterior with decorative black-framed glazing. Both projects have surmounted significant challenges, including extremely tight urban sites; the logistics

of coordinating material deliveries in the heart of Maine’s largest city; and perhaps the most challenging aspect - placing work in the midst of a global pandemic. With up to 150 workers on each site daily, the teams at Canopy Hotel as well as 100 Fore Street resolved to keep the projects safe and operational by closely following Cianbro’s COVID-19 Exposure Prevention, Preparedness, and Response Plan put in place companywide at the onset of the pandemic. “We leveraged our safety professional’s expertise, installed running hot water handwashing stations, and established a point of entry check station for all team members and trade partners entering the site,” said Canopy Hotel Project Manager Todd Desmarais. “Face masks are a requirement for entering the project and must be worn at all times when six-foot distancing isn’t possible.” Other COVID-related complications arose at both sites including workforce shortfalls and compromised material supply chains. Add to that coordinating out-of-state subcontractors and tight sites with little to no laydown area, and the Portland projects faced their share of adversity.

Whenever possible, both projects instituted Lean practices such as pull planning and material storage on wheels to keep the jobs operating efficiently. Trade partner teams were brought in a month or two ahead of schedule to identify long-lead items and develop positive workflow sequences, thus creating efficiencies and reducing the prospect of rework. Just-in-time delivery, however, suffered from supply chain issues and necessitated that some materials be ordered in bulk when available and stockpiled by trade in

designated “parking spaces” on each floor throughout the buildings. “We faced these challenges head-on as a team and reassured everyone ‘We’re all in this together’ both on and off the job site,” said 100 Fore Street Project Superintendent Spencer Seiferth. “This collective sense of purpose fostered a certain camaraderie, enabling the team to pull together to complete common goals and produce a finished project we’re all proud of…including the owner.”

Squibb Park Bridge, Brooklyn, New York

Redesign to the Squibb Park Bridge FABRICATION & COATING n

By Rob Nickerson


he original design of the Squibb Park Bridge in Brooklyn, New York was a fairly ambitious one as far as pedestrian bridges go. Connecting the New York City Squibb Park to Brooklyn Bridge Park, the original environmentally sustainable wooden bridge opened in 2013. It was intentionally designed to give its users a slightly whimsical “bounce” from the motion of day-to-day foot traffic. Within a couple of years, however, the bridge started to develop unintended lateral movement and the light bounce devolved into more of a lurch. The once fanciful pedestrian experience had become disconcerting for the average user. After an analysis of the bridge showed a significant flaw in design, it was decided that starting again would be preferable to modifying the existing structure. A new design for a less lively bridge was drafted and the wooden superstructure was demolished in October 2019. Turner Construction was awarded the contract for the redesigned bridge and brought Cianbro Fabrication & Coating Corporation (CFCC) into the fold. The new design, which kept the original concrete piers intact to save on cost, was constructed of aluminum and steel and preserved the aesthetic of the original, while completely eliminating the once whimsical sway that had previously distressed many a 16

New York dog walker. At about 64 tons, the series of steel frames spanning a total distance of 450 feet was surprisingly light, partially owing to the design considerations necessary to successfully reuse the original piers that were intended to support a timber structure. The fabrication and coating facility in Pittsfield, Maine provided the bearing support brackets while the Georgetown shop in Massachusetts handled the assembly of the spans themselves. The assembly took up its fair share of real estate at Georgetown, though the fab shop would prove to be downright spacious in comparison to the tight New York streets that the completed spans would ultimately have to navigate. In the field, strict erection plans required close schedule coordination, but CFCC’s series of deliveries were carried out not only on time, but with zero reported fit-up issues in the field. As a matter of fact, the Squibb Bridge project was completed and opened ahead of schedule, in no small part due to the efforts and care of the CFCC team.

n October 2020, Puritan announced a second major expansion in Pittsfield, Maine in a continued partnership with Cianbro. This second facility, located at the former San Antonio Shoe manufacturing site, complements Puritan’s first manufacturing plant at 129 North Main Street and is expected to increase swab production by an additional 50 million swabs per month. Design and construction planning activities on this second facility started in late September. The plant is expected to start producing swabs at the beginning of January 2021. This project will once again employ more than 650 individuals who will retrofit the facility on an extremely aggressive schedule. The new facility includes approximately 78,840 square feet of total building space including 38,330 square feet in three separate cleanroom manufacturing spaces for the production of flocked polyester swabs. An adjacent three-story brick building has been demolished to create space for future possible expansion by Puritan. Puritan evaluated various sites in central Maine for their second expansion. After collaborative negotiation, San Antonio Shoe (SAS) of Texas, agreed to donate approximately 29 acres of land and their former buildings in Pittsfield to the Pittsfield Development Corporation. Pittsfield Development, in turn, contributed approximately 11.5 acres of land and the former manufacturing building to Puritan Medical Products. The remaining acreage has been retained by Pittsfield Development Corporation for future development opportunities. The second factory in Pittsfield would not have been possible without the generosity of Lisa Armstrong and Cheryl Remmert, the daughters of Maine native Terry Armstrong, who co-founded San Antonio Shoe. Given the historical significance of the buildings, the

“I believe this is a momentous occasion and a celebration for us all, and particularly the town of Pittsfield.” Armstrong family requested a number of items from the building including bricks, wooden beams, granite window sills and various pieces of equipment be preserved and included in a family “remembrance room” in recognition of the SAS Founder, Terry Armstrong, his family, and the SAS company. Pete Vigue, Chairman of The Cianbro Companies, shared with a small gathering the announcement of the second Puritan expansion. “I believe this is a momentous occasion and a celebration for us all, and particularly the town of Pittsfield,” Vigue said. These projects have contributed to a revitalization of the community and the town of Pittsfield, Maine. In the midst of the pandemic and economic insecurity, the projects have brought many construction teams to the town which has benefited the local businesses and the surrounding area. The project also created new jobs for Cianbro and Puritan which has provided further economic stability for the community. ✔ 69,944 Project Safe Hours

Concrete processing barge for project in Kittery, Maine

A Creative Solution for a Concrete Problem EQUIPMENT n

By Chris Jarvais


he Cianbro Companies has a large and diverse project portfolio. As our capabilities continue to increase, it seems the more challenging the project, the better the team performs. When the project team in Kittery, Maine was tasked with planning a massive concrete operation with little real estate, they quickly came to the conclusion that the operation needed to be waterborne. Knowing that Cianbro did not possess the necessary equipment, they contacted Cianbro’s Equipment Team. “The team had roughly six months to begin the concrete operation placing 2,000 cubic yards/shift efficiently,” said Purchasing Professional Tony Foster. “The process involved two barge mounted operations, one to provide raw materials and the other to process the concrete. The material barge operation contained space for the raw materials, two skid steer loaders, a cold feed plant and a Super Stacker conveyor. The processing barge contained six fly ash tanks, a mo18


bile batch plant, a concrete remixer, a support conveyor, a Telebelt conveyor, a water tank, and a large excavator.” Upon delivery, the project team had to make sure everything worked properly. Project Superintendent Ryan Collet was up for the challenge. “We had to modify everything designed to work on land so it would work on the water,” Collet said. The biggest challenge on the install was the ballasting of the barges to ensure everything was level and worked properly together. Operationally, the limiting factor is reloading the material barge. To process 33,000 tons of stone and 5,000 tons of sand successfully, the operation must be insync and efficient.” QA/QC Supervisor Bill Hood elaborated on the challenges. “We really had to be creative with the Telebelt,” said Hood. We had to reinstall all of the hoses properly and modify the base to achieve the proper elevation. The most critical element is having the right people. It is essential to have people who understand the work we are doing.” The project in Kittery, Maine is immense in scale and complex in execution. With the Cianbro team’s innovative approach and focus on people, it is sure to be successful!

Cianbro’s Quality Control Certifications QUALITY ASSURANCE n

By Charles Hall


ianbro construction activities include virtually all aspects of building - civil, mechanical, electrical and marine activities to list a few. Certain structures pose a greater risk to society once put into service, or they are more important to owners due to their inherently higher impact in cost or operational downtime if unexpected maintenance is required after construction. Industry requirements have become more formal and regimented. For those structures or activities, industry consensus groups, require construction companies to seek and obtain authorization prior 20


to performing some activities. Owners specify stringent requirements for construction companies, including the need for industry certification in order to perform vital tasks. Some jurisdictions (state authorities) also require construction companies to hold industry certifications in order to perform select work activities. When jurisdictional authorities require certification, it is law. Cianbro holds multiple industry certifications. Each certification requires a formal Quality Control (QC) Plan, trained personnel to carry out specified activities and inspections, and robust documentation of activities and direct oversight from assigned industry representatives (inspectors or auditors). To hold any industry certification, Cianbro commits to meeting all

requirements and submitting to oversight and audits from the industry group on a regular basis. Cianbro performs all construction activities in accordance with standards and specifications regardless of whether certification is required or not. Lack of specific certification requirements for some activities does not diminish the importance of performing them correctly. Certification brings a higher level of process control and oversight in following standards and specifications for critical activities. Cianbro holds the following certifications:

Cianbro Fabrication & Coating Corporation, Pittsfield, Maine

American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME): U: Authority to Design & Build Unfired Pressure Vessels

S: Authority to Design & Build High Pressure Boilers (including Power Piping)

The National Board of Boiler Inspectors (NB): R: Authority to Repair & Alter Boilers, Pressure Vessels & Power Piping NB: Authorization to Register Items with the National Board

American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC): CSE-A: Certified Steel Erector (Advanced)

The Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC): QP-1: Perform Field Application to Complex Industrial & Marine Structures QP-2: Perform Field Removal of Hazardous Coatings

Most often, requirements to comply with any of these certifications appear in project specifications. Project teams should contact Cianbro’s Quality Assurance Department to plan for activities when specified or if there is any question regarding compliance with these programs. Implementation of industry specific guidelines includes many administrative and technical details, including assignment of personnel and responsibilities and in some cases, certification of activities upon completion of work.

By Jay Walkowski & Gary Smith


ianbro’s Industrial and Manufacturing Market (IDM) expanded into the Southeast United States almost five years ago and has continued to develop relationships with key clients. Our focus is on complex projects using Cianbro’s experience in power generation and renewable energy. Cianbro is currently working with several clients that have long term energy strategies in place and share in our commitment to quality and safety. Cianbro paired with Southern Company subsidiary Georgia Power to complete the Bartletts Ferry Dam Spillway Replacement in 2019. The project entailed replacement of 19 tainter style flood gates, gate sills, and gate guide angles – a hydroelectric project of this scope, scale, and magnitude had not yet been performed in the United States. The project received the Engineering News Record’s Southeast Best Project Award in the energy/industrial category and the Associated Builders and Contractors Connecticut Excellence in Construction Award in the industrial category. As the market focus shifts from fossil fuels to renewable energy, Cianbro is focused on generating additional opportunities in solar, hydroelectric, natural gas, and other renewable sources. Cianbro has taken positive steps towards expanding into other regional avenues of industrial work by leveraging our business units including the building market team, Starcon, and A/Z Corporation. Two prominent clients in the mid-Atlantic region are Dominion Cove Point and GenOn. The Dominion Cove Point LNG facility continues to provide year round work including an outage season that has produced larger opportunities for our industrial crews. Additionally, Cianbro has been awarded multiple phases of the installation of a SFC Bottom Ash conveyor system at the GenO n Chalk Point facility in Aquasco, Maryland. Scope of work includes installing a large conveyor and associated piping into a tight area of the operating power plant.

Building Long Term Relationships to Meet our Industrial Clients’ Needs INDUSTRIAL & MANUFACTURING MARKET n

By Jon Clements & Matt Foster


ianbro is focused on building long-term client relationships that go beyond one-time projects. We take on the first project with the goal of providing value to a client on a consistent, ongoing basis. This was our objective in the fall of 2018 when managers out of Cianbro’s Ricker’s Wharf office were notified of a client in southern Maine that was seeking a contractor to perform a plant expansion to increase it’s production ability. Cianbro built the client a rough order of magnitude budget to complete this work, assisted with geotechnical borings, and introduced them to multiple engineering firms to design the work. In the spring of 2019, the client awarded Cianbro the project and construction commenced later that year. Cianbro has been on-site leading the plant expansion since December 2019. With the success of this project, Cianbro secured a deal with the client to continue working into 2021 and possibly longer if the client is awarded the next project. While the relationship with the aforementioned client was recently established, Cianbro and Portland Pipe Line Corporation (PPL) continue to work together on the Portland waterfront with a relationship spanning many decades. Cianbro began multiple small projects in March 2020 that wrapped up in early September, including the replacement of an existing pier deck and cast-in-place beams. The scope of work included the installation of a new stainless steel handrail, repairing and maintaining smart hooks and fenders used to bring oil tankers into port, and maintaining mixers used in the large tanks at the PPL tank farm. Additional projects included the replacement of electrical conduits and boxes that had been corroded by seawater and supporting a subcontractor with pressure grouting under the pier where concrete had spalled. With the completion of the 2020 projects, PPL was able to receive tankers by the end of the year, which has further strengthened the relationship between Cianbro and PPL. CIANBRO CHATTER

Meeting the Challenge for Portsmouth Naval Shipyard INFRASTRUCTURE MARKET n

By Scott Jason


ortsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY), located in Kittery, Maine, is the U.S. Navy’s oldest continuously operating naval shipyard. Established during the administration of John Adams, the shipyard has a storied history; building and servicing ships, housing prisoners of war and even serving as the backdrop for an International Peace Treaty. For the last 100 years, PNSY has specialized in building and servicing submarines. Due to the Navy’s operational requirements and the limited amount of shipyards with the capability to perform PNSY’s mission, contractors on the base must meet aggressive timelines, manage complex coordination challenges, and make schedule adjustments on short notice. Cianbro has been meeting these challenges at the shipyard with high-profile projects of increasing complexity. Awarded in January 2017, the Caisson Replacement & Seat Repair was a mission-critical project to replace an existing dry dock door (caisson) and rehabilitate the dry dock seat. One of the challenges of the project was how to rehabilitate the dry dock entrance structure without taking the dock out of service. The solution would be what is called a limpet cofferdam. Limpet cofferdams are small cofferdams typically used in ship repair to effect in-water hull repairs. This innovative approach provided a dry workspace large enough to allow team members to complete concrete repairs below the surface without taking the dry dock out of service. In addition to the seat repairs, Cianbro managed the construction of the new caisson at an offsite facility by our partner Steel America, as well as replacement of a sluice gate and conduit grate at the dock entrance, concrete repairs to the interior of the dock walls and the installation of a new dock stairway system. The project was successfully delivered on time in the spring of 2020. Awarded in November 2016, Cianbro modernized over 1,200 feet of pile-supported open wharf structures in front of an active dry dock. The team installed a king pile-supported precast concrete shutter panel wall and sheet pile bulkhead. 26


The challenges were schedule and logistics. The Navy had a “must meet” aggressive timeline to accommodate a fixed submarine berthing schedule, with limited shore side space to accommodate equipment, personnel, and material. Cianbro mobilized a significant portion of marine equipment including specialized jack up barges, deck barges and sectional crane barges with specialized cranes to reduce the shore side footprint. Through a partnering relationship, appreciation for the clients and needs and the commitment of the greater team toward the accomplishment of the mission, Cianbro substantially completed the project on time in March 2020. In mid-2017, Cianbro was selected as the successful bidder for a submarine support complex. Shortly after receiving notice of award, the mission of the project was changed to meet the mission needs of the shipyard facility. For the next several months, the Cianbro team worked alongside with the PNSY Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) and engineering teams to get the new design and construction of the project under way in an unprecedented short window of time. The work was broken into packages and put into execution with amazing speed and efficiency. This project included the construction of multiple complex industrial buildings that required strict compliance and was surrounded by numerous other planned and ongoing projects. Portions of the work were subcontracted to specialty subcontractors with the experience in execution of this type of work for the Navy in the past. Structural steel, metal siding panels, electrical and controls, unique HVAC systems, etc. are just some of the critical pieces of work needed to deliver this project. Work continues on the complex as Cianbro works closely with NAVFAC, it’s engineers and shipyard customers to bring this unique project to successful completion. Awarded in December 2019, the P-310 Superflood Project is the first phase of the largest and most technically complex infrastructure project the Navy has undertaken in years. The project involves constructing the foundational basin of what will become two new multi-mission dry docks needed to service the Navy’s future fleet of submarines. The work entails construction of large concrete filled cellular cofferdams to extend the existing structures, fabrication, delivery and installation of a more than 5,000-ton precast concrete entrance

structure, construction of temporary cofferdam cutoff walls, improvements to the existing granite wall via a sheet pile and concrete fill lining, dredging and rock blasting and removal, the addition of thousands of feet of landside concrete crane and trail rail systems, and modification to and addition of significant underground utilities needed to accommodate the initial superflood capability and the follow on future dry dock plans. Cianbro continues to fully appreciate the importance of Portsmouth Naval Shipyard to the defense of our country and the freedoms that our armed forces make possible for us all to enjoy. We value the partnering relationship with NAVFAC as our customer as we focus on successful completion of the current projects and work on developing the best value option for future projects yet to come. ✔ 385,000 Project Safe Hours

Delivering Infrastructure Projects Efficiently with CM/GC INFRASTRUCTURE MARKET n

By Scott Jason


elivering infrastructure projects efficiently, within budget and on time is critical to our customers, particularly our public agency owners. One way public agencies ensure they are delivering projects efficiently is by choosing a delivery method that allocates risk and control to the entity best able to manage it during design and construction. Historically, the two most common methods of project delivery are “Design-Bid-Build” and “Design-Build.” These delivery methods tend to be a one-size-fits all approach and the owner must accept tradeoffs when choosing between the two. Over the last decade, the Federal Highway Administration

has promoted an alternate delivery method called Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) to overcome limitations of Design-Bid-Build and Design-Build. This method of project delivery allows the client/agency to retain control of the design through a contract with the engineer of their choosing while at the same time having the advantage of utilizing the collective experience and knowledge of the best suited contractor to provide constructability, risk and subsequent cost analysis input during the design process. This process is the best example of working together as a team for a common goal leveraging the strengths of all parties involved. Cianbro has been at the forefront of adopting this new approach from the contractor side and to date, has either completed or is in the process of executing CM/GC projects in Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, and Vermont. The following provides a more detailed look into those projects.

The Walk Bridge & CP243 Dock Yard Project Connecticut Department of Transportation Cianbro is currently working with Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) on two projects that are part of the overall Walk Bridge Program in Norwalk, Connecticut. What originally started as one project to replace the existing swing bridge evolved into two projects out of necessity. It was determined during the procurement and CM process that additional rail work was needed to avoid any significant impact to the rail service. The CTDOT was able to utilize the extensive experience of the Cianbro joint venture team to accelerate the start of the work, which may have otherwise been delayed, possibly for years. By using the CM/GC team approach, the precursor project referred to as the CP243 Dockyard Project, was designed, refined, and started while the engineering for the Walk Bridge was taking place. The Cianbro team had project execution personnel and estimating teams working on both fronts to advance the projects. Cianbro’s collaboration with the owner and designer has enabled design elements of the Walk Bridge to be



simultaneously incorporated into the CP243 Dockyard Project. A prime example of this is the early installation of the replacement submarine cable needed for the new bridge and the advanced utilities packages at two separate locations that must be completed as part of the overall program. These activities are planned to finish in advance of the bridge work allowing for less schedule pressure and risk to the owner and less congestion and overall cost during the major bridge work. Further, by performing the utility work early, the team can

focus on larger aspects of the work and minimize the schedule and cost of the overall project. Through the evolution of the CM preconstruction input, the Cianbro joint venture estimating team has been working hard to identify key staging areas, necessary equipment, barge layouts, and containment strategies needing permit approval. Early input from the Cianbro joint venture team allows the client to work with the regulatory agencies on permit conditions that have the least impact to the project and environment. Another critical design consideration is negotiating and acquiring the ‘Right of Way’ needed to construct the bridge, particularly where lift spans will be built and ultimately floated into place. After community stakeholders voiced concern about the impact of constructing the lift spans near the downtown area, the CTDOT asked Cianbro, as part of the CM/GC process, to review the possibility of constructing the lift spans off-site. After researching numerous options, Cianbro provided the owner with an outline of different

options including means and methods of fabrication, site photos, and costs associated with each option. The ability to receive this kind of feedback prior to finalizing design is one of the key elements of the CM/GC process. ✔ 144,319 Project Safe Hours

Curtis Creek Bridge Rehabilitation Maryland Transportation Authority During the pre-construction phase, Cianbro worked with the designer and project owner to identify long lead mechanical and electrical items that could be solicited in an “early procurement package.” This package ensured the project could be awarded and performed within the owner’s schedule. ✔ 62,100 Project Safe Hours

North Hero-Grand Isle Drawbridge Replacement Vermont Agency of Transportation During the pre-construction phase, Cianbro worked with the designer to perform a detailed cost analysis of phased construction vs. a temporary bridge installation. Based on the analysis, Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTRANS) was able to evaluate cost and impact for all stakeholders and proceed with the temporary bridge solution. VTRANS also realized gains in cost efficiency by incorporating best practices when utilizing Cianbro equipment, such as using the same cranes for temporary bridge erection and permanent bridge erection. This construction approach required additional fill, but with the benefits of CM/GC, the temporary environmental impacts could be incorporated into the plan for permit approval prior to award.

On complex projects with a variety of stakeholders, a myriad of regulations, and numerous unknowns, the use of CM/GC is proving to be an effective and efficient delivery method that fosters collaboration and innovation to see tough projects through to completion, on time and on budget.

Transmission & Distribution Team Supports Clients from Storm Response to Maintenance POWER & ENERGY MARKET n

By Scott MacDonald


hroughout 2020 the New England Transmission & Distribution team has continued supporting our clients in multiple areas including routine maintenance work through master services agreements, storm response, and critical capital projects. Highlights to date include:

Eversource Master Service Agreement Projects The team continued to perform work under our Master Service Agreement with Eversource in New Hampshire. Scopes of work included replacing open wire conductor with spacer cable “tree” wire to help with reliability, replacing right of way distribution poles, installing automation devices and responding to multiple storm events within Eversources’ territories in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.

New England Transmission & Distribution Team

Maine Turnpike / Central Maine Power Exit 45 Transmission Line Relocations The team performed three separate electrical transmission line upgrades and reroutes across Interstate 95 in Portland, Maine to accommodate future upgrades to the Exit 45 interchange. In total there were 14 structure replacements that included installing conductors, overhead shield wires, and fiber optic cables.

Central Maine Power Master Service Agreement Award for 2020 through 2023 Cianbro was awarded a three-year Master Service agreement with Avangrid for distribution maintenance work within Central Maine Power’s service territories in Maine.

Teamwork Helps Meet Substation & Transmission Line Schedule POWER & ENERGY MARKET n

By Cam Rand


n the spring of 2020, Cianbro concluded the installation of County Road Substation in Oakland, Maine, along with seven miles of new direct embedded steel monopole 115 kV transmission line which tied into the new substation. Cianbro’s Power & Energy team began this project in late summer of 2019 when we broke ground at the substation pad with our subcontract partner, Ranger Contracting Inc. With the delayed award of the project, our team acknowledged the urgency to get below-grade construction of the 115/34.5/12.47kV substation complete before winter set in. As work progressed in the yard, below grade with oversight from Project Assistant Superintendent Jeremy Moody and Design Specialist Ryan Lockhart, the team in the control house, led by Patti Brann, was executing a well-orchestrated plan to complete the fit-out of the control house. As foundations were placed and grades established, Jordan Lyford and his team continued diligently in the field with yard conduit and ground grid installations. The T-line scope of work started with the installation of seventy-four 48-inch and 60-inch culverts for the direct embedded poles. By early fall, the first steel pole for the new line, Section 241, was spotted and installed by Scott Bumps, DJ Robinson, and team. All resources and team members’ focus was then directed toward completing the Interstate 95 crossing. With this being outage-driven work, all of our Northern New England Transmission & Distribution resources came together and showed superior team work in executing this large scope of work within a tight schedule. By the turn of the year the team, led by Ryan Perkins and Matt Sullivan, were ready to install the new 126,000 feet of 1192 aluminum conductor steel reinforced, and 40,000 feet of optical ground wire.



… showed superior team work in executing this large scope of work within a tight schedule. Once above-grade construction began at the County Road Substation and structural steel arrived, it was apparent that many pieces of the steel would require modifications to meet or correct deficiencies in design. Cianbro’s highly experienced steel erection crew, led by Bill Dusty, ensured that issues were addressed immediately and provided possible solutions to the client to ensure critical path activities stayed on schedule. Progression of the above grade electrical and mechanical construction continued through the winter with Mike Dube leading the fitting and welding of the tubular bus and Matt Raven coordinating the pulling of yard protection and control cables from the field. As circuits became energized for testing and commissioning activities, Patti and the team maintained detailed and clear coordination with testing and commissioning parties to ensure she was keeping her team safe. Due to various design flaws with the 34.5kV disconnect switches, Brent Haskell and his mechanical crew focused heavily on the troubleshooting, adjustment, and replacement of various parts in highly congested aerial locations. Through a consistent six day workweek, the team was able to finally reach the targeted energization date of the substation on April 21 2020, while also working through the onset of COVID-19. Once Section 241 became energized another series of outages on three 34.5kv circuits that ran into the old Rice Rips Substation needed to be cut over to the County Road Substation. The distribution team, led by Scott Rand and Corey Blagdon, assisted with the execution of the outages. Finally 115kV line section 281 needed to be rerated, this required the installation of 44 energized sets, 22 transfers, and 160 structures to be renumbered, which required climbing each one individually. Special thanks to Shane Ennis and Bruce Chesley for supporting the team with education and safety needs during all the work and different outages. The project spanned approximately eight months from mobilization to energization. It took the commitment of the team and has reaffirmed Cianbro’s capabilities as a full-service provider across the transmission, distribution, and substation submarkets. Thank you to all involved with the project. ✔ 37,814 Project Safe Hours



Project Success on Cianbro’s First 138 kV BOLD® Transmission Line POWER & ENERGY MARKET n

By Zeb Underwood


n September 2020, Cianbro was awarded Best Project in the Specialty Construction category from Engineering News Record’s (ENR) Midwest chapter for the Sorenson-Deer Creek 138 kV BOLD® Transmission Line Rebuild Project. ENR’s annual awards program honors the best construction projects and the companies that build them. The awards are based on how a project performs in the following areas: overcoming challenges and teamwork; safety; innovation and contribution to the industry/community; construction quality and craftsmanship; and functionality of design and aesthetic quality. The Sorenson-Deer Creek 138 kV BOLD® Transmission Line Rebuild Project was the first 138 kV BOLD® (Breakthrough Overhead Line Design) double circuit transmission line that Cianbro constructed for American Electric Power (AEP). BOLD® is an AEP patented, high-capacity, high-efficiency, transmission line design with a low-profile, compact configuration.



The project covered 35 miles from Huntington to Marion, Indiana. The project included installing, maintaining, and removing over 35 miles of access roads, work pads, right-of-way (ROW), and environmental controls, installing 215 steel BOLD® transmission structures on drilled concrete foundations, installing 35 miles of double circuit single conductor including shield and optical ground wire, removing 199 steel lattice towers, and removing 35 miles of existing conductor and shield wire. From the very first day on the project, the team agreed that the path to a safe and successful project was through collaboration and effective communication between AEP, Cianbro, the Safety Management Group, and all of our subcontractors. In addition to our project safety kick-off meeting and weekly site safety meetings, our team held quarterly project safety meetings. These meetings focused on effective planning, best practices, good catches, near misses, incidents, last minute risk assessments, and how the team planned to continuously improve our safety performance. Our number one goal was to share safety information effectively with all project stakeholders and implement positive changes to our work practices. To help deliver the Sorenson-Deer Creek project safely ahead of schedule and under budget, the project team

overcame multiple challenges with innovative solutions. One such innovative solution was a direct result of the team setting a goal to decrease labor hours and cost associated with conductor installation. As the project team was preparing the conductor installation plan with pull force calculations, the team developed a plan to utilize hard line and pull two conductors simultaneously. To control the angle of the hard line traveling off the puller/tensioner, the team worked with our internal engineering resources to design a roller-fairlead that would act as a guide for the hard line both vertically and horizontally. This approach proved effective and resulted in significantly fewer labor hours. This innovation has been implemented on current projects and incorporated into our project pursuit process. The success of this project has led to additional opportunities with AEP including the Deer Creek-Wes Del 138kV BOLD® Transmission Line Project in Indiana that started in July 2020 and includes approximately 20 miles of transmission line rebuild. Thanks to the project team for their effort, innovative ideas, positive attitude, and hard work: Josh Turner, Pat Chamberlain, James “Andy” Wolf, Darren Herschberger, John Trainer, Jeremy Harshbarger, Chad Page, Joe Schackart, Eddie Ferreira, Quinton Johnson, David Korb, Roy Bolton, Guy Berthiaume, Luke Chamberlain, Bryton York, Austin Burgoyne, Tyler Craft, Bryan King, Danielle Anthony, Tony Gunsaulis, Josh Gale, Zeb Underwood, and many other

team members.

ach year, American Electric Power (AEP) honors three of its top contractors with the Contractor Safety Award. To earn this recognition, contractors must excel in protecting their team through operational tasks and practices, backed by leadership committed to the Zero Harm approach to injury prevention. This year, AEP chose Cianbro as one of the Contractor Safety Award recipients. Some key areas of focus that have helped Cianbro’s Power & Energy team create an award-winning safe work environment include reviewing safety measures and seeing where we can improve, encouraging regular communication among team members, sharing and learning best practices, and always focusing on doing what is right. “We submitted our first safety improvement plan in 2017, and each year we continue to see the value of the process,” said Paul Franceschi, Vice President and General Manager of Power & Energy. “We continue to include a larger group of team members to help develop our safety plans, not only engaging our team on AEP projects, but leadership from across our entire business unit. Through our commitment to safety, we have implemented improvements on all projects with all customers.” In November 2020, Pete Vigue, Chairman of The Cianbro Companies, presented the AEP Contractor Safety Award to Franceschi and Josh Gale, Assistant General Manager of Power & Energy. The two accepted the honor on behalf of all the Cianbro team members and subcontractors who have worked on AEP projects. Cianbro’s first AEP project was in 2015 in Salem, Virginia. Since then, Cianbro has worked on 16 AEP projects across Indiana, Ohio, Virginia, and West Virginia. “We are confident that we will see continued success, and are very appreciative of the guidance AEP has provided us,” said Franceschi. “Together, we’ll achieve Zero Harm.” CIANBRO CHATTER

Starcon Continues Successful Partnership with Dow Texas Operations




By Ryne Elfstrom


n 2014, Starcon began building a relationship with Dow Texas Operations to provide turnaround services at their Freeport, Texas site - the largest integrated chemical manufacturing complex in the Western Hemisphere. Over time, Starcon’s success has led to more and more work beyond turnarounds and into capital, measure and sketch, construction, and other divisions within the Dow Chemical Complex. After the successful completion of several projects, Starcon had the opportunity to assemble and grow a core team at Dow’s Freeport facility, comprised of local professionals and Starcon team members from other sites who wished to continue their tenure at the Freeport facility and build upon the region’s success. We are proud of the Freeport team today. We believe they are poised for future success, project after project. With repeated awards of work, such as the annual Picloram Turnaround, the team has clearly demonstrated that Dow can trust Starcon to get the job done safely and efficiently, time and time again. In 2016, Starcon opened a new fabrication shop in Freeport, Texas making them even more versatile as a contractor resource; not only for Dow, but for other clients for whom our team would build. Starcon’s largest project to date at the Freeport site is taking part in the Dow Chemical Mosaic Project, located in Clute, Texas. This is part of Dow’s worldwide effort to double their ethylene production capacity. Starcon was selected as the construction contractor to work under Wood Group. Major scopes of

Clute Fabrication Shop

1 Million Work Hours Without Injury at Marathon Canton Refinery

work included the installation of three ethylene dryers and a CO2 absorber. To support the fabrication demands of this new opportunity, Starcon moved its Freeport operations to a new facility in nearby Clute, Texas. The new facility not only includes a fabrication shop with fabrication areas for both general and specialty stainless steel applications, but also a hub of office space, a shipping and receiving area, and warehousing. The year long expansion project was successfully completed in early 2020 on time, on budget, and with a total recordable injury rate (TRIR) of 0.00 over a total of 139,398 exposure hours. The team, led by Project Manager Robert Engelhardt, was recognized for their outstanding efforts by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Greater Houston Chapter and named winner of the Excellence in Construction ICE Award. Another project completed on time, on budget, and most importantly, with zero recordable injuries. The Mosaic Project is a great example of the partnership that Starcon has with Dow Chemical. This partnership has produced nearly six years of successful projects for Starcon with over 950,000 work hours and zero recordable injuries. The future is bright for our Freeport area team. Starcon continues to emerge as the contractor of choice for this region thanks to the uncompromising commitment of the men and women putting in the work each and every day.

ince 2003, Starcon has successfully maintained a nested maintenance contract at the Marathon Canton Refinery. In addition to the routine maintenance work, Starcon also provides turnkey mechanical services for many of the refinery’s scheduled outage and turnaround activity. Over the years our relationship with the Marathon Canton Refinery has continued to grow into one of our flagship maintenance locations. On Wednesday February 26, 2020 the Starcon team celebrated one of the most significant achievements in the history of our partnership with Marathon when we achieved 1 million work hours without a recordable injury. It is with great pride that we make this announcement as this is an achievement that cannot be accomplished without the commitment of the entire Starcon and Marathon team. Starcon believes in a proactive approach to all aspects of health and safety driven through a program of consistent team member engagement to ensure the best working conditions in this facility. Safety at Starcon has always been the highest value and this milestone is a testament to the effectiveness of our safety program and culture. Congratulations to the team and thank you for your commitment to safety excellence. One million safe hours down and committed to the next one million!

Cianbro Equipment & Starcon Logistics Integration a Success EQUIPMENT & STARCON n

By Megan Barnes

common challenge for an organization the size of The Cianbro Companies (TCC) is how to leverage best practices across the organization without negatively impacting customer service. This is what the Cianbro Equipment LLC (CEL) team was tasked with solving when they began the CEL/Starcon Logistics integration process. CEL Manager Doug LaCroix explains, “It began with the creation of the 2018 CEL Business Plan. Some of the initial tasks identified were: document similar processes at CEL and Starcon Logistics, utilize LEAN principles to identify best practices, and document best practices for later inclusion in our standard operating procedures. Simultaneously, we had to identify what items (equipment/tools/scaffolding) Starcon routinely rents from third party suppliers.” Once the information was gathered, several questions needed to be answered. What can we do to leverage the information? How do we create synergy/efficiencies between CEL and Starcon Logistics? How do we standardize the equipment rental process? Equipment Superintendent Buddy Kershner elaborated, “We knew we needed help from subject matter experts if we were going to complete the integration process successfully without impacting customer service.” A team was created with members from CEL, Starcon Logistics, corporate IT development, corporate finance, and Starcon finance. The team held weekly meetings, creating an outline identifying the required resources: team members, infrastructure, and systems. Next, the team finalized an enterprise resource 42


Truck Mount Bundle Extractor

plan with a budget. Key components of the plan included Starcon Logistics migrating to CEL’s software platform (M3), streamlining all processes using lean principles, implementing identical processes/best practices throughout CEL/Starcon Logistics, and centralizing all Starcon 3rd party rentals through CEL/Starcon Logistics. After preparation and training were complete, the integration took place on March 2, 2020. It immediately enhanced customer service, allowing customers to have the same experience whether in Pittsfield, Maine; New Lenox, Illinois; La Porte Texas; and everywhere in between. The integration was a success due to the collaboration and efforts of everyone on the team. The success serves as proof that the saying is true, NO ONE IS SMARTER THAN ALL OF US!

No one is smarter than all of us!

Fabrication & Coatings Involvement with Puritan Project FABRICATION & COATING n

By Rob Nickerson

t the end of April 2020, when Cianbro partnered with Puritan Medical Products to renovate an old manufacturing facility, it was all hands on deck. Cianbro Fabrication & Coatings Corporation (CFCC) was involved early in the project to secure the steel that was needed first in order to meet the aggressive timeline of the project. For CFCC, the orders started coming in early May: reinforcement for the roof, framing for air units, and plenty of painted guardrail. Schedule was always the top priority, ranging from weeks to days between order and delivery. On

multiple occasions, an early morning phone call would result in a completed delivery that very afternoon. Speed and flexibility are two hallmark traits CFCC has always held and the Puritan project was their opportunity to shine. The newly added second shift in Pittsfield proved to be invaluable in hitting critical production milestones, while Georgetown worked tirelessly on maintaining commitments toward other projects. Project manager Mark Hansen closely coordinated with shop supervisor Craig Chambers to match production to site needs. After a massive team effort and more than 2,000 shop work hours, the fabrication portion of the Puritan project closed out at 1.14 productivity and no safety incidents. With this project delivered safely and on time, Cianbro Fabrication & Coatings Corporation is ready for the next project!



In Memory of

Mac Cianchette n

By Tom Stone


n order to fully appreciate Mac Cianchette and all of the blessings he brought to us as a colleague, family member, or friend, and to best appreciate his contributions in life and business, one needs to understand how he lived his life and devoted himself to others. Family, Cianbro, and fun were all priorities in Mac’s life, and in whatever order the day demanded, brought balance to Mac as he lived his life to the fullest. Not many would undertake a trek from Washington state to Maine through Canada on a new and untested snow machine – but Mac did. There are also few of us who would maneuver a motorcycle westward from Maine to Sturgis, South Dakota for an annual bike rally – or down to Daytona Beach, Florida for Bike Week. Others wouldn’t purchase a motorhome in Arizona to drive back to Maine, or go salmon fishing in Alaska with their dad and brothers. Yet Mac did. He made all these adventures come true. Outside of his once-in-a lifetime trips, Mac also enjoyed recreational time with week-long snowmobile excursions around the Gaspé Peninsula, boating and camping on Moosehead Lake, and the seemingly endless renovations and improvements at his family home on Great Moose Lake – a place where family, friends and neighbors were always welcome. As dedicated, focused, and hard-working as Mac was, he liked to have (lots of) fun and always made room to enjoy life with those he held dear. Mac’s long and distinguished biography began on May 25, 1951, in Waterville, Maine when he was born into a large, close-knit and hardworking family to Carl and Maureen (Davis) Cianchette. Mac came home to older siblings Janice, Brian, and Carleen, and was later joined by two younger siblings, Jill and Steven. In 1969, Mac graduated from the former Warsaw High School located in Pittsfield, Maine where he grew up and furthered his education by attending Maine Maritime Academy. Mac graduated in 1973 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nautical Science. Despite his education and training as a mariner, Mac gave up the high seas tradition upon graduation and made his career with Cianbro Corporation, the company started by his father Carl in post-war 1946, formerly Carl E. Cianchette, Inc. Early in his career, Mac worked on many projects up and down the East Coast. Later on, he undertook several senior management roles – all totaling 44 years of dedicated and loyal service to 44


the company. Mac also served on the Cianbro Board of Directors for 18 years until the time of his death. In addition, externally Mac volunteered his time for several other professional organizations which include the Maine Maritime Alumni Association and Board of Trustees, Associated General Contractors, the Town of Hartland Planning Board, and the Pine Tree Camp. Each of these organizations were extremely important to Mac. Mac loved working with people and the feeling was reciprocated. Mac was loyal, transparent, and always looked for the good in any situation no matter how controversial or unpleasant. To all who knew him and had the benefit of working with him, Mac was the consummate professional and was often sought out by business partners for advice, friendship, and counsel. His successful career and life are attributed to many things including a balanced and calm demeanor, always focusing on what was important, and always choosing to do what was right – not what was easy. When it came to the Cianbro family, nothing meant more to Mac than company culture. Being born into the company’s founding family, Mac learned the core values early on that became the foundation of the growing company: treat people with dignity and respect – even if delivering bad news; make the best decisions possible for the company, not yourself; and follow through and meet each commitment you make.

In the mid-1980’s, then President Chuck Cianchette (and Mac’s uncle) asked Mac to be the project manager for the construction of a 40MW wood-fired power plant in Stratton, Maine. Mac protested at first, insisting he didn’t know anything about building boilers and that most of his work involved building bridges or piers. Chuck said “Mac, the people trust you. I’m not asking you to build the boiler…I’m asking you to manage our people, manage the subcontractors, and manage the owner. Let those experienced ‘build the job’.” The project was successfully completed under Mac’s steady leadership in 1989. Over the course of his career, Mac took on many demanding and delicate roles as the company continued to grow. Sometimes a scout, sometimes a field general, Mac was a wise and competent leader and always first to be called upon when fences needed mending or when Cianbro needed a trusted advocate. With the acquisition of Curran & LaVoie, Mac was asked to merge two companies’ cultures into one and, then later, to oversee Cianbro’s expansion into North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic region. No small feat. As Mac’s career advanced, the positions he held increased in responsibility to include Northern New England Regional Manager, Vice President, and Senior VP of Operations. With his breadth of experience and ability to communicate

easily with others, Mac was often asked to develop insightful relationships with potential joint venture partners. It never took Mac long to determine if a meeting was going to lead to opportunity or if it “just wasn’t the right fit.” He had an uncanny ability to understand the true character and intent of those he interacted with in business. Based on his values and strong moral compass, Mac always made the best decisions for Cianbro. Following a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer, Mac passed away at his home on Great Moose Lake while in the comforting care of his family on November 21, 2019. Mac was predeceased by his parents. He is survived by his partner and loving wife of 36 years, Judy Cianchette, his children Aaron, Megan, and Nicole, four grandsons and three granddaughters, as well as many nieces, nephews and other family members. Mac is survived by brothers Brian and Steven Cianchette, and their spouses, as well as sisters Janice, Carleen, and Jill, and their spouses. Mac’s honesty, sincerity, and direct approach earned him the respect and trust of everyone who knew him. He was a rare person, deeply loved by many, and his tremendous presence will be missed.

Farewell Mac. You will forever remain in our hearts.
