Congratulations to the team that helped to make this project come to life.
Every year Indianapolis hosts something called the Min-Marathon. Yes, that little race that thousands show up for every year. Not only do runners, and walkers alike, show up from all over, but so do the volunteers. Joe Spitz has been putting together a volunteer crew for years to help out at the Mini-Marathon. A big thank you to Joe Spitz, Wes Nicholson, Tony Hentrup, and Will Parker as they stepped up to the plate this year and a great time was had by all. Volunteering, great weather, good company, what more could you ask?
Congratulations to the Team Players of the Quarter for the months of April, May, and June of 2017! Ben Imel, Dave Bates, Rick Gilmore, and Tara Shaul! Thank you all for everything you do for Wurster Construction! Check out some of the comments!
“I would like to nominate Ben Imel for his hard work on the HRH Brownsburg project. He works countless hours and days, always willing to stay late to cover the project. Has been helping more on the payable side of the project as well.”
“Dave Bates for his work at FACE Animal Clinic. He continues to do an outstanding job keeping this project on schedule. I know he’s been working long days and nearly every weekend”
‘Rick Gilmore. He works every day pretty much and only gets a day off on holidays. Without him I don’t know what we’d do at UH and RH.’
“I would like to nominate Rick Gilmore. Those guys put in a ton of work at UH / Riley keeping the hospital happy and then take care of the other misc. things we put on them like dustwalls and some demo on one of my projects. He is also installing some monitors for me out at IUH West in the evenings even though it is pretty far out of his way. Rick just takes care of everyone without complaints and he can be trusted to do it correctly. Thanks.”
“I would like to nominate Tara Shaul for Team Player. Tara has worked hard on improving the design of Wurster’s marketing materials and as we know working on an RFP, RFQ, etc. she is taking information from different employees then puts everything together to make the proposal look amazing. She is very talented on designing! “
Not only has she helped the marketing dept. but she is there to help in any way she can. Even sharing her constant smile gets you to smile. Tara has come a long way since she started and I feel that it needs to be recognized. She is a great Team Player!
“Tara Shaul-Tara continues to improve the imagine and production of our marketing material. As often happens, at crunch time Tara is willing to put in the extra hours and recently at one of those “pinch points”, volunteered to change her vacation schedule to assist if needed. And finally, she does have to work a lot with Kevin!!”
“I want to nominate Tara Shaul. People forget how important first impressions are and Tara presents a wonderful first impression of Wurster Construction whether on the phone or at the front desk.”
Every year CCS allows each company the opportunity to honor and recognize one of their own for their safety efforts on the job. The criteria for the award is on a per company basis limited to one honoree. The Outstanding Craftsperson Award for 2017 goes to Duke Newlin! As part of the honor, Duke received a Carhartt hooded winter jacket embroidered with the CCS logo and “Outstanding Craftsperson 2017”. Congratulations on a well deserved award Duke!
The CCS Awards Banquet was held Thursday May 4th this past year at the convention center in downtown Indianapolis. The annual banquet honors excellence in safety on the job to various companies and individuals. Wurster Construction was fortunate, and honored, to be presented with a Zero Injury Award for 2016! Another year with no injuries! Keep up the ‘safe’ work!
Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 350 of the 937 construction fatalities recorded in 2015. Recently, Wurster Construction participated (company-wide) in the 2017 National Safety Stand Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. The National Fall Prevention Stand-Down raises fall hazard awareness across the country in an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries.
The Safety Stand-Down was a voluntary event for Wurster. In collaboration with Safety Management Group to talk directly to our employees and subcontractors specially about fall protection an safety. The national program offered Wurster Construction the opportunity to have a conversation with our project teams on all our jobsites about hazards, protective methods, and the company’s safety policies and goals.
Wurster Construction is pleased to have received a certificate of recognition for participating with the US Department of Labor and OSHA in completing the National Safety Sand Down in 2017.

Congratulations to the Team Player of the Quarter for January, February, and March of 2017, Mark Kozloski! Check out some of the comments!
“It is year end, which is a hectic time for the accounting department, yet he still turns around my job numbers, budgets, and other reports in a very timely manner, even if it means staying late or coming in on Saturday.”
“I would like to nominate Mark Kozloski for team player of the quarter. Mark is always on top of things from time sheets to payroll to budgets etc.. He runs here and there gathering all the information needed from multiple places and people, tracking them down, making sure everything ‘adds up to the sum’. With it being year-end, more is added to his plate and he balances everything nicely. He helps to make the company run smoothly!”
Well deserved Mark. Thank you for all you do for Wurster Construction. Congratulations!
