Project Manager with F.E. Moran
When the county employees enter the new Will County Sheriff’s Facility in late November of this year it is sure that many of them will appreciate the nice ambiance of the buildings. New fixtures, computers, flooring and so forth but I wonder how many of these good people will give a thought to what went into the creation of such a facility; the concept, the planning, the architecture and from our standpoint at FE Moran, the mechanicals.
Each step in producing the finished building is critical. It involves much cooperation between contractors, suppliers, foreman, project managers and installers.
Mark Tetrick the project manager for FE Moran has the responsibility of coordinating the sheet metal and piping for the project as FE Moran was the lead contractor for the piping, sheet metal and building controls.
Although this project is certainly not the largest one FE Moran has tackled, there is still an enormous amount of materials and equipment required to complete such a building.
Some of us employees get into the grind and don't think about the bigger picture. When we reflect, we realize what this facility means to the people who live and work in this county. Here is a nice facility that makes it possible for many people to be employed, being able to raise their families, pay their bills, and pay their taxes, which, in turn, educates the county's children and allows others to be employed.
There is a state of the art 911 center. It helps anyone and everyone in the county who may need emergency assistance, saving lives. What could be more crucial?
And of course all of us at FE Moran can appreciate their involvement with such a building reaping many of these same benefits as above.
In addition creating new relationships with vendors, contractors, equipment and control suppliers which gives us future references for new projects we may encounter.
So maybe next time we get caught up in the day-to-day struggles we face just pause for a moment and realize we are fulfilling a great need for a great many people. Contributing to our communities and to each other just by completing one project at a time.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to this new Will County Sheriff’s Facility!
