We are proud of all that the construction industry does for our state. Our skilled men and women keep Ohio going with their hard work. The proof is all around us, in every one of our communities.
The following four projects showcase all the ways that the construction industry supports our state’s progress and touches every aspect of Ohioans’ lives.
Beaver Excavating: First Energy Tinkers Creek Stream Restoration
The Ohio construction industry powers our state. The First Energy Tinkers Creek Stream Restoration project helped protect two high-voltage power line towers, which were threatened by worsening erosion. In addition to partially relocating Tinkers Creek, Beaver Excavating secured the banks of the creek by clearing debris, building up the creek slopes and planting thousands of plants.
Beaver Excavating was founded in 1953. Named after “Natures Engineer,” Beaver Excavating is known as being experts in earthmoving and construction projects.
JR Jurgensen: Lanes Mill Bridge
Without the construction industry, we wouldn’t have safe roadways to keep us connected. The Lanes Mill Bridge project is the largest bridge project JR Jurgensen has taken on to date. To complete this design-build project, they used 800 tons of asphalt, 5,000 cubic yards of earthwork fill and 150,000 pounds of reinforcing rebar.
JR Jurgensen was founded in 1934. They specialize in heavy highway construction, aggregate and asphalt production, tank storage, asphalt paving, milling, storm and sewer.
Ohio CAT: Pro Football Hall of Fame
Our industry creates memorable venues with state-of-the-art features. Ohio CAT is the official construction equipment provider for the Pro Football Hall of Fame as well as the Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals and Columbus Crew. They provide the quality products needed to construct the venues we Ohioans know and love.
Ohio CAT was founded in 1945. The Columbus-based company provides new and used CAT equipment, rentals, engines, parts and service.
Igel Co: OSU Wexner Medical Center
Construction crews are responsible for making the best healthcare facilities possible for the wellbeing of our residents. Igel Co. has led many multi-phase projects for hospitals throughout the state, most notably for Wexner Medical Center. The crews took the unique needs of health care facilities in mind and maintained safe access to the hospital, even in the midst of construction, so that staff could continue to treat their patients.
George J. Igel & Co., Inc was founded in 1911. What began as a “trucking” company has now grown to be a full-service construction company.
