$25k Messer grant fuels renovation project for Nashville organization
The Messer Construction Co. Foundation recently presented a $25,000 grant to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee (BBBS Middle Tennessee), an organization that strives to provide children facing adversity with enduring and professionally supported relationships that change their lives for the better. BBBS Middle Tennessee plans to use the funding to renovate its current office space into a multiuse meeting room – The Messer Mentoring Center – which will allow for onsite training and activities for children, parents, and mentors. “Several of our Nashville employees have already invested their time and energy to give back to this important community resource, and we are thrilled to join them as a company to support the organization’s efforts with this grant,” said Tom Lampe, Messer Construction Co. vice president and Nashville region leader. “We are proud to be able to provide the funds needed for the Messer Mentoring Center, as it is important infrastructure to the organization’s overall efforts.” The grant was sponsored by Messer Senior Project Executive Chris Steigerwald, who has served as a big brother and is a member of the organization’s board of directors. He will also provide consulting during planning for the renovation project. “This organization has done incredible things for the Middle Tennessee community,” Steigerwald said. “I am very excited to watch as it continues to expand its current facility to better meet the needs of the children here.” In only its 11th year of existence, the Messer Foundation this year donated its 900,000th dollar to community organizations from across the company’s nine regions of operation.

Messer’s plans for growth, safety featured in Wall Street Journal
Messer was recently featured in a Wall Street Journal story about how contractors are dealing with the construction industry’s skilled labor shortage. Messer Senior Vice President Mark Luegering is quoted in the article and details some of the methods the company is using to grow its craft force – from 425 to 500 people – and keep its jobsites safe. Luegering said Messer is offering cash incentives to employees who recruit new workers, and he cited the use of prefabrication as a way to limit the number of people on jobsites and foster safety and quality. "The primary benefit--and there are many of them--because of the worker shortage, it's a way to address that concern by having products built in a plant," Mr. Luegering said. "Our goal is to reduce the numbers of craft workers on the job site so that what you have there is easier to manage in a controlled environment." Messer has used prefabrication on several of its projects, including at The Christ Hospital Health Network’s $190 million Joint and Spine Center project in Cincinnati. Prefabrication has been utilized for restroom units, mechanical racks and more, resulting in a wide range of benefits, including safety, quality, schedule efficiency and waste reduction.
