Shingobee Builders recently completed construction of the Paradise Car Wash and Detail Center in Maple Grove, MN, a project that was constructed under a Cooperative Compliance Partnership agreement with Minnesota Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MNOSHA).
The Partnership provided for frequent safety and health site survey visits, which were conducted in a cooperative manner with Shingobee and its subcontractors. MNOSHA conducted 4 site visits during the course of this project, and any hazards identified were corrected immediately.
MNOSHA Safety Investigator Lisa Hollingsworth provided safety direction and education to Shingobee and ABC representatives at the jobsite
The facility is a 15,600 sq. ft. carwash with a detail bay and exterior vacuums. The building has a concrete foundation with block, structural steel, precast, structural stud arch framing, EIFS, and a flat built up roof.
The project started August 11, 2014, and was completed January 30, 2015. The project used 24 subcontractors on site. There were 90 personnel including subcontractors working on site during the entire project. The total number of hours worked including subcontractors was 13,000. There were 25 hours spent training on safety and health orientations. There was one safety and health orientation given each week.
Stacy Gleason, Safety Director for Shingobee Builders, stated these benefits from the partnership: “This partnership is always beneficial. We received helpful information on scaffolding rules and leading edge work on the roof. Lisa is excellent at the “teaching” moments. We can’t wait to enter another project!”
Shingobee is currently building another Car Wash and Detail Center for Paradise in Woodbury.
