Shingobee has begun construction of a Paradise Car Wash and Detail Center in Maple Grove, MN. Located on Elm Creek Boulevard (the former Champps restaurant site), the building will be 15,600 square feet in size, providing a tunnel wash, three detail bays, a customer lounge and support areas. Construction began in mid-August and is scheduled for completion in early 2015.
On September 30th, Shingobee and the Minnesota Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MNOSHA) signed a Cooperative Compliance Partnership agreement to provide monitoring of the Paradise Car Wash project. Officials from MNOSHA Compliance, Associated Builders and Contractors Minnesota/North Dakota chapter (MN/ND ABC), and Shingobee Builders, gathered at the construction site to mark the initiation of the partnership.
Shingobee Builders is the first company to achieve Level 3 Cooperative Compliance Partnership under MNOSHA’s partnership program with the Minnesota chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors. Level 3 is the peak level of such partnerships, with applicants striving to be an industry leader with a very comprehensive safety and health program. The partnerships acknowledge the importance of providing a safe, healthful work environment in construction and seek a working relationship that creates mutual trust and respect among all parties – including project owners and construction workers – involved in the construction process.
