Fabcon Precast picFabcon Precast develops a culture of continuous improvement as it works to increase its concrete panel-setting rate.

By Janice Hoppe-Spiers

As the specialist in manufacturing and erecting of precast concrete, Fabcon Precast is a leader when it comes to panel setting rates. However, the company is focused on continuous field improvements to increase its numbers.

Fabcon began its journey two years ago with the goal of doubling its setting rates. “What we are looking at is trying to improve upon how many wall panels we can set per crane-hour rented,” Continuous Improvement Specialist Angela Durant says. “We set our goals based on panel numbers versus buildings, which takes out the complexity because each building is vastly different than the next.”

White Builders feels a strong sense of purpose about each project it works on. “Our single greatest strength is that we believe what we do makes a difference,” says Marshall White, owner and president of the 40-year-old contractor based in Woburn, Mass.

“We are all shaped by the built environment, and we go into every project knowing that our work has an impact on the people who live and work in these spaces,” he adds. At the same time, the act of building is a collaborative, human endeavor and we hope to inspire the people we work with to realize their full potential.”

By Chris Kelsch

Though Shell McElroy was formed only a little more than three years ago, the company is long on construction experience – and relationships. President Jeff Shell and Senior Vice President Billy McElroy have known each other for years, having met at a top-100 Atlanta-area contractor in the 1990s.

When they decided to join forces in 2014, both brought a lot to the table with experience in the Atlanta area as well as relationships nurtured over the years. The tagline of the company is “Building A New Legacy,” and the pair has wasted no time in doing so. Their latest project is Encore Center, the new corporate headquarters of HD Supply in Atlanta. “This is our largest project so far,” Shell says. “We have received tremendous support from within the industry. From both the owners/developers side as well as the design side.”
