  • Fall protection measures aren’t just for outside. Systems are in place in this particular building to keep crews safe when it comes time to clean the skylight. Can you spy Nathan? He’s testing the trolley system that’s in place.

  • Some Oates folks, Jody Shaw and Travis Helmkamp, went on a shopping spree today! On behalf of APWA MO, they purchased toys and cleaning products with other APWA members to support Crisis Nursery. Roughly $4,500 was raised by APWA throughout the year to support such a worthy cause.

  • Structural Engineer Ben Christmann (center) pictured with SIUE engineering students. Ben, who is an engineer in Oates’ bridge department, is a project mentor for SIUE students. He helped them work through real-world design projects to give them insight into what they’ll experience once they enter the field.
