Renier's flight design team planning the MPW Hangar
The sky’s the limit for MPW Industrial Services! Renier Construction hosted a groundbreaking ceremony last month at MPW's private hangar at John Glenn Columbus International Airport. The hangar is one of just three privately owned hangars at Port Columbus and will comprise 52,000 square-feet upon completion this fall.
MPW Industrial Services CEO Monte Black spoke about the opportunities this new hangar will allow the company, as well as the company’s long-standing relationship with Renier. Other speakers included Elaine Roberts, Port Columbus president and CEO, Don DePerro, Columbus Chamber of Commerce president and Eileen Goodman, Moody Nolan partner, director of interior design.

Auto Body Collision & Glass
Renier Construction is assisting Auto Body Collision & Glass with a 6,100 s.f. addition to their Mill Run location. This expansion will provide 16 additional bays for auto collision repairs, doubling the capacity of this location. Before breaking ground, Renier discovered the underground electric that serviced the body shop would have to be relocated. Thanks to the swift actions of the crew, this was accomplished with only a few minutes of electrical disruption. The expansion is expected to be completed in September of this year.

When did you join the Renier team?
I joined Renier in April, 2014.
How did you first learn about Renier? And why did you want to work here?
During my job search for a different construction company, a former college classmate mentioned to me that Renier was looking for estimators. My previous employer was a “hard bid” construction company that entailed long hours, high amounts of stress and a roller coaster of failure and reward. After learning about Renier’s work process, I knew my previous skills during design and pre-construction could be put to use and be valuable to the company.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
Working alongside architects, engineers and subcontractor consultants as an equal team member to produce a design that’s not only functional, but also affordable for an owner.
Which three words would you use to describe the culture at Renier?
Authentic, fair, smart.
What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learned while at Renier?
Trusting others' opinions.
When you aren’t working, how do you like to spend your time?
My wife and I love to travel and visit new places, meet new people and experience different cultures. I’m also a voracious reader. I read everything - books, magazines, newspapers.
Tell us one thing about you most people don’t know.
I still make out my taxes by hand with pen and pencil; no computer.
Ryan Konst, vice president of Schaefer, a structural engineering firm, explains that working with Renier Construction is more than a business agreement – it’s a partnership.
“We needed more space and didn’t have time to waste. Renier completed our expansion in four months. Their disciplined approach saved our retail season.”
“We expanded rapidly and changed design of the building multiple times during the process. Renier never flinched. As we grow, we continue to rely on Renier.”
“Renier used their creativity in our building. There is no wasted space, it’s very inviting and they were able to build at or below budget.”
“Renier takes the hassle out of the construction process….they make it easy. We’ve worked together for 15 years and I always receive the same high-quality on every job. I can’t imagine there is anyone better with the details.”
“The fact that they completely fulfill all the commitments they make to us is awesome. They do what they say they will do.”
“I have found Renier to care about completion of each project within the agreed upon timeframe and budget. Even more so, I have found them to genuinely care about the job as if it were their own.”
