|The Renier Blueprint|
A Quarterly E-Newsletter, June 2019
|Featuring: New Services Provided by Renier Construction |
|As a building owner with a new facility, a preventive maintenance program is likely at the bottom of your list of concerns. Your building is newly complete and your business is thriving & expanding. But then the fire sprinkler system needs its annual certification and you and your team are scrambling trying to find out what that entails and who handles it. Does this sound familiar?|
If you’re a Renier client, this can all be handled by our property management team of Lori Rose and Lee Page. This enhanced benefit Renier offers its clients takes the hassle out of managing your facilities’ needs as it ages. One call to Renier covers a comprehensive list of services including: quarterly site inspections, air conditioning & HVAC maintenance, landscape maintenance, plumbing/irrigation back flow valve inspections, fire extinguisher & fire alarm certification, oil interceptor cleaning, exterior window cleaning and of course, annual fire sprinkler system inspections & certification.
Just another service we can offer that’s a reflection of our core principle of Integrity. Some might call this unnecessary, but we call it the way we do business. Because at Renier, we’re not only building buildings, we’re building relationships.
|Hopkins Printing Expansion Complete|
Hopkins Printing expansion is complete! They remained open and completely able to attend to their customers without disruption of services. Additionally, all construction was coordinated around shipping and receiving schedules to avoid any interference with logistics.
As you can see from the finished photos, Renier matched the original building design aesthetics to ensure the addition blends seamlessly. The warehouse expansion features both precast concrete and metal walls to serve the client’s needs. The current addition increased the square footage by 33,600 sq. ft., bringing the location total to 108,280 sq. ft. This new space allowed for a nearly 40% increase in storage capacity and improved digital production areas.

Lee Page, Building Services/Project Superintendent:Q: How did you first learn about Renier? And why did you want to work here?
Q: When did you join the Renier team?
A: May of 2016
A: I saw their signs at various job sites. At the time I was a residential custom home builder and was looking to do something different, so commercial it was. Once I met Tom Rice and Bill Heifner, I felt like this was the place for me. Then I met the rest of the team, and I knew it was the place for me.
Q: What do you enjoy most about your work?
A: Better question would be, what do I hate most about my work? NOTHING! If I didn’t enjoy it I would be doing something else. I’ve been fortunate to have never had a job that I dreaded to get up and go to.
Q: Which three words would you use to describe the culture at Renier?
A: Honest, sincere and awesome.
Q: What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learned while at Renier?
A: Make it right no matter whose fault it is.
Q: When you aren’t working, how do you like to spend your time?
A: I help people. If someone needs help, all they need do is ask. Really, the only thing I have to offer anyone is my time. When opportunity permits, I like to go down to Kentucky to visit and fish.
Q: Tell us one thing about you that most people don’t know.
A: That I would do anything for them within my power.
|TOP GOLF TEAM BUILDING EVENT |
We celebrated our team by going to TopGolf for an evening of play. We couldn't golf without a little competition... Check out our "Winning Team" (who clearly spends WAY too much time golfing) and other photos, including the "But They Look Good" award, which went to the “not the best” scoring team (because if you can't golf well, you at least need to look good!) on our Instagram or Facebook channel.
|This video was taken at the Dayton Freight Lines job site in Lebanon, TN (near Nashville). The entire job site is sitting on solid fossiliferous limestone, basically clay and limestone that is so old it has become fossilized. This fossiliferous limestone is almost the same hardness as granite, and there is only 1” to 6” maximum of topsoil on the surface. Renier was required to hire a blasting contractor to create a workable site for proper excavation. The first two photos show the area before a blast and the same area after the blast. All of the blasts are at a minimum of 8 ft. deep, and the “blast swells” (aka rock piles) reach nearly 12 ft. in height. In all, the property will require blasting of over 200,000 cubic yards of rock. That a lot of blasting!|
