One of Cyma Builders & Construction Managers’ finest Superintendents, Henry Burhenne, successfully passed the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP), Safety Trained Supervisor in Construction (STSC) Exam on September 9th, 2016. The STSC is a national recognized third party safety certification for those with supervisor responsibilities in construction. In the past twenty years, the responsibilities of safety professionals have expanded. Safety issues have become more complex and today’s safety professionals must be continually better qualified. BCSP credential holders are among the most highly trained, educated, and experienced individuals in the safety field. Currently, the BCSP has only 6,000 individuals who actively hold STSC certification.
Henry has been a Superintendent with the Cyma Builders & Construction Managers for over 10 years and a member of the Local 158 Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters for 31 years. Mike Quinn, A safety professional that works with Henry, said, “Henry Burhenne is the true definition of a professional superintendent. The way he deals with the client (JNJ), the subcontractors and his fellow employees demonstrates his professionalism and knowledge of the business. Henry can effectively communicate construction needs to the pharmaceutical client. He is the perfect bridge between subcontractors and end-users. His understanding of construction in the pharmaceutical industry is integral in conducting day to day operations. It is a pleasure to work with Henry on a daily basis.” Henry has set the example for others to follow and his STSC certification has only increased his already esteemed leadership.
Local to our west coast presence, Cyma Builders & Construction Managers completed a $500,000 Oven Room construction project for a confidential Fortune 500 Pharmaceutical firm in Vacaville, California. During this job, which consisted of 500 SQ.FT. of work and a very aggressive timeline, the client required renovation of this existing manufacturing space.
The facility owned existing ovens to cure the product; however, they had been walled off to create additional space from previous renovation. The ovens were opened back up to the existing space and two new rooms were created – a new room for the ovens as well as a transitional room from the existing space to the oven room to serve as an airlock. After years of neglect, the oven needed a complete electrical and mechanical overhaul. All the electrical, HMI and chart recorder panels were refurbished and the existing air handling units and ductwork were tested for leaks as well as received new inline HEPA filters.
In addition, new terminal HEPA filters, LED lighting, stainless steel sliding doors, and epoxy flooring were installed in the two new rooms. Due to the strict timeline, the equipment was expedited and construction activities had to be uniquely phased to meet the deadline. The project was delivered on time and under budget to meet the client’s schedule.
