New Project Award: Norfolk & Southern

Midwest Mosaic is going to work for Warren Buffett! 

We just received a subcontract from Ohio Valley based Dunlop & Johnston to provide tile and and installation labor at Norfolk and Southern Railroad's (NYSE:NSC) Bellvue, Ohio facility.  The project features two pairs of employee bathroom and showers plus a washroom in the perch of the yard switching tower.  How cool is that!?

At nearly 4000 square feet, the project will keep a crew of three working for about a month.  Onward job creation!

We are pleased to add Mr. Richard Fajardo to the project to assist compliance with two programs; 1) Ohio Bureau of Worker Compensation Drug Free Workplace and 2. E-Rail Safe, a Homeland Security program. Fajardo writes on HR and management matters at Motivated Innovation, and is an expert in these things.

In 2007, as a bet on the impending recovery, Buffett acquired a stake in NSC through his flagship fund, Berkshire Hathaway.  Mr. Warren knows a good value when he sees it. While the recovery may not be as strong as he anticipated, we knew we had a good value all along, and we're glad to have caught his attention.

Feature Project; The Tower of Shower (Video)

About the time you were finishing off the last of your Thanksgiving leftovers and were beginning to put up your 2011 Christmas lights, we put the finishing touches on this edition of the Musings Feature Project, The Tower of Shower.

It is now April 2.  The clients, who wish to remain anon, have been happy customers for going on four months now.  Wow! how the time flies. Meantime we have been out doing what LOTC's (Low-Overhead-Trade-Contractors) do, spending time in the field, getting dirty, getting tired, and just plain having fun not having to report to the same old cube day after day to pick up doing the same old same old.

Since the time of Yule, the crew and I have been out in the mud the blood and the beer; finishing up the Mouse House, adding first one Kroger now on the third, as well as stops at the Historic St Patricks, the Bakery Building, and a reprise at the Manor.

As in our last feature, the Forsyth-Vaquero, we bring you loads of content; photos and video. Enjoy.  And be sure to hit the like button above and leave comments below.
