AGC SAN DIEGO CHAPTER'S INDUSTRY-WIDE
BLOOD DRIVE BREAKS RECORD!
AGC San Diego's Build and Serve Committee initiated a
construction industry-wide blood drive four years ago as
part of the committee's efforts to offer opportunities for the
construction industry to give back to its community. In 2011,
the effort resulted in 143 pints collected. In 2012 and 2013
respectively, the effort resulted in 174 and 230 pints collected.
But this year's blood drive exceeded all expectations.
After a two-day effort, a record 326 pints were collected!
To put this in perspective....at this time of year, San Diego
County hospitals use about 350 pints per day. Therefore,
the 2014 blood drive collected about 93 percent of the total
blood needed for the county for one day.
This summer's event will help save the lives of over 900
people; moreover, during the holidays when the San Diego
Blood Bank's supply drops - as it does in the summer months
- our drive is critical to help keep hundreds of people supplied with the blood they need during, and right after, the
Over 285 donors participated - most were employees of
AGC member firms. Nine AGC contractors allowed the San
Diego Blood Bank to use their facilities as donor sites and each
site had members of the committee serve as coordinators.
Each contractor also donated refreshments and food for those
that donated at their site. Special thanks to AGC San Diego
host companies: Acme Safety & Supply Corp.; EricksonHall Construction Co.; Gerdau Reinforcing Steel; PRAVA
Construction Services, Inc.; Sherwood Mechanical, Inc.;
Dynalectric Company; Helix Electric, Inc.; RQ Construction,
LLC; and TC Construction Co., Inc.
AGC San Diego Chapter thanks all its members throughout
San Diego County that took time out of their busy days to
donate. In addition, hospital patients in the San Diego most
assuredly appreciate AGC's generosity.

Tarlton Corp., a St. Louis-based general contracting and
construction management firm and a member of multiple AGC
chapters, is working for The Koman Group to help redevelop the
historic 700 Market building in downtown St. Louis. The renovated

Tarlton was awarded a contract for core and shell preconstruction services and renovation of the 130,000-sq-ft, distinctive
six-story building, one of the younger buildings on the National

named the inaugural winner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize for
his design of the building, which has been vacant since 2004.
Working with Koman and HOK, architect for the 700 Market
core and shell, Tarlton's scope of work includes demolition and
renovation of interior areas for common corridor and circulation
spaces, renovation of mechanical-electrical-plumbing systems,
elevator work, specialty metal refinishing and painting.
The site plaza at the north corner of the building is being
renovated and will include a water feature. The team also is
