Flintco Receives National Partnering Award from AGCA

Tulsa-based Flintco, Inc. has been honored by the Associated General Contractors of America as a Special Recognition Winner of the 2007 Marvin M. Black Excellence in Partnering Award.
The award was given based on Flintco’s successful partnering program on the $93.5 million Federal Correctional Institution-Medium Security project Flintco constructed for the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Pollock, La.
“Flintco has been committed to the principles of partnering before it became an industry ‘buzz’ word,” Tom Maxwell, CEO of The Flintco Companies, Inc. said in a release.
Partnering is a process of engaging all parties vested in the project from its inception throughout development to assure ongoing focus on the project goals and continuous improvement of delivery to benefit the project.
This award winning Federal Correctional Institution-Medium Security project is located on 123 acres and was commissioned by the Federal Bureau of Prisons. It comprises 14 separate structures including three general housing buildings comprised of four levels each and a two-story special housing unit. It also includes an outside security administration building, health services and vocational training buildings, a factory warehouse building, a laundry and commissary building, maintenance shops, food services and dining facility for staff and inmates, a recreation building, ball fields and a central utility plant to serve all buildings.
The Oklahoma City office of Rees Associates, Inc. provided the architectural design for the project.
The Marvin M. Black Excellence in Partnering Awards were presented by AGC President Harry Mashburn at a special AGC Partnering Awards luncheon held March 21st during the AGC of America’s 88th annual convention at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. Approximately 600 people attended the presentation.
