AGC Awards Staker Parson

Press Release

February 1, 2012

The Associated General Contractors of Utah (AGC) honored dozens of contractors, suppliers and individuals who excel in areas of teamwork, safety, innovation and quality at its annual awards breakfast held Jan. 28 at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City. Staker Parson Companies was among those honored, taking home two awards.

Western Rock Products received the Best Rural Highway Project Award for its work on the Utah Department of Transportation’s (UDOT) Milepost 46 to Kanab, US-89 reconstruction. UDOT nominated Western Rock to receive the award, commending the company for its safe completion of the challenging project. Western Rock had 120 days to complete the project and, through careful preparation and planning, along with crews working around the clock, they achieved all available time bonuses. The project included extensive bridgework, earthwork and headwalls. The award was accepted by Western Rock Project Manager Shannon Davis.

Vaughn Pack, a Staker Parson employee for 37 years, was honored as Highway Project Manager of the Year. Pack has managed UDOT projects across the state from Davis County to St. George. He was the project manager for UDOT’s I-15; Farmington to Gordon Ave. project, which was presented with the National Asphalt Pavement Association’s prestigious Sheldon G. Hayes award in 2010, recognizing it as the best asphalt pavement project in the United States. Pack’s supervisor, Brandon LeFevre, said, “The technical and practical skill, dedication, responsibility and integrity required to win an award of this magnitude would almost certainly not have been achieved without the integral leadership of Vaughn on the project.”

“We are honored to receive these awards from the AGC,” said Scott Parson, Staker Parson president and CEO. “These awards are a reflection of our commitment to be The Preferred Source and our world-class team of employees represented by the award recipients.”
