We are pleased to announce the unveiling of Carroll County High School’s new multi-sport athletic facility. The grand opening was a little damp but that did not stop the school from celebrating homecoming in their brand new facility. The school was also selected to host 2015 KHSAA District and Regional Soccer Tournament games. The new facility features home and visitor seating, press box, concessions, field house, turf field and synthetic multi-lane running surface. Congratulations CCHS Panthers!
Now in full use is the Sterile Processing Department at North Bay Hospital in New Port Richey, FL. This SPD features 2,500 sq ft of working space that houses multiple sterilizers. The renovation included demolition of existing items, new flooring, mechanical, walls, doors, paint, and ceilings.
The New Sterile Processing Department was just part of a series of department upgrades completed at North Bay Hospital. We are looking forward to the start of the Emergency Department expansion and renovation on the North Bay Campus.
Under the Hardhat
Timothy “Joe” Branham has been part of the Wehr Constructors family for 21 years. As a superintendent, Joe has overseen projects such as the one he considers his favorite – the Salvation Army Center of Hope in Louisville, Kentucky. His most challenging, yet most fun project, was erecting cell phone towers. Joe is currently working on the Filson Historical Society expansion project in Old Louisville.
Regarding his hobbies and interests, Joe’s favorite hobby is fascinating and quite unique: “I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, falconry, and bee keeping. I became a falconer in 1991 after finding and convincing a master Falconer to take me on as an apprentice. After passing all the requirements I trapped my first redtail hawk, a Broadwing, and hunted with him for the next three years and released him back into the wild. I was then a General Falconer and able to expand in falconry and took an Eyas Coopers Hawk from the nest and hunted with short wing hawks for a few years. Short wings, or accipiters, are harder to train and handle and require much more time which meant keeping her with me at work. Thanks to Wehr Constructors I was able to do that resulting in what I feel was the best trained short wing in Indiana. After seven years I was promoted to Master class falconer and was given my first long wing, a Peregrine Falcon and worked and trained falcons for several years. I currently hunt with a ten year old North American Goss Hawk from Wyoming. I have had the pleasure of working with and handling birds ranging from the small Kestrel to the Bald Eagle and most everything in between.”
