We’ve got an Excellent Leader on Hand!

John Sleeper, Vice President of estimating and Pre-Construction here at Bruner Corp, recently completed the Builders Exchange Executive Leadership Excellence Experience (BXLX) officially becoming a member of the BXLX Class of 2012. The BXLX is a nine-month program for senior level executives in the commercial construction industry offered by the Builders Exchange of Central Ohio. This year, Sleeper was among 20 participants in the program.

When asked why he would recommend BXLX, Sleeper responded “This was an excellent opportunity to continue to learn new things from people with a variety of different experiences throughout the industry and the business world in general. It also offers the chance to connect with peers and competitors throughout the local industry.”

BXLX is supported by a grant from the Builders Exchange Foundation and offers education and coaching by nationally-recognized experts in construction leadership and business development. Bruner Corporation is a long-time member of the Builders Exchange of Central Ohio, a trade association serving the local commercial construction industry with 800 member firms.

And the Award Goes To…

The BX Craftsmanship award judges met recently and selected nine individuals to be honored with a 2012 BX Craftsmanship award, and Bruner’s Doug Linnabary was one of the nine who received it! We would like to congratulate Doug and his team on the high-quality work that they performed on the Project Noble Data Center. Specific to the award, Doug was recognized for the installation of HVAC piping in the mechanical room and CRAH gallery at the Project Nobel Data Center.

Since 1964, the BX Craftsmanship Awards Program has recognized the importance of craftspeople for the quality work they provide to the local construction industry. The Craftsman recipients were selected from 29 nominations of work completed throughout the Central Ohio area during the past year.

We are proud of Doug, and expect his hard work and success to continue to be awarded in the future.

Visitors to Columbus’ Santa Maria can safely explore thanks to Jim Clark and Bruner Corporation

The Santa Maria Ship Museum in downtown Columbus welcomes all visitors to its 21st year in exhibition. In preparation of the 2012 tour season, improvements were made to the riverfront destination. One of these improvements included new safety rail installations attached to the

Visitors Center dock. With donated steel from Bruner Corporation, Jim Clark, Senior Design Engineer, spent his weekends designing & constructing the necessary safety rails. The challenge was positioning the rail posts deep enough below the dock to securely stabilize them. The finished design resulted in new, safe & secure dockside chain railings. Several Bruner employees also contributed to the effort including Rocky Carr, Purchasing Manager, and Kenny Brown, Fabrication Shop Foreman.

On behalf of Santa Maria, Inc., and the ship’s governing board of officers; Jim invites you to visit the ship this season. More information on tour hours and rates can be found at Learn about the experience & adventures of our city’s namesake, and while you’re there, take notice of Jim’s hard work!
