Hollenbach Construction Inc.
In the construction industry, you are only as good as your last project. That fact is further compounded when a company is located in a largely rural area. Small town residents have long memories and a sense of community that is often missing in larger urban areas. Tim Little, president of Hollenbach Construction Inc. (HCI), is proud of his company’s reputation in the industry and is committed to giving his clients top-quality services, outstanding projects at a reasonable price, and going one step beyond for his clients.
The family-owned company is located in Boyertown, Pa., a small community of 4,000 people located about 50 miles northeast of Philadelphia. From there, HCI has been building high-quality projects for over four decades.
HCI’s highly-trained crews specialize in pre-construction services, design-build, construction management and general construction with an emphasis on pre-engineered metal buildings for commercial, industrial and institutional clients. HCI also offers clients outstanding work on additions, renovations and restorations to existing buildings as well as new multimillion dollar facilities.
Unique Construction for Retirement Community
In recent years, Little has focused the company’s energy by providing housing for the state’s burgeoning aging population with a series of projects in retirement communities across the state. Most recently, HCI completed a unique addition for the residents of the Phoebe Berks Retirement Village in Wernersville, Pa.
Little outlines the details on the project. “The customer came to us and wanted an activity center built on their property as an outdoor activity area for their residents. The only area they had with sufficient space was this huge retention basin. We built a 10,000-square foot deck over that.”
“On that deck is a 20-foot by 20-foot gazebo, a shuffleboard court, a bocce ball court, a putting green, a covered seating area resembling an old fashioned train stop and a general recreation area,” continues Little. “Everyone is thrilled with it, and it looks really sharp at night with the lighting that we installed. It’s completely unlike any project we have built before and we are all really pleased that it came out so well.”
HCI began work on the project in June and impressively completed construction in November 2011. “The foundation is comprised of cast-in-place concrete footings and piers, supporting precast concrete girders and beams with two-by-12 pressure treated lumber as the base deck structure and an Azek skirt board, which surrounds the base of the deck. The decking features composite redwood, accented by white vinyl railing with LED lights attached to each rail.”
Safety Program Wins Award
In addition to its unique and highly acclaimed work on the Village Activity Center, 2011 was a notable year for the company. HCI won an award from the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of eastern Pennsylvania. The company earned the silver level of ABC’s prestigious Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) program for 2011.
In order for a company to achieve ABC’s STEP silver level, among other requirements, a company must submit an analysis of its safety program including its safety rules, toolbox safety meetings, use of personal protective equipment, record keeping, accident investigation and new employee orientation.
“It truly is an honor and a privilege to be able to recognize Hollenbach Construction Inc. for their continued dedication to providing training and safe workplaces for their employees,” Kirk Pickerel, president and CEO of ABC, was quoted as saying. “These companies have used the STEP program to evaluate and build upon already stellar safety programs and become leaders in training and incident prevention. Indeed, these companies continue to strive for our most important goal: to send every construction industry employee home safe to their families, every day.”
Safety is taken very seriously at HCI. The company recently had four superintendents complete the Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHA 30 Certification Safety Training class. HCI is constantly training its employees and management in an effort to equip its staff on site with the knowledge of the most current safety regulations in order to maintain a safe job site.
As baby boomers continue to age, the need for senior facilities is going to continue to grow throughout the country. Tim Little and HCI have spent more than 20 years proving the team’s ability and earning its reputation for excellence to help build those new facilities. Hollenbach Construction Inc.’s striking work coupled with its impressive safety record is nothing short of a recipe for success.
