Building St. Louis

Edward S. Macias, Ph.D., executive vice chancellor, dean of Arts & Sciences and the Barbara and David Thomas Distinguished Professor in Arts & Sciences, welcomes guests to the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of St. Louis’ Build St. Louis Week 2007 kick-off event Oct. 22 at the Social Sciences/Law Building construction site. The AGC holds the event at a different site each year to honor the construction industry and its employees for the contribution they make to the St. Louis economy. Paul Shaughnessy, chairman of AGC’s board and president of BSI Constructors, said in his remarks, “AGC firms, and our workers, would not have the opportunity to demonstrate our skill and craftsmanship if we didn’t have institutions like this University who are committed to constructing some of the finest buildings in the country.” Tarlton Corp. is constructing the Social Sciences/Law Building.
