Star Excavating wins Award of Excellence

Posted: Friday, October 22, 2010

The Associated Builders and Contractors of Indiana awarded Star Excavating with the Heavy Construction Award of Excellence.  The winning project was a Design-Build project for Red Gold.  Red Gold produces many of the tomato paste products in stores today and was in need of a 20 million gallon lagoon in Orestes, Indiana.  Star designed and constructed this lagoon on a barren wasteland, developed a wetland area, and wildlife habitat as well.  Pictured in the photo, from left to right are: Doug Boone, Brandon Knecht, Al Beghtel, Lon Knecht, Dallas Conrad, and Mike Herrmann.
