BATON ROUGE, La. – MMR is proud to be recognized by the Pelican Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) for its work on several notable projects. MMR received two Excellence in Construction awards, the highest honor, and one Merit award, the second highest honor. ABC’s Excellence in Construction Awards program recognizes the nation’s most innovative and high-quality construction projects.

Winning Projects:


EXCELLENCE: MMR Constructors, Inc. Gray Wolf Compressor Station

MMR performed the electrical and instrumentation portion of construction for the Greenfield Gray Wolf Compressor Station in Douglas, Wyoming. The project involved several challenges, including performing much of the work in sub-zero temperatures, in a remote location, and meeting numerous engineering challenges due to the complex design of the systems. These challenges were overcome with zero-safety related incidents during the more than 17,000 work-hours needed to finish the project.

EXCELLENCE: MMR Constructors, Inc. GSU 1, 2 & 3 Bus Duct Replacement Project

MMR demoed existing bus ducts from three GSU units and replaced them with a cable system. A temporary transformer was required for GSU-1 due to worldwide delays in shipping and production for key components. MMR worked diligently and strategically while facing multiple hurdles due to COVID-19. New and innovative safety measures were developed to ensure the crew’s health and safety.
