Premier Concrete Adds Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Plan

Tuesday, December 15, 2015 @ 11:12 AM
posted by Premier Concrete

Premier Concrete recently added a Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Plan to its already robust and growing list of employee benefits. Under the new SUB plan, Premier Concrete employees working on prevailing wage jobs—public or government contacts—qualify for this employee-funded savings account that provides supplemental pay during unemployment.

What is a SUB Plan?

According to SHRM, a Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Plan is a tax exempt, Section 501(c) (17) plan or trust established to provide pay to workers laid off due to a reduction in force or plant closing that supplements state unemployment insurance benefits.

The plan’s structure combines state unemployment benefits with supplemental unemployment to equal a laid off worker’s total wages prior to layoff. For instance, if the state unemployment benefit rate is $300 and the worker’s previous weekly pay was $600, the SUB would fund the trust with an additional $300 to ensure the worker receives full pay during layoff.

Breaking it Down

Prevailing wage jobs are compensated with a base salary plus fringe benefits. Employers may pay these fringe benefits in any way they choose (e.g., 401k, cash). Previously, Premier allocated fringe benefits to prevailing wage workers’ 401k account. These employees now have the option to allocate fringe benefits toward their SUB plan to ensure short-term financial security during an unexpected reduction in workforce due to specific projects and contracts ending or unfortunate weather.

More

SUB plans were initially introduced in the 1950s by unions of cyclical industries that frequently experience layoffs, such as the automotive and metal industries. This addition by Premier Concrete is progressive for the construction industry—there are only a handful of other companies providing this benefit in the state of Maryland.

“We recognize our employees as our greatest asset and highly value fair compensation,” said Premier Concrete Vice President Steve Workmeister. “Construction is a transient industry where our workload is affected by a variety of factors, thus impacting our workforce. Over the last year, we have been searching for a solution to provide employees with as much financial security as possible, should an unexpected need for layoffs occur. We are a family-owned business with family values and will continue to ensure we can support our dedicated and skilled employees as they support themselves and their families.”

In addition to the SUB Plan, Premier Concrete employees are entitled to 401k benefits, medical/dental/vision insurance, short-term disability, and vacation and holiday pay. To learn more about Premier Concrete career opportunities, visit www.premierconcrete.biz/careers/.

In partnership with North American General Contractors, Premier Concrete is working on a multiphase project for Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE). This project aims to convert a portion of the Fallsway Properties LLC parking lot into a new 155 kV switching station for BGE.

In phase one of this project, Premier will be working on the cable vault and the responsibilities include installing stone under the mat formation, furnishing and installing concrete reinforcing, constructing concrete walls, installing embeds, and applying topping slab. In the second phase of the project, Premier will be completing site work; responsibilities will include constructing drilled pier foundations, installing ramp foundations and a wall, and working on the 1,817-square-foot sidewalk along Constitution Street.

The project is a sub-part of BGE’s Electric Reliability Investment Initiative. Under this initiative, BGE is also working on other projects in the local area that will improve the electric distribution system. These improvements will help BGE upgrade the services they provide to Baltimore City customers by minimizing the frequency and duration of time that electric service is disrupted for their customers.

Construction for this project began in February 2015 and the construction is not scheduled to end until December 2015. To learn more about this project visit BGE’s website.

Celebrating the Anniverary of Everyman Theatre

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND—Just over a year ago, Premier Concrete worked alongside Lewis Contractors to restore the iconic Everyman Theatre. The renovation and reopening of the Theatre played an important role in the renaissance of a theater and arts district in downtown Baltimore’s Westside. This month marked the one-year anniversary of the Theatre’s first public performance in the newly renovated space.

The project consisted of extensive exterior and interior restoration and measures were taken to ensure the historical features of the property were preserved. The Everyman Theatre now features multiple performance spaces with modernized theatre audio/visual systems. Premier Concrete was responsible for the installation of new foundations, walls, flat work and elevated deck pours.

“The Everyman Theatre renovation was an exciting and meaningful project to be a part of,” says Premier Concrete Vice President, Steve Workmeister. “We are thrilled to see the Theatre thriving a year later, and wish them continued success in their new home for many years to come.”

Originally opened as The Empire in 1910, Everyman Theatre has been home to many different types of performances and entertainment, from vaudeville to burlesque to a 1,550-seat movie house. After falling into disrepair in 1990, the venue was donated to the Everyman Theatre in 2006. To learn more about the restoration of Everyman Theatre in the newly designated Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District, watch the commemorative video above, or visit www.everymantheatre.org.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND—With the award of yet another renovation project, Premier Concrete is working in partnership with Constantine Commercial Construction to expand what is commonly known as “The Examiner building” at 400 E. Pratt St. in downtown Baltimore.

The two-story expansion consists of a building addition that will extend the structure 35 feet closer to the street and increase overall square footage from 143,750 to 167,570 square feet, resulting in approximately 24,000 square feet of ground level retail and 24,500 square feet of class A office space on the second level. Major changes include improvements to the multi-tenant common corridors, lobbies, elevators and restrooms; and enhancements to the parking garage. Premier is contracted to install building foundations, slab on grade, slab on deck and other miscellaneous concrete site work.

Expected to be complete in June 2014, the renovation is part of the Downtown Baltimore Partnership Inc. new redevelopment plan to make Pratt Street more pedestrian friendly, improve sightlines and boost the downtown economy.

“Constantine Commercial Construction has provided us a wonderful opportunity to improve one of Baltimore’s landmark buildings,” says Premier Concrete Vice President Steve Workmeister. “Adding retail and restaurant tenants will make this area even more vibrant. We are excited to be on Constantine’s team and an integral part of this project.”

While the two ground floor restaurant tenants have yet to be announced, CPA firm, Ellin & Tucker confirmed it will be relocating to the new space and will become a significant tenant in the office space. By September 2014, Ellin & Tucker will occupy 31,000 square feet total on two floors, including the entire second floor and 7,000 square feet on the third floor.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND—Premier Concrete is working in concert with The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company to renovate the historic Rouse Company Building into a Whole Foods Market in Columbia, Md.

The four-floor structure will undergo extreme restoration and renovation, with plans to remove the second floor in order to create a double height space for the store. Whole Foods Market will occupy the main level, with a fitness center on the lower level.

Located on Lake Kittamaqundi, the former headquarters of the Rouse Company is an iconic centerpiece of downtown Columbia. Designed and built by renowned architect Frank Gehry for Columbia founder, James Rouse, the structure represents the pioneering vision Rouse had in building and creating the planned community of Columbia in the 1960s.

The introduction of a Whole Foods Market will be the first of its kind within proximity to downtown Columbia. The nearest Whole Foods Market is currently located in Harbor East in Baltimore.

“We are excited to be a part of the team bringing the first Whole Foods Market to the Columbia area,” says Premier Concrete Vice President, Steve Workmeister. “We look forward to the finished project and hope the community enjoys the new addition.”

The restoration and renovation project commenced in March 2013, with Premier Concrete joining the team in May. The project is expected to be complete by fall 2014.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND—Premier Concrete is working in concert with Lewis Contractors and Ziger/Snead Architects to renovate and reconstruct the stone house landmark in Druid Hill Park in Baltimore, Maryland. After almost two decades of vacancy, the stone house was falling apart. The roof collapsed, the stone walls were deteriorating and tree branches were growing through the windows. Premier Concrete was engaged to assist in the rehabilitation of the historic stone mansion.

The Parks & People Foundation seeks to create a community center at Druid Hill Park to provide educational, environmental and recreational programs, neighborhood meetings and special events. The board of Parks & People approved $12 million to reclaim the stone house and the surrounding 9 acres. Parks & People have a lease on the site for 55 years, and the organization plans to move their headquarters from the Stieff Silver Building to the land surrounding the Druid Hill Park mansion.

Premier Concrete President, Jim Workmeister, says, “It is a pleasure to work with such an experienced project team on the stone house landmark in Druid Hill Park. This project is another example of the Premier team helping shape Baltimore’s remarkable landscape.”
