When our Clayco team finds a company that mirrors our mission and determination, we fortify that partnership by pooling resources on as many projects as possible. Vision Electric & Systems is one of Clayco’s excellent subcontractors that we have had the pleasure of working on several developments with. Subcontractors play a pivotal role by bringing multifaceted advantages and expertise across construction efforts.
Vision Electric is a full-service electrical contractor in O’Fallon, Missouri that has been operating since its founding in 2005. The company’s goal is to serve clients with the respect, integrity, and compassion they deserve. Vision Electric has been an asset to our Clayco team by helping us build Beyond These Walls and positively impact the communities where we operate.
Our teams helped build the NorthPark Distribution Center, which CRG also developed in partnership with American Realty Advisors. The 537,753-square-foot speculative distribution warehouse in St. Louis, Missouri, is located in NorthPark business park and has nine acres of additional land for expansion. Vision Electric also provided its services in the creation of some of our Amazon E-Commerce Centers. These facilities range in size from 500,000 square feet to 1,000,000+ square feet, with up to 1.2 million square feet of mezzanine space. Most recently, their team is working with ours on our new, 230,000 square foot St. Louis Clayco office.
There is no question about the effectiveness of our collaboration when we take on projects together. Vision Electric has over 100 years of combined experience among the ownership group. Pair that with Clayco’s decades-long national success, and we bring a refined and insightful team to every endeavor.
Let’s keep building better communities together!
Emily Sisson and I have something in common, and it’s not just the fact that we both love athleticism.
Immigration has always been a critical point of value in America’s prosperity. The “American Dream” would not be possible without the contribution of generations of immigrants to society, not to mention the priceless importance of multiculturalism. Despite this, the rhetoric surrounding immigration and its influence on U.S. institutions and ways of life has become increasingly hostile and rooted in misinformation. I recently read the book “How Migration Really Works: The Facts About the Most Divisive Issue in Politics” by Hein de Haas. I highly recommend it to everyone to better understand migration policies and national impact. As we get farther into this election year, debates surrounding immigration are escalating. Still, people don’t understand the fundamentals of migration or how it truly affects the U.S. To mitigate this, Hein de Haas draws on decades of research to destroy myths and set the record straight. The book highlights tense topics like global migration not being at an all-time high, climate change not leading to mass migration, and immigration mainly benefiting the wealthy instead of workers. He also notes that border restrictions have produced more migration – something that is commonly misreported and viewed as the only “solution” to the migration “problem.”
This past summer, I read the sad tale “Flying Blind: The 737 MAX Tragedy and the Fall of Boeing” by Peter Robison. I’ve always admired Boeing, just as my father did, so I was reluctant to recommend the book. People should read it now. Robison provides a gripping account of the 737 MAX crisis, unraveling the series of events leading to tragic consequences and Boeing's subsequent downfall. By including exclusive interviews with current and former employees, industry executives, and family members of the victims, it highlights the technical and managerial failures that contributed to the fatal crashes while analyzing the company’s flawed decision-making and lack of transparency.
