Regions Bank Tower

When tornado-force winds ripped large sections of the curtain wall off Indiana’s second-tallest building, the 35-story Regions Bank Tower in downtown Indianapolis, the owner immediately called Jungclaus to help with this catastrophe.

Major downtown streets were closed, even as sensitive papers from law offices continued to rain down from a tower that had been opened like a tin can. Open to the elements and lacking a sprinkler system, the building was closed.

Using all the skills that we had developed over many years with ProSafety™ – and a few new ones – Jungclaus analyzed the Safety risks and devised a complete Safety protocol to assure Safe working conditions for those working in the building as well as public Safety professionals on the streets below.

Tellingly, even with all the layers of Safety planning, inspection and review on this project, we continued to provide additional Safety training. After all, the dangers were unprecedented and thus beyond what workers had experience in handling. Thus, one afternoon we brought some 120 workers together for additional training. One senior ironworker gave a moving personal Safety testimonial that made an indelible impression. Then, with $950 of pizza we celebrated our Safety commitment and success.

Indeed, we had something to celebrate. When the job was done, we had completed $5 million in round-the-clock work (mostly labor) without a single injury or even one close call.
