The team of Gary, Dwight, and Bill were honored with Centuria’s annual employee recognition award for their work on successfully completing two of Centuria’s highest visibility projects: Installation of the new KLGX “NEXRAD” radar site in Copalis Beach Washington and replacement of the FAA’s Molokai, Hawaii NEXRAD tower.
This team spent months on the road this year. Gary, Dwight, and Bill successfully completed the site installation and system integration of the first new WSR-88D “NEXRAD” radar site in almost 15 years. This project required months of time on site in Copalis Beach, Washington during construction and installation of the radar site, tower and radar equipment shelters. Construction elements led by Gary, were all completed ahead of schedule. Before their suitcases cooled off, these three were off to Molokia, HI to support the replacement of the Molokai NEXRAD tower. They applied the same professional approach they brought to the Washington radar project also completed this project on time and on budget.
