Bowen Featured in National ENR Article for its Client-Driven Strategy

“From its humble beginnings in 1967, when construction teams mustered at the owner’s home, to being ranked 254th on ENR’s Top 400 Contractors list in 2015, Indianapolis contractor Bowen Engineering Corp. has grown strategically while playing to its strengths….”

Bowen has been featured in a cover story for ENR’s Contractor Business Quarterly edition, highlighting the growth and strategies of the national construction firm.  The article includes the following quotes from key Bowen partners:

“Bowen brings a lot of money-saving ideas and cost-effectiveness to the table,” says Jason Deadmond, IPL capital projects and engineering manager. He notes that Bowen’s approach to construction is different than that of most contractors because the firm employs four-year graduates of construction management or engineering schools to run their projects.  “Having a pool of knowledge and high-level thinkers [on staff] is tremendously helpful, especially in the estimating process,” Deadmond says. “When dealing with more complex scopes of work, this gives them an advantage, particularly on design-build projects.”

Dave Kiesel has worked with Bowen for 15 years in his current role as director of plant engineering for Citizens Energy Group. He says Bowen lends a design-build skill set to every project because it hires and trains highly competent people. “It’s a win-win-win situation for owners and consultants who work with Bowen,” Kiesel says.”
