PHOENIX, ARIZ. – The Association of Union Constructors (TAUC) – the largest multi-craft union contractor association in the United States – today elected Gary Bohn to serve as national Chairman of the Labor Committee.
Mr. Bohn currently serves as senior advisor to Kiewit Power Constructors (KPC), a division of Peter Kiewit Sons’ Inc. He began his career 45 years ago in the heavy industrial construction field, working as a craftsman, supervisor and superintendent on several power, process and pipeline projects located across more than twenty states. He joined Kiewit as a construction manager during the construction of the Alaskan Pipeline, and spent more than six years working on several oil- and gas-related construction projects in and out of Alaska. In the late 1980s and 1990s, Gary was a key manager in Kiewit’s entry into the EPC power market. He served as project director on Kiewit’s initial EPC contract, a waste-to-energy project for Montgomery County, Maryland.
Gary spent the next three years as Kiewit’s operations manager in Indonesia, where he oversaw the building of geothermal plants under EPC contracts. Upon returning to the U.S., Gary was promoted to operations manager for Kiewit Industrial Co. for their North American work. Over the next several years he was directly involved in the successful execution of more than 10,000 MW’s of lump sum EPC power generation. During his career, many of the projects that Gary managed or sponsored earned awards for safety, quality and productivity. He credits many of the skilled union craft that worked on these projects for playing a large part in their success.
Gary retired from Kiewit Industrial Co. to his home in Omaha at the end of 2005. Since then he has continued to work as a consultant to private industry and as an advisor to Kiewit’s senior management in their power and energy businesses.
