RDG Planning and Design had the pleasure of working with Meco Henne Contracting on the St. Vincent de Paul Parish Center project in Omaha… Meco Henne got the job by creatively developing a shoring plan that saved time and money, and by figuring out how to utilize their own cranes and equipment to develop a staged erection plan that again saved a large amount of money for the church… it was obvious that Meco Henne's approach had the best interest of the parish in mind.
